New Delhi: The former Andhra Pradesh Governor, N.D. Tiwari, who quit over allegations of inappropriate behaviour while holding high office, on Tuesday claimed his resignation was not an admission of guilt and that the TV channel used new technologies to combine footage to malign him.
Mr. Tiwari said he did not want to cause embarrassment to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Congress chief Sonia Gandhi.
“She [Sonia] knows already, I think, and Manmohan Singh ji also knows it very well, I do not want to embarrass them,” Mr. Tiwari told CNN-IBN.
“No scandal, there is no scandal, I don’t believe in any scandal but because my wife is dead that is why it is so difficult to talk to a lady, this you find in the cinematic field,” he said.
He said the channel “has made a combination of so many photos out of them one is mine, but that does not mean that they combine many photos and publish it in a channel. They have combined photographs using the new electronic technologies.”
“In the Raj Bhavan so many delegations meet me and it is very surprising that these channels could do this type of joining of 2-3 photographs.”
Asked how alleged call girls can enter the Raj Bhavan, he replied, “No. No call girl can enter there...No question.” — PTI
