Supporting his fellow cricketer Gautam Gambhir who is currently mired in political controversy against his East Delhi rival and AAP leader Atishi Marlena, former Indian team bowler Harbhajan Singh has tweeted saying that 'Gambhir could never talk ill of any woman'.
Earlier on Thursday, AAP held a conference in the nation's capital city to address the malicious issue wherein a charge was made against the BJP candidate of distributing pamphlets claiming Marlena to be a 'prostitute' furthermore appealing the voters to not vote for the 'prostitute'
She said, "I am very much saddened for doing this press conference. I welcomed Gambhir when he filed his nomination. I admired him as a person. But he stopped very low for just an election. I don't want money and fame. Gambhir's team circulated a letter against me."
Subsequent to the press brief, AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal calling out Gautam Gambhir cited the 'safety of women' if people of 'such mentality' are voted in power.
Following the charges alleged against him, Gambhir has filed a defamation case against AAP convener and Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal, Deputy Delhi CM Manish Sisodia and his election contender from AAP Atishi Marlena, hours after the leaders imposed allegations against the cricketer-turned-politician of circulating pamphlets with derogatory remarks about Atishi Marlena in the National Capital.
In the notice addressed to Atishi Marlena, Arvind Kejriwal, and Manish Sisodia, Gambhir has denied any relation to the alleged pamphlet and/or deplorable contents.
"Statements made by the Noticees are baseless, without any foundation, extraneous, false and vexatious in nature as such statements have no iota of truth," the defamation notice reads.
On Friday, Gambhir has openly challenged Delhi CM and AAP chief Arvind Keriwal to quit politics if he is unable to prove the charges he had made against him. BJP's Gautam Gambhir will face AAP's Atish Marlena for the East Delhi constituency which goes to polls on May 12.
