Gambhir hits back at AAP’s allegation on voter IDs

New Delhi: Cricketer-turned-politician Gautam Gambhir on Sunday hit back at AAP’s Atishi Marlena over her allegations that he has two voter IDs, saying one makes such allegations to hide lack of vision and poor performance.

“When you do not have a vision and have done nothing in the last four and a half years, you make such allegations,” Gambhir said while campaigning for the East Delhi Lok Sabha seat.

Remarking that the Election Commission (EC) will take a decision on the issue, Gambhir said, “When you have a vision you don’t do such negative politics.”

Gambhir, fielded by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) by dropping sitting party MP Maheish Girri, is pitted against Aam Aadmi Party’s Marlena and Arvinder Singh Lovely of the Congress in a triangular contest.

The BJP had won all the seven Lok Sabha seats in the national capital in 2014.

Elections in Delhi are scheduled in the sixth phase on May 12. Counting of votes will take place on May 23.
