Naresh Agarwal said that he didn't mean to hurt anyone's sentiments and if he had done so, he is apologetic.
Agarwal during a press conference had said, “My ticket was denied for a person who dances in films. That is even more painful. I will vote for BJP in Rajya Sabha and I thank PM Modi for showing faith on me.”
Hours after Rajya Sabha MP Naresh Agarwal joined BJP, Minister of External Affair (MEA) Sushma Swaraj on Monday welcomed the former Samajwadi Party general secretary for joining the saffron party but criticised him for his comments on Jaya Bachchan.
The external minister on her verified Twitter handle tweeted, “Shri Naresh Agarwal has joined Bhartiya Janata Party. He is welcome. However, his comments regarding Jaya Bachhan ji are improper and unacceptable.”
