BJP MLA Sanjay Puram files case after seen with bar dancer in video clip

Gondia: Maharashtra BJP MLA Sanjay Puram has lodged a police complaint accusing his opponents of maligning his image, after a video purportedly showing him dancing with a bar girl went viral on social media.

In the video, Puram, who represents Amgaon-Deori seat in Gondia district, is seen holding the hand of a bar girl and a liquor bottle while dancing on a Bollywood number.

However, the legislator claimed the video was “doctored” and featured his “lookalike”.

He lodged a case last Thursday at Deori police station in Gondia against unidentified persons under IPC Section 500 (defamation), a police official said on Sunday.

Talking to reporters in Deori, Puram alleged it was a “conspiracy” by his opponents to malign his image ahead of the next month’s state Assembly polls.

“I have done a fair amount of work in my five-year term and have always been among the people, taking the party’s ideology to them. In last five years, the party has scaled a new height in the region,” he said.

“The opposition leaders are scared of their defeat in the upcoming election and hence, they have doctored a video and made it viral with an intention of maligning my image,” he said.
