New Delhi: Launching an attack on BJP’s candidate Gautam Gambhir, Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia on Friday alleged that Gambhir is using a “duplicate” to campaign for him in order to avoid the heat.
Sisodia, on Twitter claimed that the doppleganger is a Congress leader named Gaurav Arora. He said it is a 'mahamilavat' of the BJP and Congress. “Gambhir is seated inside the air-conditioned car, people are garlanding his impersonator,” he added.
ये कांग्रेस और बीजेपी की महामिलावट है. गौतम गम्भीर ए.सी. गाड़ी में नीचे बैठे है. उन्हें धूप में समस्या है. उनकी जगह उनका हमशक्ल कैंप लगाकर खड़ा है. कार्यकर्ता 'डुप्लीकेट' को गौतम गम्भीर समझकर माला पहना रहे हैं.— Manish Sisodia (@msisodia) May 10, 2019
और जो डुप्लीकेट है वो असल में कांग्रेसी नेता है. https://t.co/bT0k0QYVSG
The attack comes amid an ongoing spat between the AAP and the BJP over a controversial pamphlet circulated against AAP’s Atishi.
On Thursday, Atishi accused her opponent Gambhir of having distributed lakhs of pamphlets that questioned her morals and were full of objectionable and deeply offensive remarks about her.
Gambhir, however, denied the allegation in strong terms and said he would quit politics if the charge is proven.
Delhi will go to polls on May 12, in the sixth phase of the Lok Sabha elections. The counting of votes will take place on May 23.
