Udupi MLA Ragupathi Bhat caught in Sex Scandal Row - withdraws his candidature
Udupi : In a rather shocking incident, The MLA of Udupi Ragupathi Bhat has been allegedly been involved in a "Sex Scandal". The incident came to light when news channels started beaming reports this morning. The news channels have got their hands on a CD that clearly shows that the MLA was involved in an sexual activity with an unidentified female.The video though confirmed to be of the MLA or not being aired or telecasted on the mainstream media since they have been considered to be highly vulgar and unfit for viewing.
The MLA has withdrawn his nomination from contesting for the MLA in the upcoming elections. He said that this move of his was to save the party’s reputation and from saving it from being defamed. He also said that this is the work done by his opponents to defame him .
When asked if he was involved in any sort of scandal, He said that he is in no way involved in anything of such sort and all the claims made false. He says that the images have been morphed and It has been released during the elections to deprecate his image.
“I am feeling hurt and shamed, surprised and shocked. This is a heinous attempt at my character assassination. My reputation has been compromised. I am sure my political rivals are responsible for this. I have not committed any mistake. This is part of a political conspiracy to finish off my career. In the past too, attempts were made to end my political career, but I survived because of popular support. I feel that no one from my party is behind this conspiracy. I have asked the Chief Minister to hold an high level enquiry into the origin of the CD and meting out of maximum possible punishment to the guilty. I will return to politics only after the completion of the investigation. I have no idea as of now as to who is behind this CD. Those who manufactured this CD will definitely face the fruits of their evil action soon,” Bhat said.
On being asked by Suvarna News if he would want to contest this time his exact response was “ How do I face the voters and my supporters, You ask the people of Udupi and they will tell you what service and work I have done in that area, But someone has played a very cheap trick to eliminate me as they knew I was sure to win the elections this time too”.
For the voters and people this would not come as a major shock since questions regarding the character of the MLA have frequently been raised. His involvement in his wife Padmapriya’s death too has been questionable.
The MLA is said to have come from the Sangh Parivar (RSS) background and was well known for his participation and support towards various Hindu outfits. This incident should send a shock wave up the spine of these outfits. Moral policing would first required to be practiced and then to be preached. This extremely shameful act if proved to be true would be a severe blow to the BJP and its allies.
