Samajwadi Party leader Naresh Agarwal joined the Bharatiya Janata Party on Monday after being denied a ticket to the Rajya Sabha.

Minister for External Affairs Sushma Swaraj lambasted Agarwal, calling his comment "improper and unacceptable".

"Shri Naresh Agrawal had joined Bhartiya Janata Party".

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

He called Bachchan one "who used to dance in films" as he was flanked by senior BJP leaders, including Union minister Piyush Goyal, at the BJP headquarters while announcing his political switch.

Mr Agrawal said the Samajwadi Party did not give him a Rajya Sabha berth from Uttar Pradesh and instead gave it to another person just because she "could dance and act in films". I found it not proper. His term in the upper house is coming to an end shortly.

Naresh Agarwal is not the first Samajwadi Party leader to head to BJP. Mr Agarwal asserted he had not joined the BJP for a Rajya Sabha berth or for any post.

"My comparison was drawn with those working in films".

Agrawal, who till recently had been making controversial comments against the BJP and even the RSS, showered praise on Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Amit Shah and Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath.

BJP on Monday chose to tackle the united opposition head-on by fielding three more candidates for Rajya Sabha polls, triggering a direct electoral contest with the SP and Congress-backed BSP nominee for one Upper House seat.

On Monday, Agrawal said: "I am joining the BJP as I think that until you are in a national party, you can not do anything for the society". The entry of Aggarwal into BJP put the leadership in an overdrive and the party fielded three more candidates in the state to ensure that it wins all the 10 RS seat from UP - that is beyond its entitled number of eight.

His statement didn't sit well with the actor-turned-politician's followers, who started demanding an immediate termination of Agrawal from the central party in power. He said that while he still respects Mulayam Singh Yadav and Prof. The state's ruling party has a surplus of 28 votes and if gets the support of Independents and gains through possible cross-voting, its ninth candidate could also get elected.
