He is welcome. However, his comments regarding Jaya Bachhanji are improper and unacceptable, " Ms Swaraj said in a tweet.

At the press conference headed by Senior BJP leader Piyush Goyal in New Delhi to officially welcome Naresh in the party, the latter spewed his distaste for Jaya Bachchan along with the lines, "it was even more painful that his ticket has been given to a someone who dances in films".

BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra immediately clarified that his party respects people from all fields and welcomes them in politics.

"Naresh Agrawal has joined Bhartiya Janata Party".

Bachchan's third term in the Upper House comes to an end on April 3. Par meri koi shart nahi aya, koi Rajya Sabka ki ticket ki maang nahi hai. To recall, Agrawal was earlier the general secretary of the Samajwadi Party and a Rajya Sabha member.

During the press conference, Agrawal also announced that his son Nitin Agarwal, who is a Samajwadi Party MLA, will vote for the BJP in the biennial elections to the upper house. "I was influenced by the work done by Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Adityanath".

"Naresh Agrawal ji felt he could serve the country and his state better if he joined the BJP", Goyal added.

Agrawal is known for making controversial remarks ranging from calling former Naval officer Kulbhushan Yadav, who is in Pakistan jail, a terrorist to making derogatory comments against communities and other leaders. The Samajwadi Party is going downhill.

Agarwal has often changed parties in the last over 30 years of his political career. He has also stoked controversies.

He later joined the Samajwadi Party and was a minister in the Mulayam Singh government.
