A TV footage allegedly showing veteran Congress leader and Governor of Andhra Pradesh ND Tiwari, 86, in bed with three women has caused a major controversy in the country.
The sex clip shows an old man who is naked in bed with three women. Governor House was quick to issue a denial. Telugu channel ABN Andhra Jyothi had been airing the video since afternoon.
But the High Court was approached and it directed the TV channels, not to telecast it. By then the channel had, however, shown this clip that had apparently been shot with a spy camera, for hours. But on websites like Youtube.com the clip was visible.
Though another Congress' leader and former governor, who is also in 80s, had faced similar allegations, there was never any video or photograph that could be thrown to substantiate the charge. With Andhra Pradesh undergoing a volatile situation due to the KCR's agitation for separate Telangana, the scandal is adding to the discomfort of Congress.
