Jilted Naresh Agarwal ditches Samajwadi Party to join BJP

"Please do not say that I am joining the party as I am hopeful of a Rajya Sabha seat or something of that nature". "Films mein kaam karne wali se meri hesiyat kardi gayi, unke naam par humara ticket kataa gaya, maine isko bhi bahut uchit nahi samjha".

However, Swaraj termed his remarks "improper and unacceptable".

After joining the BJP, Agarwal said that he was given a backseat for a "woman working in films". "He is welcome. However, his comments regarding Jaya Bachhan ji are improper and unacceptable", she posted on the micro-blogging site Twitter.

BJP state president Mahendra Nath Pandey said that the party can't allow the spare votes to go waste and give opposition a cakewalk.

But the damage was done. His comments have also not gone down well with people on social media who have asked for the sacking of the leader.

The casteist remarks had prompted a strong reaction from some members of the audience.Later, speaking to reporters, Agrawal in an apparent defence of his comments, said, "Every person has a caste, and there is nothing new in this".

Agrawal, who has been one of the most vocal critics of the Narendra Modi government and the BJP in the Rajya Sabha in the last few years, lauded the Prime Minister and BJP chief Amit Shah. In a surprise move later, BJP "s state general secretary Vidyasagar Sonkar and Salil Bishnoi also filed a set of papers". We will do seva for the BJP.

However, in the given situation, BJP would essentially rely on the independent candidates while hoping for a defection in BSP, SP and Congress camps.

The BJP has fielded a ninth candidate for the 10 Rajya Sabha seats going to polls in Uttar Pradesh out of which the party is comfortably placed to win eight, in order to needle the new SP-Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) unity candidate for the 10th seat.

Agarwal, who belongs to the trading community, also referred to the traditional support of the community to the BJP. This makes 73. But even if the RLD's single MLA votes for their candidate, the two candidates will find it hard to win if Nitin votes against them.
