AAP supporters target Gautam Gambhir for allegedly using body double to avoid heat in election campaign


Former India cricketer and now BJP candidate from East Delhi, Gautam Gambhir, has faced criticism from AAP supporters for allegedly using his body double during a road show seemingly to avoid heat. In the viral photo, mostly shared by AAP supporters on Twitter, while Gambhir is sitting inside his car, his body double is seen waving at the crowd during a road show.

While Gambhir has not reacted on the latest viral photo, his rivals have used the photo to ask voters of Delhi if they will elected a representative, who could not withstand the exposure to heat.

Soon Gambhir’s supporters took to Twitter to counter the criticism for their icon.

Gambhir was in news on Thursday after his rival candidate from AAP, Atishi, accused him of circulating pamphlets that cast aspersion on her character. The cricketer-turned-politician has sent a defamation to AAP leaders including Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal.
