Barely days after the Gujarat BJP found itself amidst considerable embarrassment because of its workers’ alleged involvement in a sex racket, the saffron party has hit the news headline for another wrong reason in Gujarat.

According to a report by Aaj Tak, former Surat mayor, Rajubhai Desai’s decision to share obscene photos on the BJP’s official WhatsApp group on 9 February has caused a huge controversy in Gujarat.

No sooner did Desai poste the porn images, several women BJP supporters left the group, which was essentially created to keep workers abreast of the party’s programmes on a regular basis. The group, according to the report, had several women workers of the BJP as members.

The report further added that the saffron party immediately deleted the WhatsApp group in question as soon as the incident of porn images surfaced.

Desai, for his part, denied that he had deliberately sent the images to the group adding that the porn photos were accidently shared in the group due to a technical fault.

“I don’t know how it happened but I am sure this was the work of some miscreant who took advantage when I had stepped out of my office for nearly two hours that day. My phone had run out of battery so I had left it in my office while it was being charged,” Desai was quoted by Ahmedabad Mirror.

As expected, the incident has been dominating the conversation among party cadres with the Surat BJP Chief Nitin Thaker seeking an explanation about the incident from Desai.

Condemning the act, Thaker said, “After hearing of the incident, I sought an explanation from Raju Desai. We will take appropriate action against him after he has sent a reply.”

The latest incident comes just days after local police arrested eight persons including local leaders of BJP in connection with the gangrape of the victim at Naliya town in Kutch district.

In her FIR, the 24-year-old woman alleged that she was raped by at least nine persons on different occasions after an accused made a video of the act and threatened to circulate the video clip.

The victim has alleged in her FIR that the accused have been running a sex racket in Kutch district and forcing victims to have sex with numerous persons after blackmailing them by making video.
