New Delhi, (9/5/2019): Cricketer-turned-politician Gautam Gambhir today denied the allegations levelled against him by the AAP’s East Delhi constituency candidate Atishi, saying he will withdraw his nomination if her accusations were proven true.
In a series of tweets, Gambhir said: “My Challenge number 2, to Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and Atishi Marlena, I declare that if its proven that I did it, I will withdraw my candidature right now. If not, will you quit politics?”
Slamming Arvind Kejriwal, Gautam Gambhir, the Bharatiya Janata Party’s candidate for East Delhi, said, “I abhor your act of outraging a woman’s modesty and that too your own colleague, and all this for winning elections? I feel ashamed to have a Chief Minister like Kejriwal, he added.
His remarks came after Atishi Marlena accompanied by Delhi Deputy CM Manish Sisodia broke down while reading a pamphlet containing “obscene and derogatory” remarks against her that she claimed has been distributed in the constituency by her BJP rival Gautam Gambhir.
