Naresh Agarwal’s comments on Jaya Bachchan unacceptable: Sushma Swaraj

NEW DELHI: Welcoming the newly-inducted Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) member Naresh Agrawal, External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj on Monday slammed him over 'his comments regarding Jaya Bachchan. The Minister's statement comes shortly after former Samajwadi Party leader Naresh Agrawal joined the BJP. 'Naresh Agrawal has joined Bhartiya Janata Party. He is welcome. However, his comments regarding Jaya Bachchan ji are improper and unacceptable,' Sushma Swaraj. Earlier today, Agrawal attacked actor-turned-politician Jaya Bachchan for getting a ticket for the upcoming Rajya Sabha elections, slated to be held on March 23. 'Films mein kaam karne wali se meri hesiyat kardi gayi, unke naam par humara ticket kataa gaya, maine isko bhi bahut utchit nahi samjha. Main koi shart par nahi aya, koi Rajya Sabka ki ticket ki maang nahi hai (I was put at par with a film actor. My ticket was given to her. I have not come (to BJP) on any condition. I do not want a ticket to Rajya Sabha),' he had said.
