Kirit Somaiya video in compromising position: A BJP leader claims a “political conspiracy.”

Kirit Somaiya, BJP leader is allegedly seen in the viral video doing a video call chat with a woman while in a compromising position.

 

After airing on a Marathi news channel on Monday, a purported video that claimed to show Kirit Somaiya in a “compromised position” quickly gained popularity.

 

A protest by the Uddhav Thackeray-led Shiv Sena faction (UBT) and Sharad Pawar’s Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) was also organized as a result of the viral video, which also sparked sharp reactions from Twitter users.

On Tuesday, a UBT leader said that, Kirit Somaiya should be expelled from the party.

 

NCP leader of Sharad Pawar faction, Vidya Chavan, said, ” I was personally let down by the Kirit Somaiya video footage. His aggressive attitude and offensive gestures are alarming. As a prominent figure known for exposing corruption, if such misconduct is true, I believe appropriate action should be taken,”

 

Kirit Somaiya, demanded a thorough investigation of the situation to prove his innocence. Devendra Fadnavis, Deputy Chief Minister, was urged by Somaiya in a letter requested to conduct a thorough investigation into the issue of the veracity of the viral video. Somaiya posted a picture of the letter on his official Twitter account. He claimed that he had never harassed a woman and asked Fadnavis to investigate the situation.
