It is dirty politics, says Hardik Patel on leak of sex CD

"I am innocent, people are trying to defame me and tarnish my image", Patel told the media.

Earlier, Patel took to Twitter and said that the women of Gujarat have been insulted by the filthy politics. The sensational video has emerged at a time when the Patidar leader, who is rolling up his sleeves to hit back the ruling party in Gujarat-the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) for playing dirty politics after his alleged sex tape has become the talk of the town.

Later speaking with The Indian Express, the convener of the Patidar Anamat Andolan Samiti said that his "friends" in the BJP had warned him about such a video in the making. We may not have similar political views, but they are my friends. I am not anxious about my reputation but about the woman. It is very sad. He compared the tape to that of former BJP leader Sanjay Joshi's fake sex CD which had surfaced a few years ago.

Hardik said that he is "amused" that the BJP is so "petrified" of his existence in the political sphere.

The poll in the state will be conducted in two phases, on December 9 and 14. But, saheb is so concerned about my presence that they have to resort to these cheap tricks to defame me.

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. The video, which was also uploaded on YouTube but was subsequently taken down, shows a male bearing close resemblance to Hardik sharing private moments with a female in a hotel room. "This was panned by BJP to secure around 50 seats in the election but I don't care", he said.

"I may be subjected to this sort of treatment but is this not derogatory to the women of Gujarat", he asked today, adding his concern for the woman who features in the video.

The BJP rubbished Patels allegation and dared him to file a police complaint. "The women of Gujarat should do something to punish this", he said.
