The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Member of Parliament (MP) from Delhi and Indian Cricketer, Gautam Gambhir, came out to clarify over his absence in the crucial Parliamentary Standing Committee (PSC) meeting held on Friday. Gambhir said that his people know his work and that they will judge him based on his work. “I have complete faith in the people of my constituency, my city and my country. They will judge me by my work,” read the statement issued by Gambhir through his twitter handle.
My work will speak for itself!

He further added that those “minions” of Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal of Delhi should not judge him due to his absence in the PSC meeting. “They (the people of his constituency, city and country) will judge me by my work and not by the propaganda and false narrative spread by the minions of the “honest CM” of Delhi,” Gambhir added slamming Aam Admi Party (AAP). Gambhir was writing this statement purportedly for AAP’s Atishi Marlena who had made a sling shot at Gambhir, on Friday, for remaining absent in the PSC meeting in the morning.
“A week is a long time in politics, but not for Gautam Gambhir who clearly needs more time to get out of his primary commitment — cricket,” she started in her tweet against BJP MP Gautam Gambhir. She further quipped at Gambhir for missing the crucial meet on air pollution problem in Delhi. “He was notified of the Committee on Urban Devt meet on air pollution exactly one week ago. Very unfortunate that Hon MP couldn’t make time,” quipped Marlena on Gambhir through her tweet.
