"He is welcome. However, his comments regarding Jaya Bachhan ji are improper and unacceptable", tweeted Sushma Swaraj.

Agrawal, who lost out to Bachchan in the race for re-nomination to the upper house, on Monday quit the Samajwadi Party and joined the BJP. However, within minutes of joining the ruling party, Aggarwal created furore after he belittled actor- politician Jaya Bachchan as someone "who used to dance in films", remarks dubbed "unacceptable" by party leader Sushma Swaraj. I found it not proper. "My position has been compared to someone who works in the films".

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.

Before the 2014 Lok Sabha elections, Agarwal, in a controversial dig at Narendra Modi, said that someone who had worked at a tea shop 'can never have a national perspective, ' The Times of India reported. BJP state president said that the party can't allow the spare votes to go waste.

He was referring to the nomination of film actor Jaya Bachchan by the Samajwadi Party for a Rajya Sabha seat from Uttar Pradesh in the coming biennial elections, ignoring Agrawal's claim.

However, with Mr Agarwal's son Nitin, SP's MLA from Hardoi, also joining the saffron fold, it could be bad news for BSP supremo Mayawati, who was hoping to get her party's Rajya Sabha nominee win by getting the SP's excess vote and support from the Congress and RLD, which adds up to just about the required votes.
