Gone are the days when the political parties used to break their shells to make strategies to win the elections. Political strategists are the current phenomenon and they are deciding which party would win the elections. The trend had caught up since the 2014 Lok Sabha polls.

No one can deny the fact that Prashant Kishor played a big role in Bharatiya Janata Party's win in the 2014 Lok Sabha polls. Seeing his track record, many states roped in. He worked in Tamil Nadu, West Bengal, Andhra Pradesh, and others.

Looking at YSRCP's landslide win in the 2019 polls, Telugu Desam Party also roped in a political strategist. Robin Sharma, who earlier worked in Prashant Kishore's team was signed by the grand old Telugu Desam Party keeping the next general elections in mind.

However, many say that Robin Sharma failed to do a Prashant Kishore for the party. If we draw a comparison between Prashant Kishore and Robin Sharma, there is a sky and land difference. Prashant Kishore left his mark on social media before the polls and he carried out one or the other activity.

Indian Political Action Committee (I-PAC) steered the Jagan wave on social media. But there is no such movement in TDP under Robin Sharma's guidance. Even the TDP supporters cannot say what he had done for the party after he was roped in.

The two campaigns he started-Badude Badudu' programme and Idem Karma Mana Rashtraniki Programme could not increase the party's image. Usually, such programs get wide coverage. However, the programs did not get the coverage they anticipated.
