An alleged sex video of 24-year-old pro-reservation Patidar leader Hardik Patel was telecast on local Gujarati TV channels in Ahmedabad on Monday, with the firebrand youngster laughing it away as an expected ploy to defame him though it heated up the political climate in poll-bound Gujarat.

The video shows a Hardik Patel-lookalike with an unidentified woman, fully clothed and with her back to the camera, and then the room turns dark. Reacting, Patel said, "I had been saying for some time that all such dirty things, including such a video, would be flung at me, but I don't care and I will continue my fight against the BJP."

His supporters claimed the video was morphed. Patel said it was a conspiracy against him by the ruling BJP, which was "known to be adept at this". He pointed out that sometime ago, BJP insiders floated such a video of one of their own leaders Sanjay Joshi.

Previously, a CD of the Patidar leader has surfaced on social media, in which he can be seen with a woman in a room. Speaking to media, Patel said that the video has been released to malign his image in the light of the upcoming elections in the state.

"This was a very pathetic allegation levelled against me. I am not worried about my reputation but about the woman. This kind of politics is not expected. Gujarat women should wake up and do something against random people using videos like this. This was panned by BJP to secure around 50 seats in election but I don't care," he said.

Coming down heavily upon the saffron party, the Patidar leader said that using women to stay in power is shameless. Earlier, Patel took to Twitter and said that the women of Gujarat have been insulted by the filthy politics.
