In a big setback to East Delhi BJP MP Gautam Gambhir just before the 2024 Lok Sabha Elections, the party has decided to deny him a ticket from his constituency. Gambhir failed to impress the party as an MP. The saffron party showed him the door after assessing his five-year term as an MP.  This comes a day after India TV broke the news of the BJP not planning to give the former cricketer a ticket from East Delhi in the upcoming Lok Sabha Elections.

India TV’s Political Editor Devendra Parashar said that Gautam Gambhir has been informed that his ticket has been cancelled. Even after being an MP for five years, no BJP leader was satisfied with his work.

After the ticket was canceled, Gautam Gambhir has expressed that he does not want to contest the elections and that he should be released. But due to his failure as an MP, his ticket has been cancelled.

In the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, cricketer Gautam Gambhir had contested on the Bharatiya Janata Party ticket. BJP made him its candidate in the elections from East Delhi Lok Sabha seat. After the elections, Gautam Gambhir also won this seat. He defeated Congress candidate Arvinder Singh Lovely by more than 3 lakh 91 thousand votes.
