AAP nominates IIT faculty

Former Indian cricketer Harbhajan Singh, AAP MLA Raghav Chadha and IIT Delhi faculty Sandeep Pathak are among the five candidates nominated by the Aam Aadmi Party from Punjab to Rajya Sabha.

It may be noted that elections to fill 13 Rajya Sabha seats across six states will be held on March 31.

Sandeep Pathak, a professor of Physics at the premier IIT (Indian Institute of Technology), has been strategising for AAP for years and laid the groundwork for its stupendous recent victory in Punjab. A PhD from Cambridge University, Pathak is said to be close to AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal and Bhagwant Mann.

Pathak has been working with the AAP for a few years, but has mostly remained behind the scenes. He camped in Punjab for nearly three years and formed an organization at the booth level.
