A Delhi Court, on Monday, reserved its order in connection with a complaint filed by AAP East Delhi Candidate Atishi against BJP nominee Gautam Gambhir over alleged possession of dual voter ID cards. Delhi’s Tiz Hazari court said that it will pass an order on May 13, a day after polling in the national capital.
The Delhi Court on Wednesday last week told Aam Aadmi Party‘s East Delhi candidate Atishi to give more proofs and documents to support her claim about BJP Nominee Gautam Gambhir for allegedly possessing dual voter ID Cards.
Metropolitan Magistrate Viplav Dabas hearing the plea asked Atishi, “How you are affected by this? If he has committed any wrong, what’s your locus?”

The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) accused Gautam Gambhir of having two voter ID Cards. Aam Aadmi Party Candidate from Delhi East Lok Sabha Seat Atishi took to Twitter and slammed Gambhir of having two voter ID Cards. She also moved to Delhi’s Tiz Hazari Court seeking disqualification of cricketer-turned-politician.
AAP alleged that Gambhir possesses two voter ID Cards – one from Karol Bagh and one from Rajendra Nagar. Atishi had last week filed a criminal complaint in the trial court against cricketer & BJP candidate Gautam Gambhir on the issue.
However, Gautam Gambhir dismissed the allegations levelled by AAP of having two voter ID cards. “I have only one voter-ID, from Rajendra Nagar. I don’t have any other voter-ID,” Gautam Gambhir had said following the allegations.
Gautam Gambhir in a run-up to the national elections in pitched against AAP’s Atishi, while Congress has named Arvinder Singh Lovely for the East Delhi Lok Sabha Seat. BJP East Delhi Sitting MP Mahesh Giri has been replaced with Gambhir for the mega polls 2019.
General Elections 2019 has already begun and is being held in seven phases starting from April 11 to May 19. All Seven Parliamentary Seats of the national capital will vote on May 12, the sixth phase of polling.
