ONE OF the senior-most members of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), despite being just 31 years of age, Durgesh Pathak on Monday became its latest leader to come under the cloud of a probe by Central investigation agencies.

Pathak appeared before the Enforcement Directorate for questioning, with AAP claiming this was in connection with the alleged liquor policy scam. Pathak is not named in the CBI FIR in the case, which includes among others Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia as accused.

Associated with Arvind Kejriwal since the India Against Corruption movement, Pathak has fronted many battles for AAP, mostly away from the limelight. He was the party’s co-convener in Delhi during the 2015 Assembly elections and co-in-charge for Punjab ahead of the 2017 Assembly polls. He is also a member of AAP’s highest decision-making body, the Political Affairs Committee.

While many believe the party has entrusted him with responsibilities way beyond his age and experience, AAP leaders say Pathak has rarely made them regret their faith in him as the youth face of the party. They cite his win in the high-stakes Rajinder Nagar Assembly seat bypoll in May, where he defeated the BJP’s Rajesh Bhatia by over 11,000 votes.

The Rajinder Nagar bypoll was necessitated because of sitting MLA Raghav Chadha moving to Parliament as a Rajya Sabha member from Punjab. With the seat largely comprising Punjabi refugees rehabilitated from Pakistan after Partition, fellow Punjabi Bhatia was thought to have an edge.
