Politics makes strange bed - fellows. The man you slammed yesterday could be your only hope today. Chandrababu Naidu seems to have discovered that the hard way. During his reign as the Chief Minister, he battered poll wizard Prashant Kishore right left and centre. He termed him a Bihari dacoit. He said poll pundits have no understanding of the Telugu political realities.
But, one massive defeat later, Chandrababu seems to have a realisation. After all, people like Prashant Kishore can help the party win the elections. If the rumours floating around are to be believed, Chandrababu now wants to requisition the services of Prashant Kishore for 2024 elections. Elections are a good five years away and Prashant Kishore will be busy for the coming two years with Mamta Didi's re-election. Only after that he would be able to devote time to Andhra Pradesh. Yet, Chandrababu wants him.
He has now realised that Prashant Kishore played no mean part in strategising, planning and agenda setting. His tactics gave tail-wind to Jagan's hard work and turned it into a wave of massive support. Now, Chandrababu wants Prashant Kishore to perform the same magic for him. But, Prashant had his failures. He failed in UP for the Congress.
