Patidar leader Hardik Patel is making headlines once again and this time for all the "wrong" reasons as his alleged sex video has gone viral. 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.
Though no media where the video is being circulated claims authenticity of the clip, it became viral soon. Hardik Patel, the Patidar leader who has vowed to not allow the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) to return for yet another term, on Monday said the ruling party was out defame him.
Hardik Patel a week ago warned that the BJP would employ a "sex CD" to discredit him.
