Bharatiya Janata Party MP Gautam Gambhir has hit out at the opposition for criticising him for skipping a crucial meeting of a parliamentary standing committee to discuss the rising levels of air pollution in the national capital. The MP from East Delhi constituency said that opposition is making an issue over his commercial engagements to mask the incompetence and political greed of their leader.
“I have not entered politics to make money but I do have a family to support. Making my commercial engagements (which were entered into before I had become an MP) an issue to mask the incompetence and political greed of their leader, is the saddest thing that the party, which claims to represent honest people, could do,” he said in a statement.

He also talked about the efforts made by him for the betterment of his constituency and said that he should be judged on the basis of his work. “From getting high-end compost machines installed for clearing Ghazipur landfill to reforming EDMC schools by providing digital classes and infrastructure, installing sanitary pad vending machines for the benefit of women & providing free food to the poor, I have left no stone unturned in the past 6 months in making sure that people who voted for me get the best,” he added.
Gambhir said he is also in talks to install giant air purifiers with cutting edge technology, across the constituency which will substantially reduce pollution.

“But I have complete faith in the people of my constituency, my city and my country. They will judge me by my work and not by the propaganda and false narrative spread by the minions of the "honest CM" of Delhi,” the former cricketer said.
