Former team India star player and East Delhi Member of Parliament Gautam Gambhir has come down heavily on Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal for his irresponsible behavior and lack of foresight leading to a mass exodus of migrant workers from the national capital. 

"Who is responsible for what we saw in Anand Vihar on Saturday? It's horrendous and shameful. Thousands were there defying the lockdown. Who is responsible? The Delhi Chief Minister had no foresight or plan for these workers. They have no food. Delhi government should have provided them food and shelter so that they did not need to leave the city. Now he is talking big. How can he actually do what he has promised so late," Gambhir told Republic TV Live from his residence on  Sunday.

"Have Delhiites elected him for playing blame games? Kejriwal is disseminating false propaganda on the Prime Minister and Chief Ministers of other states. He is blaming it on the Prime Minister for the fiasco. This is highly unacceptable. He is shirking his responsibility as Chief Minister of Delhi," Gambhir observed.
