Earlier, the AAP had criticised Gautam Gambhir for not attending a crucial meeting, saying that the former cricketer was "busy enjoying" in Indore at a time when Delhi was reeling under severe air pollution
BJP leader Rajeev Babbar, who moved the petition on behalf of the party's Delhi unit, sought proceedings against them for ‘harming’ the reputation of the BJP by blaming it for the deletion of the names of ‘voters’ from electoral rolls here.
The BJP was leading in all the seven seats in the national capital, with three of its candidates ahead by over one lakh votes, while the Congress and the AAP were trailing at the second spot in five and two seats respectively.
AAP's East Delhi candidate, Atishi on Thursday broke down while reading the pamphlet against her, that she alleged has been distributed in the constituency at the behest Gambhir, a charge denied by the cricketer-turned-politician himself.
Cricketer-turned-politician, Gautam Gambhir has denied all the charges and has sent defamation notices to Atishi, AAP national convenor and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, and Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia.
Many agree that the Kejriwal government did bring education into focus and infused energy into a moribund system that ran a thousand-odd schools in Delhi. But there is a flip side to the feel-good story.
