This comes after journalist Swati Chaturvedi brought the bais to the notice of social media users. She tweeted:
"Has the fashion police attacked Gambhir yet? Or only for the women? I think @GautamGambhir is looking great."

This is exactly how a newly elected MP should NOT behave infront of the parliament. @mimichakraborty , you are a disgrace to the exalted office that you've been elected to. We hope you take note of the seriousness & start acting like an MP. https://t.co/ZfSGqvHJI8— Ujjwal Pareek (@ujjwalpareek) May 27, 2019
