Agrawal regrets 'film dancer' comment on Jaya Bachchan

Naresh Agarwal takes back his remarks on Jaya after facing criticism

He made his political debut from Hardoi and gave a big shock to his father, changed the ticket name from his father's to his own and said that his father wanted him to contest the election in 1984. Agrawal had lost out to Bachchan in the race for re-nomination to the upper House. Pandit Sukhram Sharma, Narayan Rane, Mukul Rai, BS Yeddyurappa and Naresh Agrawal, all great leaders.

His statement was criticised by BJP's Sushma Swaraj, who serves as the Minister of External Affairs. We have always welcomed leaders from Samajwadi Party with open arms since these are 2 very like-minded parties. Agarwal is a sitting Rajya Sabha member.

The BJP spoiled unopposed election to ten Rajya Sabha seats in Uttar Pradesh on Monday when it fielded three more candidates Anil Agarwal, Vidhya Sagar Sonkar and Salil Bishnoi, slapping polls for Upper House berths on March 23.

Meanwhile, Congress candidate for Rajya Sabha, Rajmani Patel also filed nomination papers in presence of party leaders, including State President Arun Yadav, Leader of Opposition in Assembly Ajay Singh, MLAs Jeetu Patwari, Hardeep Singh Dung, Spokesman Ravi Saxena etc.

Though the Nishad Party was an alliance partner of the SP in Gorakhpur Lok Sabha bypoll, it has no control over Mishra, which could work in favour of the BJP. "The RLD MLA from Chaprauli may also shift to the BJP camp", a BJP leader said.

Swaraj said in a tweet, "Shri Naresh Agarwal has joined Bhartiya Janata Party".

During the press conference, Naresh also praised Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Chief Minister Yogi Adityanth and Amit Shah but also maintained that his respect for Mulayam Singh Yadav and Ram Gopal Yadav is intact. "I haven't taken it kindly", Agrawal said.

"So far Jaya Bachchan is concerned, she was consistently loyal to the Samajwadi Party and to the party's system". "For somebody who used to dance in films, act in films, I was denied a ticket", Agrawal said.
