New Delhi: The Aam Admi Party has accused BJP's East Delhi candidate Gautam Gambhir of holding two voter IDs and has filed a criminal complaint against him in Tis Hazari Court over the issue.

AAP East Delhi candidate Atishi termed it criminal and has called for his "immediate disqualification".

"We have filed a criminal complaint in Tis Hazari Court against Gambhir," she said. She alleged that the cricketer-turned-politician has two voter IDs of Rajendra Nagar and Karol Bagh, and he faces upto one year in prison for this offence.

The court will hear the matter on May 1.

Delhi chief minister and AAP convenor Arvind Kejriwal took to Twitter and said, "Voters shud not waste their vote on someone who will get disqualified soon (sic)."

"Will the Election Commission remain silent? How can a person with two voter IDs contest polls?," AAP leader Sanjay Singh said in a tweet.

However, Gambhir has denied the allegations and accused the AAP of making baseless claims. "First they makes allegations, then go to court and then they apologise," cricketer-turned-politician said.
