Just before the Gujarat Assembly elections 2017, the sex tape of Hardik Patel was leaked and went viral on Social media. While he has claimed that the clip was morphed one and circled at the command of the BJP as a feature of “messy governmental issues” to insult him.
“Just few days back, I told the media that such CDs will be circulated. This is just the beginning of dirty politics. I am sure that BJP people would circulate some more CDs because the man who did it recently joined the party in Delhi. But I am not worried at all about such tactics,” He told reporters.
“This is a morphed clip and I will give evidence in the coming days to prove my innocence. The BJP wants to retain power by defaming me,” he said.
Hardik Patel’s sex CD Goes Viral, he blames BJP
The BJP rubbished Patel’s assertion and challenged him to file a police complaint. In the video, which seems to have been shot in a lodging on May 16, 2017, a man looking like Hardik can be found in a bargaining position with a unidentified lady. The clasp rose toward the evening when Patel was in a meeting with main people from the Patidar Anamat Andolan Samiti (PAAS) here to talk about the proposition given by the resistance Congress about how the party would allow reservation to Patels if voted to control. Remarking on the sex clip purportedly indicating him, the 24-year-old Patidar leader said it was the start of messy governmental issues and the BJP would discharge numerous all the more such “morphed” videos to malign him in front of elections.
While Union Minister Mansukh Mandaviya reacted abruptly to Patel’s accusation.
“It is a shameful incident in public life. If the video clip is fake, Hardik Patel should approach police and file a complaint,” Mandaviya said.
He said the BJP has nothing to do with the clip. Patel has been veering towards the Congress in front of the elections and the party guaranteed it would give the compelling Patidars constitutionally valid reservation. The Gujarat unit of the Congress sponsored the quota leader, saying the video seems to have been messed with.
“As the BJP is now staring at defeat, it has resorted to such dirty and shameless tricks. This video clip appears to have been tampered with. The people of Gujarat will avenge it,” AICC spokesperson Shaktisinh Gohil said.
