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

Talking to reporters in Deori, Puram alleged that it was a "conspiracy" by his opponents to malign his image ahead of the next month's Mahrashtra 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 elections and hence, they have doctored a video and made it viral with an intention of maligning my image," he said.
