Bharatiya Janata Party’s candidate from East Delhi constituency, Gautam Gambhir has sent a defamation notice to Aam Aadmi Party leaders Atishi Marlena, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, and Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia, demanding an unconditional apology for making “defamatory” comments against him.
This action by Gambhir comes after AAP and Atishi accused Gambhir of distributing derogatory pamphlets against Atishi and made her break down at a press conference. Ganbhir in tweet had dared if charges were proven he would withdraw his candidature.
