Gautam Gambhir’s ‘Missing’ posters surfaces in Delhi
Missing posters of Bharatiya Janata Party’s (BJP) East Delhi Member of Parliament (MP) and former cricketer Gautam Gambhir have surfaced in Delhi after he missed the Parliamentary Standing Committee meet on rising levels of air pollution in the National Capital.
The posters were pinned on trees in the ITO area. This was after he had spoken severely on the issue grappling Delhi and condemned the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) for not addressing the issue properly.
The posters read, “Missing. Have you seen this person? He was last spotted in Indore eating Jalebis. Entire Delhi is looking for him.”
It may be noted that Gambhir was in Indore recently as a commentator for the India-Bangladesh cricket fixture and former Indian cricketer VVS Laxman had shared a photograph of him along with broadcaster Jatin Sapru having jalebis.
Gambhir later gave a reply to his critics on the microblogging website captioned ‘My work will speak for itself.’ He said, “My commitment to my constituency and my city should be judged by the work that is happening there. From getting high-end compost machines installed for clearing Ghazipur landfill to reforming EDMC schools by providing digital classes and infrastructure, to installing sanitary pad vending machines or the benefit of women and providing free food to the poor, I have turned no stone unturned in the past 6 months in making sure that people who voted for me get the best.”
He concluded the letter taunting the AAP that he had not entered politics to make money, but he does have a family to support. He added he believed in hard-earned money and not using public funds to further political ambitions.
