Making his political debut former India opener Gautam Gambhir has begun his new innings in style with a win form the East Delhi Lok sabha constituency representing the BJP.
He defeated Congress’ Arvinder Singh Lovely and Aam Aadmi Party’s Atishi Marlena from the East Delhi seat in Lok Sabha election 2019.
In what was a bitterly fought contest, several allegations were made by AAP against Gambhir and he hit back hard .
While speaking to media , Gambhir slammed Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and accused him of stooping to deplorable lows in a bid to win from East Delhi seat. “I want to tell the CM that elections will come and go but the day you lose your principles and ideals, you will lose everything,” the cricketer-turned-politician said. “If you level such a deplorable allegation just to win one seat then I have nothing much more to say to you.”
