Naresh Agarwal apologises for sexist jibe at Jaya Bachchan
External affairs minister Sushma Swaraj rejected Naresh Agarwal’s comments about actress-politician Jaya Bachhan, few hours after the Uttar Pradesh politician joined the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and criticised the Samajwadi Party (SP) for ignoring him and selecting “dancers and film actors” for Rajya Sabha elections. Sushma Swaraj quickly rejected his comment. “Shri Naresh Agarwal has joined Bhartiya Janata Party. He is welcome. However, his comments regarding Jaya Bachhan (sic) ji are improper and unacceptable,” she wrote on Twitter.
