| Sunday | 12th May, 2019
Jankar, the chief of Rashtriya Samaj Paksha (RSP), had contested against NCP leader Supriya Sule from Baramati in the 2014 Lok Sabha elections.
They told me that the video had my comments regarding the Dhangar community.
He added that the extortionists had threatened to make the video viral and damage his political career and his reputation, as well as to swing votes of the Dhangar community away from the BJP’s candidate from Baramati, Kanchan Kul.
They said the video contained my comments… that I could not win in the 2014 Lok Sabha elections because I did not get all the votes of the Dhangar community,” said Jankar.
The alleged extortionists have been arrested after Jankar filed a police complaint.
