Congress leader Milind Deora denied Sirsa’s charges and stating that his wife was also present at the party and that nobody was in a “drugged state”. Deora also asked Sirsa to refrain from spreading false news and spoiling the image of Bollywood stars and demanded an unconditional apology from the SAD leader.
My wife was also present that evening (and is in the video). Nobody was in a “drugged state” so stop spreading lies & defaming people you don’t know!
I hope you will show the courage to tender an unconditional apology https://t.co/Qv6FY3wNRk

“My wife was also present that evening (and is in the video). Nobody was in a “drugged state” so stop spreading lies & defaming people you don’t know! I hope you will show the courage to tender an unconditional apology,” Deora said in a statement on Twitter responding to Sirsa’s claim.
Sirsa responded to Deora’s statement stating he wasn’t aware that Deora’s family members were also present in the video.
“I can claim that Bollywood stars were taking drugs… No force in this world can make me apologise to these drug addicts. I am firm on my stand. They were taking drugs. They are spoiling the society. Such drug addicts belong to jail, not society. Therefore, the one who is asking me to apologise should go and check who were taking drugs,” Sirsa said.
