AAP takes dig at Gautam Gambhir for using 'lookalike' during campaigning

Gautam Gambhir

There seems to be a difference of opinion between the Delhi BJP and its East Delhi candidate Gautam Gambhir over handling the controversy surrounding the alleged circulation of offensive pamphlets against East Delhi AAP candidate Atishi.

The former cricketer, however, strongly denied the allegation and said that the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) "finds a fixation everyday, this time they found my clone".

The escalation in the AAP-BJP war took place as campaigning tapered down for voting in Delhi on Sunday for the national election. She also asked that how women would feel safe if men like Gambhir get elected.

Gambhir said that if AAP fails to prove the allegations, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal should quit politics.

Gambhir's comments came hours after he was accused of circulating pamphlets with derogatory and casteist remarks against his rival candidate Atishi Marlena.

Cedric Richmond of Louisiana said the road ahead may be "messy" but Democrats must fight to "protect our democracy". Last week, Trump told Fox News that he did not want McGahn to testify, saying, "That is all".

Atishi has lodged a formal complaint with the Delhi Commission for Women over an "obscene and derogatory" pamphlet targeting her distributed in the constituency, saying she holds the BJP and Gautam Gambhir directly responsible.

Kejriwal's defamation notice comes after Gautam Gambhir sent out defamation notices to the Delhi chief minister and his deputy Manish sisodia and Atishi asking them to withdraw their charges against him and tender an unconditional apology or face legal action.

"I had welcomed Gambhir myself when he joined politics but I never imagined he would stoop to this level during Lok Sabha polls", Atishi said. How can women expect safety if people wid such mentality are voted in? "We don't know anything about such a pamphlet", said Pradeep Kumar, a shop owner in Krishna Nagar. "Atishi, stay strong. I can imagine how hard it must be for u".

Earlier in the day, Delhi's deputy chief minister Sisodia had accused the cricketer-turned-politician of distributing pamphlets in an attempt to defame Atishi. "It is precisely this kind of forces we have to fight against", he had tweeted. "They can do anything like getting their leaders slapped and distribute scandalous pamphlets to be in the race for Lok Sabha elections that they are badly losing".

Meanwhile, the BJP backed Gambhir and hit out at both the AAP and Atishi.
