The man who is making headlines for strategising the poll campaigns of political leaders is Prashant Kishor. Taking to Twitter almost two months after he ensured a landslide vistory for Jagan Mohan Reddy's YSRCP in Andhra Pradesh in both the Lok Sabha and the assembly polls by completely decimating N Chandrababu Naidu, he took a dig at the buzz surrounding his association with political parties in India.
On July 22, he took to Twitter and said that the only way he gets to know where he is working is is through newspapers. Here is his tweet.
IN the latest scoop learnt by Republic Media Network, sources told that other person who has been advising Vadra behind the scenes is Prashant Kishor. Kishor, sources said, can't come out into the open because his party JDU is in an official alliance with the BJP, but the sources confirmed that he is also a critical part of the strategy.
In a big political development few days ago, sources also said that Uddhav Thackeray-led Shiv Sena hired Janata Dal (United) leader and poll strategist Prashant Kishor in order to claim the title of big brother in Maharashtra ahead of the Assembly election in the state scheduled to take place later this year. As per input, Prashant Kishor has already begun the campaign strategy for Shiv Sena for the assembly elections. While the Uddhav Thackeray joined hands with BJP-led NDA during the recently-concluded Lok Sabha polls, Prashant Kishor aims to reestablish Shiv Sena as the leading NDA ally, with the party looking forward to win more seats than BJP during the state assembly elections.
In midst of crucial political situations in the state of Bihar, where Prashant Kishor is the second number in teh lruling JD(U) of Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, Kishor joined the Mamata Banerjee's Trinamool bringing in a major twist. As JD(U) is officially a part of NDA alliance in Bihar and BJP forms the chief opposition to the ruling Trinamool in West Bengal, Kishor working for Mamata Banerjee only ensure a massive drama in upcoming West Bengal assembly elections. Meanwhile, the JD(U) clarified that Kishor's team has nothing to do with JD(U) and that he is in the party, also that whatever his team does is his profession.
Kishor whose team was an election strategist for YSRCP in Andhra Pradesh for the elections 2019, is known for his impressive strategy that leads parties to massive victories. In Andhra Pradesh, Chief Minister Jagan Mohan Reddy's YSRCP won 151 seats in the state's 175 seats. In the past, Kishor was the chief strategist for Prime Minister Modi's election campaign in 2014, after which he started his own company called IPAC that engineered the poll campaign in Punjab for Captain Amarinder Singh. In 2015, Kishor worked for the JD(U) when the party was a part of Mahagathbandhan in Bihar and led the grand alliance to their landslide victory in the assembly elections in Bihar. He has also worked for the Congress party in the assembly polls of Uttar Pradesh, however, BJP won the election. Prashant Kishor first hit headlines after helping PM Modi win 2012 Gujarat assembly election and become chief minister for the third time beating anti-incumbency.
