Well-known political strategist Prashant Kishor, who is believed to have played crucial role in YS Jagan's victory in AP, is likely to work for West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee. As per sources, Didi said to have evinced her interest to team up with Prashant Kishor after BJP bagged 19 MP seats in West Bengal while TMC got little higher i.e 22 MP seats. The rise of BJP from 2 MP seats to 19 MP seats in West Bengal said to have worried Mamata and she has decided to rope in Prashant Kishor for upcoming Assembly election 2021.
It is learnt that an agreement has been signed between Mamata Banerjee and Prashant Kishor regarding 2021 West Bengal election. Mamata and PK had a two-hour-long meet and soon after the meet, the agreement has been signed. PK's close confidante Abhishek Banerjee was accompanying him during the meet. It is said that PK will start working in West Bengal from next month on wards.
Prashant Kishor, who was behind Modi's storming victory in 2014 Lok Sabha polls, had also played significant role in 2015 polls in Bihar where Nitish Kumar's JD(U) came to power. PK's successful campaign for YS Jagan in AP where YSRCP swept 151 Assembly seats out of 175 seats and 22 MP seats out of 25 MP seats in a simultaneous poll has won the acclaim. Given his track record, PK has now become hot choice for the political leaders.
