Aam Aadmi Party leader Atishi, the party’s candidate from East Delhi, has asked Gautam Gambhir why he decided to enter politics after he turned down her “open challenge” for a debate. “If you don’t believe in debates, then why have you entered politics? The Delhi government is going to start a cricket academy, why don’t you run that?” she asked him on Twitter after Gambhir told CNN-News18 that he does not believe in “dharna or debates”. 

The Supreme Court has pulled up Congress chief Rahul Gandhi for attributing the ‘Chowkidar Chor Hai’ remark to the court and said he is compelling the bench to take action against him for contempt. “We never said it.. You attributed the comment to us and now you are trying to justify it,” a bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi said.
