‘What A Knock’: Twitter Congratulates Gambhir After East Delhi Win

Gautam Gambhir has started his ‘innings’ in politics on a high after he decimated his opponents in East Delhi by securing almost 7 lakh votes in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections.

The former cricketer was up against Congress' Arvinder Singh Lovely and Aam Aadmi party's Atishi Marlena.

After the results were out, Gambhir took to Twitter to write that it is the ideology of the BJP that the people have supported.

“Neither it’s a ‘Lovely’ cover drive and nor it is an ‘आतिशी’ बल्लेबाज़ी। It’s just the BJP’s ‘गंभीर’ ideology which people have supported. Thanks a lot to all the @BJP4India and @BJP4Delhi team-mates for getting this mandate. We won’t fail people’s choice,” Gambhir tweeted.

Gambhir’s former teammates, players form the Indian Cricket fraternity and fans took to Twitter to congratulate the cricketer-turned-politician.

Gambhir is one of the most decorated cricketers in the history of Indian cricket. He was instrumental in the team lifting the 2011 World Cup trophy after a wait of 28 years.
