AAP’s Atishi accuses Gautam Gambhir of circulating misogynist ‘derogatory pamphlets’ about her, breaks down while reading it

Posted on

Atishi, Aam Aadmi Party’s candidate from East Delhi seat, broke down at a press conference on Thursday where she accused cricketer-turned-politician, Gautam Gambhir of BJP, of distributing pamphlets with derogatory remarks against her.

Atishi, who was accompanied by Delhi deputy chief minister Manish Sisodia during a press conference, broke down as she read out the pamplet in front of reporters.

“They’ve shown how low they can stoop. Pamphlet states that ‘she is very good example of a mixed breed’,” Atishi said.

She said she had welcomed Gambhir, a former cricketer, when he entered politics but now the BJP has stooped to an unexpected level.

AAP chief and Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal tweeted that he never imagined Gautam Gambhir to stoop so low. “How can women expect safety if people wid such mentality are voted in? Atishi, stay strong. I can imagine how difficult it must be for u. It is precisely this kind of forces we have to fight against,” he tweeted.

Gautam Gambhir however blamed Arvind Kejriwal for the pamphlets and accused outraging a woman’s modesty to win polls.

“I abhor your act of outraging a woman’s modesty @ArvindKejriwal and that too your own colleague. And all this for winning elections? U r filth Mr CM and someone needs ur very own झाड़ू to clean ur dirty mind,” he tweeted.

Manish Sisodia said the “language in the pamphlet is so abusive and low that everybody will feel ashamed while reading it.”

Reacting on the issue, former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti has said that failing to discredit Atishi on her work, ‘bigot’ Gautam Gambhir is indulging in slander.
