New Delhi | AAP leader and Delhi’s deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia has alleged that former cricketer Gautam Gambhir is using a ‘duplicate’ during the roadshow.
Manish Sisodia, resharing a number of tweets, claimed that Gautam Gambhir had been using a ‘duplicate” to stand in the scorching sun while the new BJP leader was sitting comfortably in an air-conditioned car.
“Have heard about a stunt double in movies, a runner in cricket, but have seen a duplicate in campaign for the first time,” Mr Sisodia tweeted in Hindi.
“This is the mahamilawat between the Congress and the BJP. Gautam Gambhir is sitting in an air-conditioned car. He has problem with the heat. In his place, a duplicate wearing a cap is standing. Workers are garlanding the duplicate Gambhir. And this duplicate is a Congress leader in reality,” he added.
Gambhir, however, has not responded to the AAP’s charge as of yet.
Gautam Gambhir is the East Delhi candidate for BJP, against the AAP leader Atishi Marlena.
The fight between Gambhir and Atishi took a new turn when pamphlets were distributed, which contained derogatory content on Atishi.
AAP accused Gautam Gambhir of being responsible for the pamphlets, which Gambhir strongly denied.
The East Delhi Lok Sabha constituency will witness a three-cornered contest between Gambhir, AAP’s Atishi and Congress leader Arvinder Singh Lovely. Delhi goes to polls on May 12.
