If BJP respects women they will act against Naresh Agarwal, says Akhilesh

New Delhi, March 13: Even before Naresh Agarwal could relish his new association with BJP, he has become a stuck bone in the latter's throat, which they can neither swallow nor can spit.

The BJP is leaving no stones unturned to woo the women, the 'nari shakti' which also make a solid vote-bank. And here former Samajwai Party veteran Naresh Agarwal has called veteran cinestar Jaya Bachchan 'one who dances in the films'. 

Samajwadi Party president Akhilesh Yadav today dared the Bharatiya Janata Party to take action against Rajya Sabha MP Naresh Agarwal over his indecent comment against actor-politician Jaya Bachchan.

"We condemn BJP's Naresh Agrawal for using indecent comment against Jaya Bachchan. It is an insult to the film industry and every woman in India. If the BJP truly respects women, then they should act against him. The women commission should also take action," Akhilesh tweeted.

On Monday, the former SP leader created a furore after calling Bachchan as someone "who used to dance in films".

Agrawal, who lost out to Bachchan in the race for re-nomination to the upper house to Jaya Bachchan, on Monday quit the Samajwadi Party and joined the BJP.

"I have been reduced to somebody working in films. For somebody who used to dance in films, act in films, I was denied a ticket (for Rajya Sabha). I did not find it appropriate," Agarwal said while joining the BJP at its headquarters.

A couple of hours later, senior BJP leader and its most prominent woman face Sushma Swaraj took to Twitter to criticise Agarwals comments.

"Naresh Agrawal has joined Bhartiya Janata Party. He is welcome. However, his comments regarding Jaya Bachhan ji are improper and unacceptable," the external affairs minister tweeted.
