Criminal complaint against Gautam Gambhir


Gautam Gambhir is in huge trouble. As we reported earlier that Gautam Gambhir is running in general election, he is a candidate of ruling party BJP from East Delhi constituency. Now his opposition candidate Atishi of AAP had filed criminal complaint against him for possessing two voter ids.

According to Atishi, Hehas two voter IDs in two separate constituencies of Delhi – Karol Bagh and Rajinder Nagar. No citizen is allowed to possess two voter ids let alone an election runnning candidate. If any candidate has two voter ids, he has to cancel one voter id before running into elections. If the candidate fails to do so, it is considered as crime and is treated as per law.

Atishi in a series of tweets attack Gambhir and informed that she has filed a complaint in Tis Hazari Court against Gambhir regarding this issue. She said “I have filed a criminal complaint in Tis Hazari Court against the BJP candidate from East Delhi Gautam Gambhir over his possession of two voter IDs in two separate constituencies of Delhi, Karol Bagh and Rajinder Nagar. Under Section 17, read with Section 31, false declaration in the matter of electoral rolls is punishable with jail time of up to one year.”

Atishi has called for immediate disqualification of Gautam Gambhir. It is not the first time  that opposition parties have attacked Gambhir. Earlier also both opposition parties Aam Aadmi Party and the Congress had sought rejection of Gautam Gambhir’s nomination over a technical discrepancy. The poll officer rejected the objection by saying there is substantial compliance in Mr Gambhir’s papers.

Gautam Gambhir had joined BJP last month and was named the party’s candidate from East Delhi earlier this week. The former India opening batsman is yet to react to the allegations.

Here are tweet of Atishi and Arvind Kejriwal –
