New Delhi: Fellow cricketers have come forward in support of cricketer-turned-politician Gautam Gambhir, vouching for his integrity and claiming that he can never talk ill about any woman. Offspinner Harbhajan Singh and former batsman VVS Laxman lent support to the Bhartiya Janta Party’s candidate with both taking to Twitter on Friday to lend support to Gambhir after the AAP accused him of distributing offensive pamphlets against its candidate and his rival Atishi.
Singh said he was shocked to know about the incident and that Gambhir “is above all this”. “I am shocked to note yesterday’s events involving @GautamGambhir. I know him well and he can never talk ill for any woman. Whether he wins or loses is another matter but the man is above all this,” Singh tweeted.
Gambhir mocked for using look-alike
New Delhi: The AAP took a dig at BJP’s East Delhi candidate Gautam Gambhir Friday, alleging that the cricketer-turned-politician had used a lookalike during a roadshow to save himself from scorching heat. The BJP rubbished the charge, saying the AAP was trying to create a controversy over a “minor” thing. Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia said the incident is an example of the “mahamilwat” between Congress and BJP.
