Trinamool’s main objective is to defeat the BJP, party spokesman Kunal Ghosh has said, while Prashant Kishor, whose company I-PAC works with Trinamool, is likely to join the Congress.
While political strategist Prashant Kishor is reportedly ready to join the Congress, Trinamool Congress General Secretary Kunal Ghosh said that Prashant Kishor had never joined the TMC and as a political strategist he could talk to any political party. “Kishor is a political strategist. He is not a leader of the TMC. He can talk to any political party. We know Congress has a history of failure. If Congress wants to revive, it can try Our main goal (TMC) is to defeat the BJP,” Kunal Ghosh told ANI news agency.
“Like in Bengal, the TMC is strong. So in other states, if the Congress thinks they can fight and defeat the BJP, they are welcome,” Kunal Ghosh added.
Several high-level meetings have been held in the Congress over Prashant Kishor’s joining the party and it is now believed that Kishor’s joining the Congress is only a matter of time. The political strategist, who has crafted several successful election campaigns, has already made some recommendations for transforming Congress. A committee appointed by Congress President Sonia Gandhi reviewed these recommendations and submitted its report. At least two leaders, AK Antony and Digvijaya Singh told Gandhi that Kishor’s advice is welcome and should be used, but that he should not be appointed as a bureaucrat or senior party official as it would “create chaos in the ranks, HT reported earlier.
Prashant Kishor has reportedly suggested that Congress focus on 365-370 Lok Sabha seats in the 2024 elections and stand alone in assembly polls in states where it is first or second.
