Hyderabad, Dec 26 (ANI): Andhra Pradesh Governor ND Tiwari has landed in a fresh controversy after a local TV channel telecast explicit clippings showing of the veteran Congress leader with some women in a compromising position.
The clips ran for about an hour before the Hyderabad High Court restrained the channel from airing the video.
Tiwari's implication in an alleged sex scandal may lead to his removal from the post of Governor.
Earlier, a women help group protested outside the official residence of Tiwari over his alleged involvement in a sex scandal.
The activists from the women's group tried to break the police cordon but were stopped by riot police and whisked away.
Meanwhile, leader of Opposition in Andhra Pradesh assembly and Telugu Desam Party President N Chandrababu Naidu has demanded the immediate sacking of Tiwari.
"The only way for him (Tiwari) is to resign or the Centre should sack him," Naidu said.
"Unfortunately all standards are degenerating and today what they have shown it is very bad and also everybody should be ashamed of it. So what I demand immediately governor should resign or otherwise government of India should sack him. Even in this there are some reports that some MPs are also involved, there is a big scandal in it. The Centre should immediately order to CBI inquiry and those who are all culprits in this scandal should be punished very severely," said Naidu.
Allegations of extramarital affairs are not new in Tiwari's six-decades-long political career.
Tiwari is a respondent in a paternity suit filed by a man in the Delhi High Court claiming toe his natural son. (ANI)
