Ahmedabad : As Gujarat Assembly is gearing up for the upcoming polls, the politics has started showing its dirty colours too. Patidar Anamat Andolan Samiti (PAAS) chief Hardik Patel seems to be the latest victim.
A sleaze video featuring a man resembling Hardik Patel has gone viral over the internet. The man can be seen sharing some intimate moments with a woman. It has been alleged that the man in the video is none other than Hardik Patel, but the authenticity of the identity of man has not been confirmed.
Fearing loss of image and eventually votes in the upcoming elections, Hardik Patel released a statement claiming that the game of 'dirty politics' has begun.
He tweeted: "Dirty politics has begun now. It will not make any difference to me by defaming me. But the image of the Gujarati women is being tarnished."
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
Hardik Patel claimed that the CD has been doctored and denied all allegations saying the man in the video is not him.
"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 said.
Hardik Patel is likely to strike a deal with Congress ahead of Gujarat Assembly Elections 2017.
