Two more alleged videos of Hardik Patel go viral, Amid sex tape bomb
Barely a month ahead of the Gujarat Assembly polls, a purported sex clip of Hardik Patel on Monday surfaced in social media, which the Patidar quota stir spearhead claimed was morphed and circulated at the behest of the BJP as part of "dirty politics" to defame him. The BJP rubbished Patel`s allegation and dared him to file a police complaint.

In the video, which appears to have been shot in a hotel on May 16, 2017, a person resembling Hardik can be seen in a compromising position with an unidentified woman.

The clip emerged in the afternoon when Patel was in a meeting with key members of the Patidar Anamat Andolan Samiti (PAAS) here to discuss the proposal given by the opposition Congress about how the party would grant reservation to Patels if voted to power. Patel has pledged to help take down the BJP in next month`s election in Prime Minister Narendra Modi`s home state.

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.

Now, new videos being circulated on social media - a local channel has also broadcast them - end with a tagline that claims "Hardik Patel is seen drinking with his friends". Gujarat is a dry state. The videos claim to be from May when Hardik Patel and his supporters shaved their heads and marched about 155 kilometres to demand "justice for Patels" ahead of the PM`s visit to Gujarat.

BJP has governed Gujarat for 22 years. The Patidars, who for years backed the party, are being urged by Hardik Patel to support the Congress now instead. Two years ago, Hardik Patel launched a movement which caught on quickly, particularly with the Patel youth. At large rallies, he said the Patels, once powerful and prosperous, have been excluded from progress in Gujarat because they are not among the beneficiaries of affirmative action policies.
