Naresh Agarwal joins BJP, targets Jaya Bachchan

Samajwadi Party Rajya Sabha member Naresh Agarwal on Monday joined the BJP, saying ‘dancers and film actors’ were preferred over him for the nominations for the upper house of Parliament.

“My comparison was drawn with those working in films… I was rejected for those who dance in films, work in films. I found it not proper. Nobody found it proper,” said Agarwal, referring to Samajwadi Party selecting film actress Jaya Bachchan as its candidate for the Rajya Sabha.

Agarwal’s term in the upper house ends shortly and he had protested Jaya’s nomination.

Describing his joining the BJP as ‘homecoming’, he said he would unconditionally do whatever the party wanted him to.

“I have not joined the Bharatiya Janata Party for any Rajya Sabha ticket, nor have I set any condition.”
