Hardik had last week voiced apprehension that the BJP might try to defame him with a sex CD for electoral gains. The video shows a man resembling the young leader of the Patel agitation and a woman in a compromising situation in a hotel room.

"He has the DNA of Sardar Patel, who could not be bought or broken by the Englishmen". In a threat that he later withdrew, Hardik Patel said that if the Congress' offer on reservation did not do justice to the Patels, he would ensure that Rahul Gandhi is heckled at public meetings.

Patidar leader Hardik Patel on Monday rubbished the alleged sex video featuring him and an unknown woman and claimed it was "a desperate attempt by the BJP to malign him and misguide the Patel community as to his intentions about getting reservation for them".

A sex CD was released in 2015 also, with exactly the same allegation - that it was Hardik in the video.

A man having a close resemblance to Hardik Patel can be seen with an unidentified woman, in the alleged sex CD. BJP is used to release such CDs to kill the career of their political target. "What can one expect from those who earlier released similar CD of Sanjay Joshi". Hardik said that he would tell the truth on November 18. He needs to grow as mass leader.

According to the media reports, the video was shot in May 2016. Youtube removed the video saying that it was against the channel's policy. "The BJP is under pressure".

Last week itself, Hardik Patel had predicted that as a "dirty trick" of the BJP, a video of him having sex would be circulated to damage his reputation ahead of the approaching Gujarat elections on December 9 and 14. What transpired between them was their personal look out, he said in media interaction late in the evening. BJP's Union minister of state for Road Transport and Highways Mansukh Mandaviya commented: "BJP is not involved in uploading the Hardik sex CD on the video sharing site".
