Political strategist Prashant Kishor has tied up with West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee’s Trinamool Congress for 2021 state election, according to India Today. Prashant is known for his political victories. His last successful campaign was for Jagan Mohan Reddy-led YSR Congress in Andhra Pradesh.
According to India Today reports, Mamata Banerjee and Prashant Kishor held a two-hour long talk. As per reports, Kishor will start working with the West Bengal CM next month onwards.
Trinamool Congress is facing a challenging political situation since the Bharatiya Janata Party managed to expand its seat share in West Bengal from one in 2014 to 18 in recently concluded 2019 Lok Sabha elections. TMC wants to take Kishore’s assistance to augment its strategy to counter BJP ahead of 2021 state polls, sources have told India Today.
