Slipper thrower threatens indefinite fast

Slipper thrower threatens indefinite fast

The youth Jeetendra Pathak shot off a letter to Anna Hazare seeking the his reply on three issues, including charges of corruption against Kiran Bedi, Prashant Bhushan’s remarks on Kashmir and the “anti-north Indian” attitude of Raj Thackerey and Bal Thackerey.

Pathak said here on Saturday that he had made it clear to Anna Hazare that if he did not receive a reply within seven days, he would embark upon an indefinite fast at the historic GPO Park in the state capital.

Pathak, in his letter, said that he had also been associated with Anna’s agitation at the Ramlila Ground at New Delhi a few months back but now he was feeling disappointed.

The youth, who had been detained after he had hurled slipper at Kejriwal, has not expressed any regret for the incident, though Kejriwal had announced at the meeting that he had forgiven him and had also sought his release.

Pathak had then accused the Team Anna of deviating from the main issue of corruption and instead “misguiding” the people of the country.

He was upset at Team Anna’s campaign against Congress at the recently concluded Hisar lok sabha by-polls, which the congress lost heavily.

It later turned out that Pathak had been briefly associated with the Congress party. He had also briefly worked with a BJP leader and a Samajwadi Party leader.
