Remarks against Jaya Bachchan shameful: Harsimrat Kaur Badal

Facing a backlash for belittling actor-politician Jaya Bachchan, BJP leader Naresh Agrawal today offered his regrets but said his comments were twisted by the media. "He is welcome. However, his comments regarding Jaya Bachhanji are improper and unacceptable", Sushma tweeted in both English and Hindi, seeking to reach out to a large audience. "My son, who is an SP MLA, is also joining the BJP and he will vote for the BJP in the Rajya Sabha elections", he said. In his 38-Years political career, Naresh Agarwal has changed the party six times. Just because she could dance and act in films, my candidature (to Rajya Sabha) has been sacrificed for her. She said "artists" ought to be respected for their work and more so for women.

Already having 28 spare votes, BJP is pinning hopes on four Independent MLAs and the black sheep in opposition for winning another seat which would increase the treasury bench strength in Rajya Sabha where it still does not have a majority.

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".

His statement didn't sit well with the actor-turned-politician's followers, who started demanding an immediate termination of Agrawal from the central party in power.

Agrawal's term in the Rajya Sabha is ending next month and he was expecting a re-election to the upper House. "We condemn Naresh Agrawal".

BJP Spokesperson Sambit Patra, who was at the press conference, picked up the microphone immediately after Agrawal concluded his brief speech.

The BJP candidates who filed their nominations on Monday were: Union Finance Minister Jaitley, Ashok Bajpai, Vijay Pal Singh Tomar, Sakal Deep Rajbhar, Kanta Kardam, Anil Jain, Harnath Singh Yadav, GVL Narasimha Rao, Anil Kumar Agarwal, Salil Bishnoi and Vidyasagar Sonkar.
