14 candidates for 10 Rajya Sabha seats in UP

14 candidates for 10 Rajya Sabha seats in UP

Referring to Jaya Bachchan's selection as Samajwadi Party's Rajya Sabha candidate, he had said, "Films mein kaam karne wali se meri hesiyat kardi gayi, unke naam par humara ticket kataa gaya, maine isko bhi bahut utchit nahi samjha".

Members across party lines congratulated Ms. Bachchan for her renomination to the upper house and also condemned Mr. Agarwal's comments. Pandit Sukhram Sharma, Narayan Rane, Mukul Rai, BS Yeddyurappa and Naresh Agrawal, all great leaders.

Taking strong objection to his remarks, external affairs minister Sushma Swaraj rebuked him in a tweet meant to welcome his joining. With ace manipulator Naresh Agarwal on its side, the next ten days in Lucknow may witness hectic political maneuverings and exchange of money-bags in five star hotels in the state capital.

Rajya Sabha member from Samajwadi Party Naresh Agrawal on Monday joined Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), confirmed the sources.

Agrawal's term in the Rajya Sabha is ending next month and he was expecting a re-election to the upper House. The party chose Bachchan over Agarwal to pacify the faction led by the party chief's uncle Shivpal Singh Yadav, reports said.

The ruling BJP has chose to contest one more than the eight Rajya Sabha seats it is certain to win in Uttar Pradesh when polling is held on March 23.

The SP nominated Jaya Bachchan as its only candidate and made a decision to extendd the remaining votes to BSP candidate Bhim Rao Ambedkar.

The party decided that solitary candidate would be Bachchan, and this angered Agarwal, hitherto a loyalist of former chief minister Akhilesh Yadav. He also called Muslim women protesting against Triple Talaq as non-Muslims. "What he thinks doesn't matter, question is what is BJP doing?" "He is welcome. However, his comments regarding Jaya Bachhan ji are improper and unacceptable", she wrote. Likewise, lone Rajya Sabha candidate of Congress also reached Assembly to file his nomination papers and he was also flanked by senior party leaders. "That is even more painful", Agrawal said while expressing anger over Jaya being given a preference over him for re-entry to the Rajya Sabha by the Samajwadi Party.
