Of course , there was areason why he had waled nito the Congress office. “ “Modi government has failed to keep its words, so I have decided to campaign against the BJP,” he said.
“I wrote about 50 letters to the Prime minister. People curse me and beat me, they are so irritated,” he said complainingly.
Disappointed with the BJP, Pathak, a native of Saharnpur, now wants to campaign for the congress and has sought an appointment with Congress president Rahul Gandhi.
