Unfortunately, there have been lots of controversies in recent times related to Durgesh Pathak. The man who loves to work behind the lime light has suddenly become a matter of discussion.

First, the Punjab unit of AAP has started to disintegrate. Some popular Sikhs leaders have left the party and their main point of allegation is Durgesh. Some of them alleged corruption and cash for ticket scam going on.

The lifestyle of Durgesh has also changed. When he joined IAC, he used to earn Rs. 15 K mainly through tuition classes. He had left Civil Services preparation. However, at this time, he is living in a posh locality of Delhi with the best in class interior furniture enhancing the look of his dwelling. He has no source of income then how come he is maintaining lavish lifestyles.

He is also criticized for saying that it was better he quit IAS preparation otherwise he would have become a corrupt person. Does he mean all IAS officers are corrupt? Or, he doesn’t have any faith on his own will power? What about his current lifestyle?
He is also blamed for asking for sexual favors in Punjab. Yogendra Yadav in a discussion on Aaj Tak tacitly said that sexual exploitation of Punjabi young girls are being done by Delhi based AAP leaders. He didn’t name Durgesh Pathak.
