New video of Hardik sur­faces

The Free Press Journal - - NATION -

A day af­ter a pur­ported sex video of Hardik Pa­tel sur­faced, an­other clip emerged on Tues­day in­which a man re­sem­bling the Pati­dar quota stir spear­head is seen re­lax­ing on a bed with two men and a woman. The man with a shaven head is seen drink­ing wa­ter while seated on the bed. Pa­tel had ton­sured his head in May this year with his sup­port­ers to protest against al­leged po­lice atroc­i­ties on mem­bers of his com­mu­nity dur­ing the quota ag­i­ta­tion. Though Pa­tel is yet to re­act to the sec­ond video, he had ac­cused the BJP of play­ing "dirty pol­i­tics".

In the video, which ap­peared to have been shot in a ho­tel on May 16, 2017, a per­son with close re­sem­blance to Pa­tel was seen in a com­pro­mis­ing po­si­tion with an uniden­ti­fied woman.Com­ment­ing on the sex clip pur­port­edly show­ing him, the 24-year-old Pati­dar leader said it was the be­gin­ning of dirty pol­i­tics and the BJP would re­lease many more such "mor­phed" videos to de­fame him ahead of polls.

"Just a few days back, I had said such CDs will be cir­cu­lated. This is just the be­gin­ning of dirty pol­i­tics. I am sure BJP would cir­cu­late more CDs as the man who did it re­cently joined the party in Delhi,” he said.
