An alleged sex video of 24-year-old Patidar leader Hardik Patel was telecast on Gujarati TV channels in Ahmedabad on Monday. Patel, however, laughed it away saying it was an expected ploy to defame him though it heated up the political climate in poll-bound Gujarat.

The video shows a Hardik Patel-lookalike with an unidentified woman, fully clothed and with her back to the camera, and then the room turns dark.

Reacting, Patel said, “I had been saying for some time that all such dirty things, including such a video, would be flung at me, but I don’t care and I will continue my fight against the BJP.”

His supporters claimed the video was morphed.

Patel said it was a conspiracy against him by the ruling BJP, which was “known to be adept at this”. He said that some time ago, BJP insiders floated such a video of one of their own leaders Sanjay Joshi.
