The BJP leader Ramakanta Dewri has denied his involvement in a video purportedly showing the MLA from the Morigaon Assembly seat in sexual act.
The video has gone viral on social media leaving the ruling BJP red-faced. The video apparently shows Ramakanta Dewri in a compromising position with a woman in a hotel.
However, speaking to local TV channels, Ramakanta Dewri said that the video was a conspiracy to defame him.
“It is purely a conspiracy hatched against me by my political adversaries to malign my image as I am a contender for a berth in the ministry, which will be expanded soon,” Ramakanta Dewri said.
The Morigaon legislator has demanded an inquiry including a forensic test of the video.
Dewri said, “Let there be a forensic test of the video. If it establishes that I am the man featuring in it, I will quit politics.”
The BJP has not yet reacted to the sex scandal.
