GUWAHATI, Feb 19: BJP’s Morigaon MLA Ramakanta Deori has denied the allegation that he had sex with a girl as shown in a section of electronic media yesterday. The MLA lodged an FIR at Morigaon police station in this connection. He said that the man shown in the video clip is not him, and that it is a political conspiracy hatched against him. He requested the police to conduct a test of the video clip in the forensic laboratory so as to unearth the truth. Meanwhile, with the video clip being viral people belonging to various parties and organizations in Morigaon staged protest today. APCC president Ripun Bora, on the other hand, said: “The MLA should be suspended immediately so as to ensure a free-and-fair inquiry into the sex scandal.” State BJP president Ranjit Kumar Dass said: “I’ve doubt the veracity of the video footage as the man seen in the footage has hair on his head, while the MLA hasn’t any.”
