At a time when the campaigning for Gujarat assembly elections is in full swing, an alleged ‘sex CD’ of Patidar quota agitation leader Hardik Patel has gone viral on social media.
In a 10-minute video, Hardik was seen with a girl in a room for a brief period but later the video was turned off.
The Patidar leader has called it as an attempt to defame him and called the video as morphed.
“Now the filthy politics has begun. You can defame me but it will make no difference. The women of Gujarat have been insulted,” he said.
Reacting to it, Union Minister Prakash Javadekar said he is unaware of the video and did not want to comment on it.
“This violation of the right to privacy. He is single, unmarried and has the right to have his personal space. Unless he is forcing himself on any woman, he can’t be attacked,” he said
Last week Hardik had said that the BJP might try to malign his image with a sex CD in order to make electoral gains.
“The BJP has prepared a doctored sex CD to defame me and it will be released just before the election. What can you expect from the BJP? So just wait, watch and enjoy,” Hardik had said.
