GE Results 2019: Gautam Gambhir Leads From East Delhi
BJP’s Gautam Gambhir Leads From East Delhi, AAP’s Atishi Trailing Behind
Former cricketer and BJP candidate Gautam Gambhir is leading from East Delhi, early trends at 9.30 am for the Lok Sabha election results show. Mr Gambhir is contesting against AAP’s Atishi and Congress’s Arvinder Singh Lovely in the constituency.
During the campaign for the Lok Sabha elections in East Delhi, Atishi had accused Mr Gambhir of circulating derogatory pamphlets that attacked her personally.
The BJP candidate denied the allegations and responded with a defamation notice, to which Delhi Deputy Chief Minister and AAP leader Manish Sisodia also shot a similar counter-threat.
Mr Gambhir put out a series of tweets accusing AAP of making up the allegations in a desperate plan to try and win the election. Speaking to NDTV, he alleged that AAP had circulated the pamphlets.
He also sent a notice to Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, Manish Sisodia and Atishi demanding an “unconditional apology” after the Aam Aadmi Party accused him of circulating the pamphlets.
