Political Strategist and Janata Dal (United) leader Prashant Kishore who played a key role in bringing BJP in power took a dig at Hardeep Puri's statement that he doesn’t know who Prashant Kishor is. Prashant is known as the main force behind the most popular "chai pe charcha".

"Why would such a big leader know an ordinary man like me," Kishore said taking a dig at BJP leader.

"Hardeep Singh Puri-Ji is correct. He is a senior minister. Why will he know an ordinary man like me? (But) I know him because some of the works of his department are relevant in the Assembly elections in Delhi," he said.

"Why just the ministers? We also believe in having knowledge about booth in-charges from BJP. We believe in knowing their strengths and weaknesses. Our strategies (to fight elections) are different than theirs," Kishor added.

"In Delhi lakhs of people like me... from UP, Bihar... live and struggle to make a space for themselves in the city. If a big person like Hardeep Singh Puri will try to know about such a big number of people, it will go against his status, post, and dignity. It will not suit his status," Prashant said.

Talking at an event Hardeep Puri dismissed the news of Prasant worked as "a chap who used to work in UN" and said he and his party(BJP) will not get troubled by I-Pac working for AAP’s election campaign for the coming elections.
