Rahul Gandhi on Left, Prashant Kishore 2nd left, Priyanka Gandhi 2nd right and Sonia Gandhi to Right
The day after Prashant Kishore met with parliamentary leaders Sonia Gandhi, Rahul Gandhi, and Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, rumors arose about whether the electoral strategist would join India's largest opposition party.
According to sources, during the meeting, Gandhi and Prashant Kishore were able to explore the party's formal role as strategists preparing for important federal and state elections. The three Gandhi talked to Prashant Kishore at Rahul Gandhi's home on Tuesday. This is not the first time, according to sources.
Sources said the meeting was not held for the widely anticipated polls in Punjab or Uttar Pradesh, but "for bigger." This is a sign that Kishore is playing an important role in the preparations for the campaign that Congress is pursuing in 2024.
"I do not want to continue what I am doing. I have done enough. It is time for me to take a break and do something else in life. I want to quit this space", In an exclusive interview in May, Kishore told NDTV in an interview, the day after the state election results that led to major victories for his clients Mama Banerjee and Deputy Stalin in Bengal and Tamil Nadu.
On whether he would rejoin politics, he stated that: “I am a failed politician. I have to go back and see what I have to do.” On a lighter note, he talked about going with his family to Assam and “doing tea-gardening”.
But Mr. Previous advice from Kishore was also unhappy. In 2017, parliament sided with the Samajwadi Party in the elections in Uttar Pradesh, but the alliance failed and the BJP won. Mr. Kishore, who formulated parliament's strategy, found solace in the party's victory in Punjab. Since then, he has often criticized India's oldest political party and how it works.
"They are not open to working on the ways suggested by people like Prashant Kishor or others. They won’t be open to working with my style of functioning," he had mentioned, adding that the Congress “must realize that it has a problem and then do something about it”.
Mr. Kishor had also recommended that “the Congress must introspect where it is going wrong”.
