  • Rajya Sabha polls BJP Congress RJD TRS JD-U announce candidates

In a major twist ahead of the Rajya Sabha elections, outgoing Samajwadi Party MP Naresh Aggarwal joined the BJP at party headquarters in Delhi, protesting his party's decision to deny him re-nomination for a third term and chosing actor Jaya Bachchan instead. "His comments regarding Jaya Bachhanji are improper and unacceptable", Swaraj said on Twitter. Agarwal's son Nitin Agarwal, who is current MLA from Hardoi also joined the BJP. "Nobody found it proper", said Agrawal, who is set to retire from the Rajya Sabha on April 2. Barely minutes after he was welcomed into the saffron fold by Union minister Piyush Goyal, the former SP leader faced a controversy by making a sexist comment against Ms Bachchan, by saying he was compared with a "filmon main kaam karne wali jo nacchtae gaatae hain (someone who works in films and sings and dances)". I did not find it appropriate.

On March, Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav had announced Jaya Bachchan as its candidate for the only seat in the Upper House it is likely to win.

Later, Anil Agarwal reached the state assembly premises as the ninth candidate of the BJP and filed his papers. To recall, Agrawal was earlier the general secretary of the Samajwadi Party and a Rajya Sabha member.

Describing his joining the BJP as "homecoming", he said he would unconditionally do whatever the party wanted him to. "I congratulate Naresh ji, Nitin ji, Mukesh ji, and Madhur Mishra ji and thousands of party workers along with them who recognised the development taking place in the country under Prime Minister Narendra Modi and especially the rapid development that has swept Uttar Pradesh under Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath". Party sources said Aggarwal's attack on Jaya Bachchan was an indication that her re-election was not safe anymore.

Agrawal has often changed parties in the last over 30 years of his political career. He said that while he still respects Mulayam Singh Yadav and Prof. The Samajwadi Party is going downhill. "Today he is a leader of Modiji's party".
