Jaya Bachchan snubs Naresh Agrawal over ‘film wali’ remark, says ‘I am a stubborn lady’

Prime News, National (New Delhi), March 14:- Actor-politician and Rajya Sabha MP Jaya Bachchan on Tuesday refused to comment on the remarks against her by BJP leader Naresh Agrawal.
“I am a stubborn lady, I will not answer,” she said while talking to media persons.
Meanwhile, facing a backlash for belittling Jaya, Agrawal on Tuesday offered his regrets but said his comments were twisted by the media.
“My intention was not to hurt anybody’s sentiments. I regret if my comment has hurt somebody’s feelings and withdraw my words,” he said on Tuesday.
Agrawal, who lost out to Bachchan in the race for re-nomination to the Upper House and on Monday had quit the Samajwadi Party to join the BJP, had said at a press conference that the SP denied him the RS ticket and gave it to somebody who used to dance and act in films.
His comments invited strong criticism from BJP leaders, including Sushma Swaraj, who said they were “improper and unacceptable”. (MR, Inputs: Agencies).
