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.

Gautam Gambhir batted for two full days in Napier to save a Test single-handedly. So those saying he has a body double to campaign in Delhi’s heat – please.

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.
