On Thursday, AAP candidate Atishi broke down into tears at a press conference while accusing BJP candidate Gautam Gambhir of distributing pamphlets containing “vulgar and disparaging” remarks against her.
According to her, Gautam Gambhir distributed pamphlets that contain vulgar remarks against her and humiliate Aam Aadmi Party leader with nonsensical comments.
Gambhir is contesting against Aam Aadmi Party’s (AAP) Atishi Marlena from East Delhi constituency. Both of them have found themselves in the middle of a controversy in the run-up to the election on May 12.
Gambhir refused to accept the acquisition and said that he finds this allegation rubbish. He challenged Arvind Kejriwal to prove his point.
Gambhir tweeted, “I declare that if it is proven that I did it, I will withdraw my candidature right now. If not, will u quit politics?
He further tweeted, “If he can prove that I have anything to do with this pamphlet filth, then I will hang myself in public. Otherwise, Arvind Kejriwal should quit politics. Accepted?”

Many people are supporting Gambhir and finding this case baseless. They are considering this a publicity stunt. People are saying that Atishi is doing this to win the election.
Harbhajan Singh stood by his former colleague Gambhir and said he could never believe that Gautam can ever speak ill about a woman. In a tweet, he said, “I am shocked to note yesterday’s events involving Gautam Gambhir. I know him well and he can never talk ill for any woman. Whether he wins or loses is another matter but the man is above all this”

Mr @GautamGambhir! You want to be elected by distributing these handbills against me and Atishi?
Shame on you Mr Gambhir!
People of East Delhi know me and Atishi very well but through these handbills you have introduced yourself. This is your character. pic.twitter.com/o4ADTsDcwT

BJP’s Mamta Kale considers this is an absolutely baseless charge that has been leveled against Gautam Gambhir by AAP. It’s being said that AAP is politicizing things just to win the election.
