Is ace poll spin doctor Prashant Kishore joining the Congress Party? Is there an agreement between Prashant Kishore and the Congress Party? Is he being appointed the general secretary of the AICC in the bargain? The national capital is agog with this buzz.
For the past several months, PK has been going around the non-BJP political parties with a formula to defeat the BJP. His two-step strategy involves defeating the BjP's candidate for the elections to the post of the president first and then defeating PM MOdi in 2024. He has met leaders like Mamta Banerjee, Stalin, Sharad Pawar and others. Later, he also met the Congress triumvirate Sonia Gandhi, Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi. Sources say that he has presented his plan of action to them.
As part of the plan, he is said to have demanded a key position in the party. Accordingly, Priyanka Gandhi, has reportedly taken the initiative to forge an alliance with PK, has offered him the post of national general secretary. In the Congress party, national general secretary is a key position. Both Rahul Gandhi and his father Rajiv Gandhi held this post before becoming the Congress president.
The Congress has been facing a rough patch in its journey. It has lost election after election and the youth have moved away from the party. The party has just about 50 seats in Parliament. PK will activate the party cadres, hold discussions with other regional parties to forge anti-Modi alliance, devise electoral strategies for the coming elections and prepare the party for the 2024 mother of all polls.
