Cricketer-turned-politician Gautam Gambhir has been heavily trolled on Twitter after fellow former cricketer VVS Laxman posted a photo of the two of them eating jalebis and poha in Madhya Pradesh's Indore this morning. Mr Gambhir, who was elected to the Delhi (East) seat in national polls earlier this year, had been summoned to a high-level parliamentary panel meet in Delhi today to discuss the air pollution crisis in the national capital. However, he opted to skip the meeting because he is currently in Indore to commentate on the India vs Bangladesh cricket match.
Mr Gambhir, who repeatedly sparred with the ruling Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) in Delhi, including Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, during his election campaign, was swiftly targeted by AAP leaders and other Twitter users, leading to #ShameOnGautamGambhir trending across the country.
The Aam Aadmi Party has posted multiple tweets criticising Mr Gambhir for skipping the meet.
Saurabh Bharadwaj, the AAP MLA from the Greater Kailash area in Delhi, also took to Twitter, reminding Mr Gambhir he had "7 days to eat Jalebi & poha" before returning to attend the meeting.
