Hardik Patel says viral video is morphed, BJP is playing dirty games

Gujarat election Hardik Patel's glory may fizzle out

Accusing BJP of playing dirty politics, Patel said that the ruling party had done the same in the past too.

On November 4, the Patidar leader had predicted that BJP may release a video to defame him. "However, I will fight back and you will see a stronger Hardik Patel emerge from this".

The woman is also seen taking a phone call as Hardik makes rounds of the bed, trying to figure out where the switch to turn off the lights is. "The six crore people of Gujarat are with me". However, some PAAS leaders, who recently joined the BJP, sought to charge Hardik with misleading the Patidar youth with pipe dreams. "If Hardik does not clarify on the sex CD in 96 hours then I will be forced to release these audio clips". "They are planning to release it before the elections".

Throwing a challenge at PM Modi, Hardik said the people of Gujarat can not be fooled by such gimmicks. "But I am not anxious at all about such tactics", He told reporters. He compared the tape to that of former BJP leader Sanjay Joshi's fake sex CD which had surfaced a few years ago.

According to The Times of India, when asked how he learnt about the CD, Hardik said, "This is typical of the BJP".

Patel, who is expected to forge an alliance with the Congress ahead of the assembly polls in Gujarat, further said that the alleged sex video is morphed. They are actually making me bigger than even I consider myself to be. "This was panned by BJP to secure around 50 seats in the election but I don't care", he said.

Union Minister of Fertilisers and Chemicals Mansukh Mandaviya, on the other hand, that the BJP had nothing to do with the tape and instead targeted the Opposition Congress.

Gujarati channels have been airing a four-minute clip which shows a man resembling Hardik Patel with an unidentified woman. When pressed for a reply as to who is the person or on the content of the video, the minister said, "It so shameful that I can not stoop so low as to describe the content of the CD".
