Congress Member or Main Strategist? All Eyes on Prashant Kishor’s Next Route After Meet With Party Brass
Election strategist Prashant Kishor is meeting with Congress president Sonia Gandhi and senior leaders Rahul Gandhi and K C Venugopal, amid speculation that he will join the party, which has recently faced a string of electoral defeats, sources said.
Top Congress leaders on Saturday met at the residence of party president Sonia Gandhi and are learnt to be discussing the current political situation. According to reports, poll strategist Prashant Kishore is also attending the meeting at Sonia Gandhi’s residence. There has been buzz of a slight possibility of Kishore joining the Congress, though sources close to the poll strategist have denied such an event.
The leader had recently resumed talks with the Gandhis about playing a role in resurrecting the Congress in the run-up to the 2024 general election. The two sides had previously disagreed following several rounds of teaming-up talks.
Reports mentioned sources as saying the Congress leaders are also discussing the party’s strategy for upcoming assembly polls in Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh and holding the party’s ‘Chintan Shivir’ in Rajasthan.
The brainstorming session is to be held later this month to work out the Congress’ strategy to strengthen the organisation at the grassroots level and suggest changes in the party.
Those attending the meeting include former party chief Rahul Gandhi, senior leader Mallikarjun Kharge, K C Venugopal, Ambika Soni, Ajay Maken and Priyanka Gandhi Vadra. Sources told CNN-Times of Nation that the meeting is significant as this is the first time Kishor is meeting top Congress brass. All eyes are now on the path Kishor will take, whether to be the Grand Old Party’s main strategist or a member.
Meanwhile, the G-23 is up against Rahul Gandhi and his team, even as the party’s interim chief Sonia Gandhi has been holding meetings with the dissidents to cull internal rift.
