Cricketer-turned-politician Gautam Gambhir today took a dig on Delhi Chief Minister and Delhi Jal Board Chairman Arvind Kejriwal over toxicity in the tap water of Delhi which the government provides ‘free’ to residents and Aam Aadmi Party supporters’ obsession with his viral picture eating jalebi.

Gambhir tweeted ‘jal ya jalebi? (water or jalebi?)’ questioning Aam Aadmi Party’s priorities while attacking him for skipping the Parliamentary Standing Committee of Urban Development meeting on 15th November. Pictures of Gautam Gambhir eating jalebi in Indore had gone viral on social media following which he was trolled.

Gambhir said if his eating jalebi has increased Delhi’s pollution, then he would give up eating jalebis forever. Everyone is serious about pollution except Aam Aadmi Party. Further attacking Kejriwal over toxic water in Delhi, Gambhir said, CM Kejriwal gave free water to Delhi, that too poisonous. “What has he done? He is the chairman of the board,” Gambhir hit out.

Last week, it was revealed that water quality in Delhi is the worst, failing in all the 19 parameters set by the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS). Delhi Government refuted the report claiming ‘bias’ in sample testing. BIS is the national standardisation body of India established by the Bureau of Indian Standards Act, 1986. BIS had collected 11 samples in Delhi, all of which failed in all 19 parameters set by the BIS for water quality. Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal is the chairman of Delhi Jal Board (DJB) since September 2017.
