Politics in Delhi touched a new low on Thursday as AAP leader Atishi accused BJP candidate Gautam Gambhir of circulating pamphlets with derogatory remarks against her ahead of the Lok Sabha polls in Delhi on Sunday.

The pamphlet reportedly states that Atishi is a “very good example of a mixed breed”.

While addressing a press conference, Atishi breaks down saying that the “BJP has shown how low they can stoop”.

However, cricketer-turned-politician Gautam Gambhir rubbished the charge in a series of tweets saying that the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) had fabricated the allegation to win the elections.

He further said that he will withdraw his candidature if the allegations are proven right adding that he was ashamed to have a CM like Arvind Kejriwal.

AAP has alleged that the pamphlets, loaded with personal allegations and sexist remarks, were circulated by the BJP candidate in residential societies in East Delhi.

Addressing the media, Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia said, “the language in the pamphlet was so abusive and low that everyone would feel ashamed while reading it”.

“We had clapped for Gambhir when he used to bash opponents with fours and sixes while playing for India but never in our worst dreams, had thought that this man would stoop this low to win an election,” he added.

A teary-eyed Atishi said that if Gambhir can stoop so low to defeat a strong woman like her, how will he secure the safety of lakhs of women in east Delhi after becoming a parliamentarian.

Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal too came out in support of Atishi.

Atishi had earlier raised objections to Gautam Gambhir’s candidature and complained to the Election Commission that he had two voter ID cards in his possession. The complaint was, however, rejected.

Gautam Gambhir faces AAP’ Atishi and Congress’ Arvinder Singh Lovely in East Delhi in the Lok Sabha polls.
