BJP’s East Delhi candidate Gautam Gambhir Friday filed a defamation suit against AAP chief and Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal, Deputy CM Manish Sisodia and his contender from AAP Atishi Marlena. This development comes hours after AAP accused him of circulating an offensive pamphlet on his rival Atishi.

The cricketer turned politician hit out at AAP saying that he is from a family where he is been taught to respect women. He condemned the despicable act meted out against him for mere propaganda.

Earlier on Thursday, Gambhir claimed that these vile pamphlets were printed and distributed by Aam Aadmi Party itself. Declaring that if proven guilty he would quit polls. Gambhir had stated yesterday, that he will be filing a defamation suit against Aam Aadmi Party for maligning his image. However, Gambhir also asked if Kejriwal fails to get any proof against him, will he quit the politics.

Meanwhile, in the notice addressed to Atishi Marlena, Arvind Kejriwal and Manish Sisodia, Gambhir has denied any relation to the alleged pamphlet and its deplorable contents.

“Statements made by the Noticees are baseless, without any foundation, extraneous, false and vexatious in nature as such statements have no iota of truth,” the defamation notice reads.

Asking the AAP leaders to withdraw all the statement made against him in the matter, the BJP leader demanded an unconditional apology for tarnishing his image with false and baseless allegations.

According to AAP, the letter, which is not signed by anyone, was published and circulated by BJP’s East Delhi candidate Gautam Gambhir. The pamphlet with the title Atishi Marlena- know your candidate, refers to Atishi as ‘mixed-breed’ and AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal as ‘Kuta Kejriwal’ and Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia as ‘Kanjar Sisodia’. The letter refers to Marlena as ‘Sisodia’s keep’ and a ‘prostitute’. The letter goes ahead to assassinate not only Marlena’s character but also that of Manish Sisodia.

Strongly denying all the accusations, Gambhir accused Arvind Kejriwal of being involved in the act of outraging the modesty of a woman, Gautam Gambhir while addressing Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal as ‘filth’ asked how low will he stoop just to win the elections.
