Gautam Gambhir says Delhi needs honesty after Arvind Kejriwal requested him to contribute PPE kits

Cricketer-turned-politician Gautam Gambhir, who is surprised by the Delhi government’s contradictory stand, has said that the capital of the country needs honesty after Arvind Kejriwal does not need money, but the PPE kits.

Gautam Gambhir claimed on Monday that he was ready to donate Rs 50 lakh to Delhi, but CM Arvind Kejriwal was not ready to accept it due to his ego problems. But when Manish Sisodia told that the government is short of funds, the BJP leader came forward to contribute Rs 1 crore and he requested the CM to use the amount to buy the masks and PPE kits.

The former cricketer tweeted on April 6, “CM @ArvindKejriwal & his Dy say funds are needed. Though their massive egos didn’t allow them to take 50 L from my LAD fund earlier, I pledge 50 L more so that innocents don’t suffer! 1 CR would at least solve urgent need for masks & PPE kits for days Hope they prioritize Delhi.”

In reply, Arvind Kejriwal said that his government has enough of funds, but it is need of PPE kits. The Chief Minister tweeted, “Gautam ji, thank u for ur offer. The problem is not of money but the availability of PPE kits. We wud be grateful if u cud help us get them from somewhere immediately, Del govt will buy them. Thank u.”

In response to the CM, Gautam Gambhir tweeted, “Arvind ji, first ur Deputy claims a shortage of funds. Now u contradict him & say there is a shortage of kits Anyway, procured 1000 PPE kits. Please let me know where they can be delivered. Time for talks is over, it is time to ACT. Eagerly waiting for ur response #DelhiNeedsHonesty.”
