New Delhi: Prior to voting on 12 May in the national capital’s East Delhi Lok Sabha seat, the verbal duel between the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has peaked. After Atishi alleged that cricketer-turned-BJP candidate Gautam Gambhir circulated a pamphlet with vulgar and obscene content in the constituency, former AAPian and current Delhi BJP leader Shazia Ilmi has come out in support of her

Shazia said on Twitter, addressing Atishi, that the “dirty tricks department” of the AAP is at work. The same kind of filthy things was written about Shazia by the trolls of that party, the BJP leader alleged.

Gautam Gambhir is a decent person, Shazia said. Playing a caste card or a gender card wouldn’t work, she added. She told Atishi that the ways of the latter were known to her for a “long time”.

Earlier, Atishi had claimed she had welcomed Gambhir when he entered politics, but the BJP and he had stooped to a very low level of political discourse.

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal had, following the allegations of Atishi, tweeted, “Never imagined Gautam Gambhir to stoop so low. How can women expect safety if people wid such mentality are voted in? Atishi, stay strong. I can imagine how difficult it must be for u. It is precisely this kind of forces we have to fight against.”

After the statement of Kejriwal and Atishi, Gambhir hit back. He tweeted, “I abhor your act of outraging a woman’s modesty @ArvindKejriwal and that too your own colleague. And all this for winning elections? U r filth Mr CM and someone needs ur very own झाड़ू to clean ur dirty mind.”

“My Challenge no.2 @ArvindKejriwal @AtishiAAP I declare that if its proven that I did it, I will withdraw my candidature right now. If not, will u quit politics?” Gambhir added.

The former cricketer concluded by saying, “I feel ashamed to have a CM like @ArvindKejriwal.”

Retweeting one of the tweets of Gambhir, Shazia wrote that Atishi first changed her name to play the caste the card; then, along with Amanatullah, she played the religion card. Now, by writing filthy things about herself, Atishi was defaming a decent and popular person.
