Amidst the heat of allegations of derogatory language employed in pamphlets against former cricketer and BJP candidate Gautam Gambhir, the left-hand batsman’s ex-teammates have jumped to his defense.
The election season in India has been in full flow, and this has also led to different controversies emerging. Gambhir was the center of the latest political dispute, after his rival claimed he had directed his workers to distribute pamphlets containing disparaging sexist remarks.
In the thick of things, Gambhir has found support from the likes of Harbhajan Singh, Irfan Pathan and VVS Laxman, who have vouched for the honest character of the former opener. They believe that Gambhir could never resort to such cheap tactics to win an election.
