New Delhi: Launching an attack on BJP's East Delhi candidate Gautam Gambhir, Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia on Friday alleged that the cricketer-turned-politician is using a "duplicate" to campaign for him in order to avoid the heat.

In a Twitter post, the Aam Aadmi Party leader claimed that the doppleganger is a Congress leader named Gaurav Arora. Calling it a 'mahamilavat (adulteration)' of the BJP and Congress, Sisodia said while Gambhir is seated inside the air-conditioned car, people are garlanding his impersonator.

The development comes amid an ongoing tussle between the AAP and the BJP over a controversial pamphlet circulated against AAP's East Delhi candidate Atishi. On Thursday, Atishi had accused her opponent Gambhir of having distributed lakhs of pamphlets that questioned her morals and were full of objectionable and deeply offensive remarks about her.

Reading out the contents of the pamphlet, Atishi broke down twice at a press conference and expressed her pain. If men like him (Gambhir) get elected, how would any woman feel safe, she had asked.

Gambhir, who denied the allegation in strong terms and said he would quit politics if the charge is proven, sent a defamation notice through Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley's daughter Sonali Jaitley to Kejriwal, Sisodia and Atishi on Friday.

Delhi will go to polls on May 12, in the sixth phase of the Lok Sabha elections. The counting of votes will take place on May 23.
