Days after being exposed by Cobrapost’s Operation Karaoke, former Bigg Boss contestant Sambhavna Seth has launched an abusive attack against the website. In a video message, Seth said that there was nothing wrong in accepting money to discreetly push the BJP’s agenda through her social media accounts.
She said, “When you call a celebrity for campaigning and product promotion or big celebrities, who do ads for Lux, do you think they do it for free? They had conducted this sting operation 7-8 months ago, but have decided to broadcast it now. Why did they not take any other political parties’ names? This clearly shows that their agenda was to target the BJP that the BJP pays people to campaign.”
Contrary to Seth’s claims, of the 36 celebrities, who were offered money to promote the agenda of political parties, some of them were asked to support the Congress and the Aam Aadmi Party. For example, Raza Murad, who refused the offer, was asked to promote the Congress, while Tisca Chopra, who too was exposed, was asked to push the agenda of the AAP.
Seth launched an abusive attack against Cobrapost as she continued, “Let me tell you that I am BJP supporter. My entire family supports the BJP. So, these Cobrapost people can stuff this cobra in their ar**. ”
She also threatened to send a legal notice to Cobrapost for revealing her bank details. Addressing Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Seth said that she was willing to join the BJP now.
In the undercover video, Seth was seen discussing the offer with a Cobrapost reporter, who had introduced himself as a representative of a PR firm managing the political campaigning of the BJP. Such was her excitement that even before the reporter could finish his sentence, Seth had said, “The best part for me (of your offer) is that I too support the BJP. This is good since my entire family supports the BJP.”
She had even gone on flaunt the success of her YouTube channel when the reporter said that she was required to promote the BJP using her social media accounts on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. “You don’t want me to use my YouTube channel? My YouTube channel is very successful,” she had said.
She had even agreed to mislead her fans by hiding the real agenda behind her social media posts in support of the BJP. What was even more striking in her conversation with the Cobrapost reports that despite claiming to be a staunch supporter of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, she had agreed to accept 80-90 percent of her payment in black money. Modi had introduced the note ban in November 2016 claiming that it will end the practice of black money. Seth had quoted Rs 50 lakh as her fee to be a part of the Cobrapost’s discreet campaign.
Here’s what Seth, who has acted in several Hindi and Bhojpuri films as an item girl had said:
Cobrapost had stung as many as 36 entertainment celebrities, who agreed to accept money to push the agenda of political parties by using their social media accounts in exchange of money.
