Sandeep Pathak has been chosen to serve as the party’s first national general secretary (organisation). He is a low-key leader who avoids the spotlight. Sandeep Pathak has been chosen to serve as the Aam Aadmi Party’s (AAP) first national general secretary (organisation), five years after he joined the organisation and months after he was chosen as the party’s Rajya Sabha representative from Punjab.
After receiving 13% of the vote in the Gujarat Assembly elections, AAP is poised to become a national party. In Delhi, Punjab, Goa, and currently Gujarat, it has the standing of a state party. Ahead of the Delhi and Punjab Assembly elections, Pathak, an associate professor at IIT Delhi who focused his research on solar cells till 2020, became a full-time member of the AAP.
Pathak is a low-key leader who avoids the spotlight and has served as the AAP’s behind-the-scenes strategist for five years. Pathak’s position inside the party first came to light as a result of the party’s victory in Punjab. Before the elections, he spent nearly two years working in Punjab. There was severe internal conflict inside the governmental organisation. Working with dependable state officials, he completely reconstructed the organisation. He did it subtly as well. Few people had even heard of him until the party chose him for the Rajya Sabha, according to a senior party official.
Pathak, 43, is a close friend of party leader Arvind Kejriwal and is originally from Chhattisgarh. He has been involved in organising efforts in Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh, the two states that held elections, since after AAP achieved a resounding victory in Punjab.Prior to Gujarat’s election, he and Raghav Chadha, an AAP Rajya Sabha member, set up camp there for several months.
