SAMAJWADI Party leader Naresh Agrawal on Monday joined Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) saying his decision was “unconditional” and maintained that he has realised that “one cannot make full use of potential and serve the entire country without joining a national party”.

“Mr Agrawal joins BJP with his team. His contribution will go a long way in strengthening the party,” Union Minister and BJP leader Piyush Goyal told reporters at BJP headquarters here. Talking to reporters in the presence of Goyal and other BJP leaders like Gaurav Bhatia and Sambit Patra, Agrawal sounded his displeasure on being denied ticket for Rajya Sabha by the Samajwadi Party leadership.
