Gautam Gambhir sends defamation notice to AAP’s Atishi, CM Kejriwal and his deputy Sisodia

BJP’s East Delhi candidate Gautam Gambhir on Thursday sent a defamation notice to Atishi, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and his deputy Manish Sisodia after the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) accused him of circulating an offensive pamphlet on his rival Atishi.

Earlier in the evening, he said, “I will definitely file a defamation case against them. You can’t tarnish someone’s image just like that, if you don’t have the proof. I have never given a negative statement against anyone so far in my election campaigning.”

The cricketer-turned-politician also pledged to quit politics, even if it meant resigning the day he won the election, if AAP proved its charge.

Earlier in the day, Atishi broke down at a press conference called by AAP, where leaders displayed a pamphlet full of religious and sexist attacks on the candidate. “If Gambhir can stoop so low to defeat a strong woman like me, how can he ensure security for women as an MP?” asked the 37-year-old Oxford alumnus.

Gautam Gambhir put out a series of tweets accusing AAP of making up the allegations in a desperate plan to try and win the election.

“They have been the ones who distribute pamphlets. I don’t know where that pamphlet has come from. It has been there for a long time…tactics on how to malign someone’s image. I’m sure none from BJP have ever been involved in something like this. I can give you in writing neither me neither my entire team nor our workers have ever got into something like this,” he said.
