BJP leader and Lok Sabha MP Gautam Gambhir got trolled high time for flunking the high-level parliamentary panel meeting to discuss the severe air pollution in Delhi. Instead, the cricketer-turned-politician was seen enjoying in the leisure trip in Indore with his fellow cricketer VVS Laxman. Minutes after the former test magician VVS Laxman dropped a tweet with pictures of him hanging out with Gambhir at some local eatery in Indore, the Internet broke out with trolls and memes. Reportedly, Gambhir is currently in Indore as a commentator for India vs Bangladesh cricket match.

Within no time the hashtag #ShameOnGautamGambhir started trending. However, the meeting of the Parliamentary Standing Committee had to be cancelled at the last minute as only four MPs, out of the 29 on the list, and a few other officials turned up for the meeting. On this note, Aam Aadmi Party who got ridiculed by Gambhir for neglecting the Delhi pollution.
Instead of sitting in commentary box and enjoying…
We challenge @GautamGambhir to stop playing blame games over pollution and ATTEND MEETINGS ON AIR POLLUTION which he skipped
