Agarwal had left the party embarrassed after he remarked that the SP had equated him with the film actor "who used to dance in films".

"He is presently at 36 MLA votes after the son of Naresh Agarwal, an SP MLA, yesterday (Monday) made a decision to vote for our candidate. The RLD MLA from Chaprauli may also shift to the BJP camp", a BJP leader said. With Naresh Agarwal joining BJP with his MLA son Nitin Agarwal in tow, chances of BSP win have further dimmed.
