This latest video features a man with a tonsured head relaxing on a bed with a woman and two men
A day after a sex video -- allegedly featuring Patidar leader Hardik Patel; the allegation has not been proved -- went viral on social media, another video has surfaced.
PTI reported that this video features a man with a tonsured head relaxing on a bed with a woman and two men.
PTI added that Patel had tonsured his head in May this year along with his supporters to protest against alleged police atrocities on members of his community during the Patidar quota agitation.
Patel is still to react to the second video, but he had blamed the release of the first video on the BJP.
He had tweeted yesterday:
जिसको जो करना हैं कर ले,पीछे हटने वाला नहीं हूँ।जम के लड़ने वाला हूँ।२३साल का हार्दिक अब बड़ा हो रहा हैं।मुझे बदनाम करने में करोड़ों का ख़र्च किया जाता हैं।— Hardik Patel (@HardikPatel_) November 13, 2017
अब गंदी राजनीति की शुरुआत हो गई हैं।मुझे बदनाम कर लो कोई फ़र्क़ नहीं पड़ेगा,लेकिन गुजरात की महिलाओ का अपमान किया जा रहा हैं।— Hardik Patel (@HardikPatel_) November 13, 2017
Interestingly, Patel had foretold -- on November 10 -- the release of the "sex CD".
Hardik had said then that the BJP would be responsible, and that they would do so for electoral gain.
"The BJP has prepared a doctored sex CD to defame me and it will be released just before the election. What else can one expect from the BJP? So just wait, watch and enjoy," Hardik had said then.
When he was asked how he knew about the CD, Hardik had said, "This is typical of the BJP."
The Patidar agitation
Patel had led the massive Patidar agitation in the state in 2015.
The Patidars had been asking for reservations for the community in government jobs and educational institutions.
The Congress has since been courting Patel, who has said that he will work towards beating the BJP in the upcoming Gujarat elections.
Attempts have been made to defame Patel earlier too.
A sex CD was also released in 2015, with exactly the same allegation -- that it featured Hardik.
