Case Against BJPs GautamGambhir For Election Rally

By Preeti Sigh On 27 Apr, 2019

The Delhi Police has filed a case against cricketer-turned-politician Gautam Gambhir for "holding a political rally without taking permission", on the directives of the Election Commission today. The BJP's latest recruit had not taken permission for his rally on April 25 in Delhi's Jangpura, violating the model code of conduct, the Election Commission said. Gautam Gambhir - a supporter of the BJP government's policies - was welcomed in the party by senior leader Arun Jaitley last month. Mr Gambhir has replaced Maheish Girri as the BJP candidate from East Delhi, lining up a clash with Arvinder Singh Lovely of the Congress and AAP's star candidate Atishi. Taking a dig at the 37-year-old former cricketer, Atishi tweeted, saying "First, Discrepancies in nomination papers. Then, Criminal offence of having 2 voter IDs. Now, FIR for illegal rally. My question to @GautamGambhir: When you don't know the rules, why play the game? (sic)" In a petition filed on Thursday, Atishi has alleged that Gautam Gambhir had provided false information in his nomination papers. Atishi claimed that Gautam Gambhir is a registered voter in Delhi's Karol Bagh as well as Rajinder Nagar, both of which fall under the Central Delhi parliamentary seat. The court will hear the case on May 1. The former cricketer is one of the richest candidates in Delhi, with an annual income of over Rs. 12 crore. A veteran of 58 Tests and 147 one-day internationals, Gautam Gambhir was a key member of the Indian teams that won the T20 World Cup in 2007 and the One-Day International World Cup in 2011.
