Derogatory pamphlets: AAP candidate Atishi files complaint against Gautam Gambhir with DCW

Derogatory pamphlets: AAP candidate Atishi files complaint against Gautam Gambhir with DCW

Gambhir has been fielded as BJP candidate in East Delhi constituency. Gautam Gambhir is sitting inside an AC auto as he has issues standing in sunlight. Sisodia added that AAP workers are garlanding the impersonator and not Gambhir. While addressing the press, Atishi broke down saying that she never expected the cricketer-turned-politician taking the electoral fight to an unprecedented low.

Manish Sisodia, meanwhile, threatened to file a counter suit in the matter and said he would be sending a notice for defamation to him.

AAP though has not been able to establish a direct link of these pamphlets to the BJP.

On Thursday, Atishi - who is BJP leader and former cricketer Gautam Gambhir's rival for the Delhi East Lok Sabha seat - at a press conference accused the BJP candidate of creating and distributing a pamphlet containing sexist attacks and derogatory comments.

"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.




Sources in Aam Aadmi Party told NDTV that the President of the central market in Surajmal Vihar also received the pamphlet by post.

During the press conference, she asked - "If he (Gautam Gambhir) is doing this against one woman, what about the lakhs of women in east Delhi who are anxious about their duty".

Mr Gambhir, 37, slapped a defamation notice to Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, his deputy Manish Sisodia and Atishi, and said he will sue them if they don't withdraw their allegations and apologise. In the notice, Gambhir has also been asked to publish the apology along with true and correct facts in print and on social media, within 24 hours, failing which criminal proceedings would be initiated against him. "Atishi, stay strong. I can imagine how hard it must be for u". Tweeting a picture of Gambhir sitting inside a vehicle, Sisodia said, "Gambhir is sitting inside an AC auto due to scorching heat, while his lookalike who is a Congress leader is campaigning on his behalf".

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal reiterated the same question through his tweet - How can women expect safety if people with such mentality are voted in?

"Language in this pamphlet, distributed in East Delhi, is so abusive and low that everybody will feel ashamed while reading it".
