Meri koi shart par nahi aya, koi Rajya Sabka ki ticket ki maang nahi hai (I have been compared with those who dance and work in films. I am not here on the condition of Rajya Sabha ticket),’ Agarwal said.Also readJaya Bachchan could be richest Rajya Sabha MP after declaring assets worth Rs 1000 croreThe statement left BJP red-faced with spokesperson Sambit Patra immediately distancing the party from Agarwal’s statement.
