PDP chief Mehbooba Mufti took to Twitter and slammed BJP's East Delhi candidate Gautam Gambhir over the allegations made by Aam Aadmi Party of circulating pamphlets with derogatory remarks about Atishi Marlena in the National Capital.
Taking to Twitter, former Jammu and Kashmir CM Mehbooba Mufti targeted Gambhir and wrote, "how Indian cricket produced such a misogynistic bigot". She further stated that "everyone can vouch for the tremendous change AAP's Atishi has brought in public schools":
AAP's East Delhi candidate Atishi on Thursday alleged that her opponent Gautam Gambhir circulated pamphlets that questioned her morals contained objectionable and deeply offensive remarks about her.
Addressing a press briefing in the matter, Atishi broke down while reading the content of the pamphlet, following which posed one question at BJP's Gautam Gambhir.
"I have only one question for Gautam Gambhir. If he is doing this to win the elections against one woman who is contesting against him, then what will do for the lakhs of women in east Delhi who are worried about their safety," she added.
AAP convener and Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal further tweeted that he "Never imagined Gautam Gambhir to stoop so low. How can women expect safety if people wid such mentality are voted in?"
However, minutes after AAP's allegation, Gautam Gambhir took to Twitter and claimed to withdraw his nomination if proven to be guilty in the matter. Furthermore, he unsparingly challenged the AAP chief to quit politics if he fails to prove the same. The cricketer-turned-politician called the Delhi Chief Minister 'filthy', moreover stating how he needs his own 'broom' (AAP's logo) to 'clean his dirty mind'
