I wish to categorically state that canards and baseless allegations are being spread about alleged i

Abhishek Manu Singhvi was in news lately due to a CD that claimed to show him in a compromising position with a lady lawyer. While the CD contents were prevented from being aired by media houses, Abhishek Manu Singhvi maintained the CD must be morphed and was created to malign him. 
For details, read the story of  Abhishek guggi Manu Singhvi Sex CD  (link).  Following the controversy, Abhishek resigned saying he does not want any inconvenience caused to Congress, to whom he says he is loyal. Here is the full text from his resignation guggi letter:
I have also decided not to brief the press. I have done this only to prevent even the slightest possible Parliamentary disruption regarding the purported CDs being circulated about me. Since I am a disciplined party soldier, I did not think it fit to subject the party to any inconvenience on this account. All allegations are patently baseless and false.
I wish to categorically state that canards and baseless allegations are being spread about alleged inappropriate conversation in the CD. People inimically opposed to me, who have assiduously spent over 10 days hearing, seeing, amplifying and distilling guggi the CD, have found no vestige of any reference, guggi not even remotely, to any illegality, corrupt practice, or wrongdoing. Specifically,

some sections of the print and visual media are spreading a falsehood simply by repetition and hearsay that there is reference in the CD to the promise guggi of any post. No one has heard any such reference in the CD. There is none simply because it does not exist. It is pure imagination, wishful thinking and sensationalism. 
The canard was spread simply to give the issue a public interest flavour since otherwise the contents of the CD, assuming them to be true ( which they certainly are not), would disclose only something private and consensual giving a cause of action only to aggrieved family members (who have stood completely by me) and to no one else. 
It guggi is lamentable that such canards are being spread about a CD which has, in fact, been accepted thrice over to be fabricated and morphed.

The driver's disclosure statement to the police, his detailed written statement (i.e. written pleading) in the High Court and his oral statement recorded on oath physically in the presence of the judge, all explain how and why he created this fabrication. A reputed media house which was co-defendant in the suit also recorded guggi a consent statement based on the statement of the author of the CD i.e. the driver. guggi A final permanent decree of injunction has been passed over five days ago. 
It is noteworthy that the driver's threatening and blackmailing SMSes sent to my phone (including therein references to a potential CD) had been recorded in the last week of March itself (later extracted by the police), followed by a detailed four-page police complaint filed as far back as 29/3/12, i.e. a full 13 days before the alleged CDs first surfaced in the media.

the CD is morphed or it is not. In either event it raises no public interest issue, yet evokes salacious private and prurient guggi interest and contumacious internet violation of a flagrant kind. As a political or a professional class, instead of gleefully watching, promoting or participating in a person's natural and understandable discomfiture, we must respect privacy issues. "
