Gambhir Faces Flak

Netizens were quick to remind current MP from East Delhi, Gautam Gambhir, of his responsibilities. Twitterati were agitated with the fact that he was earning money by commentating on a game and not in his constituency working for the people. A Twitter user said, “1 Loksabha, 10 Vidhansabha, 40 Wards, hundreds of colonies,18,29,578 voters. But he chooses to enjoy in London & milk the money. How is Gautam Gambhir contributing to the country as an MP?”

His participation in the spectacle following his advice to boycott the match was also not appreciated by fans.
