New Delhi : Cricketer-turned-politician Gautam Gambhir was recently targeted by the Aam Aadmi Party leaders for allegedly skipping a meeting in Delhi on Air Pollution. He was slammed for enjoying 'jalebi' during a cricket game while the national capital was choking due to poor air quality.

In his defence, Gautam Gambhir has issued a statement over the 'jalebi' pictures posted by his cricket colleague VVS Laxman. He spoke to the news agency ANI and said, "Agar mera jalebi khane se Delhi ka pollution badha hai, toh main hamesha ke liye jalebi chhod sakta hoon...10 minute mein mujhe troll karna shuru kar diya, agar itni mehnat Delhi ki pollution ko kam karne mein ki hoti toh hum saas le pate." (If my eating jalebis has caused pollution in Delhi, I will stop eating jalebis forever. You started trolling me in 10 minutes. Had you worked this hard on checking pollution in Delhi, we would be breathing better air today.)

Gautam Gambhir also took a jibe at the Aam Aadmi Party over Delhi's water woes. In a tweet, he tagged Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and posted a question – "Jal or Jalebi? (Water or Jalebi?).

The Aam Aadmi Party leaders had trolled Gautam Gambhir for missing the key Parliamentary Panel meet to discuss the air pollution and enjoying the dessert at another function apparently at the same time.
