14 candidates for 10 Rajya Sabha seats in UP

Samajwadi Party Rajya Sabha member Naresh Agarwal on Monday joined the BJP, saying "dancers and film actors" were preferred over him for the nominations for the upper house of Parliament. "He is welcome. However, his comments regarding Jaya Bachhan ji are improper and unacceptable", union minister Sushma Swaraj has tweeted. Instead the party made a decision to re-nominate Ms Bachchan who also retires on April 2. I did not find it appropriate. His term in the upper house is coming to an end shortly.

The remarks have also caused a furore on social media, with several people already calling for BJP to sack him.

Almost half an hour after all eight BJP candidates filed their nominations and left, Agarwal, who runs an engineering college in Ghaziabad and a school in Meerut, walked into the Tandon Hall of Vidhan Sabha along with BJP's Gonda MLA Shailesh Singh and filed his nomination. "Before I request Piyush Goyalji to hand over the membership to him, I would like to clarify one thing from this platform: Whether it is a film star or just a party worker, everyone is respected". Party sources said Aggarwal's attack on Jaya Bachchan was an indication that her re-election was not safe anymore. "Meri koi shart par nahi aya, koi Rajya Sabka ki ticket ki maang nahi hai", Naresh Agrawal said on joining BJP.

He expressed his admiration for prime minister Narendra Modi and UP chief minister Yogi Adityanath. Though their names have not figured in the official list of the BJP, the move is being seen in political circles as a "Plan B" of the ruling party.
