New Delhi: Election strategist Prashant Kishore today met former Congress national president Rahul Gandhi at his residence. The meeting between the two continues. According to sources, Priyanka Gandhi, KC Venugopal, and Punjab in-charge Harish Rawat are also present at the meeting. There is speculation that Prashant Kishore will brainstorm on Punjab during a meeting with Lok Sabha MP from Wayanad in Kerala Rahul Gandhi.
A few months ago, Punjab CM Captain Amarinder Singh appointed PK as his principal advisor and Kishore then held meetings with MLAs and officials. Last month, Prashant Kishore met Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) National President Sharad Pawar thrice. The meetings with Sharad Pawar had fuelled speculation that opposition parties would come together to form a third front against the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).
Let me tell you that Prashant Kishore has played a key role in the victory of the Trinamool Congress (TMC) in the West Bengal assembly elections and the DMK alliance in Tamil Nadu. The Congress now wants Prashant Kishore to salvage his sinking fortune.
