Gautam Gambhir and his jalebis have been trending on social media for quite some time.
Speaking in his defence on the entire jalebi controversy, Gambhir was visibly upset and had claimed that he will quit jalebis, if doing so will reduce Delhi's pollution.
#WATCH: Gautam Gambhir, BJP MP says."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." pic.twitter.com/K2oW5qokht— ANI (@ANI) November 18, 2019
Twitterati, which was already buzzing with a lot of gambhir situations, was seen mocking the politician turned cricketer.
@GautamGambhir dude, the problem is not that you are eating jalebis. The problem is that you are eating it instead of attending the pollution control meetings 🤦♂️🤦♂️— Sahil Dev (@dev_sahil_) November 18, 2019
At least get the problem.#ShameOnGautamGambhirhttps://t.co/hsRkwDVwRL
He did it. He did what he was elected for. A promise to quit jalebi forever. Finally an elected person we can all look upto. Waiting for the day when you quit barfi too @GautamGambhir #CongratsEastDelhi https://t.co/M48z7zVPrk— ajay poonia (@pooniajay) November 18, 2019

Clearly, netizens weren't impressed with Gambhir lashing out on the journalist and want him to focus on better and more important things in Delhi.
