Naresh Agrawal remark on Jaya Bachchan improper, says Swaraj
ter Piyush Goyal, at the BJP headquarters while announcing his political switch.
Minister for External Affairs Sushma Swaraj lambasted Agarwal, calling his comment “improper and unacceptable”.
While he showered praise on PM Modi and BJP chief Amit Shah, earlier this year, he had made sly casteist comments on Modi at the All-India Vaishya Mahasammelan in Lucknow, calling him a ‘teli’. He had been shouted down at the congregation.
In Rajya Sabha, Agarwal had linked the names of Hindu gods with genres of alcohol in Rajya Sabha while speaking on cow vigilantism and lynchings. After a furore following his recital of a couplet, later his remarks were debunked and he had apologised.
