EXCITEMENT IN CM CAMP OVER AMARINDER-KISHOR MEETING

EXCITEMENT IN CM CAMP OVER AMARINDER-KISHOR MEETING

After a meeting with Congress president Sonia Gandhi to finalise a roadmap for the 2022 assembly elections, Punjab Chief Minister Capt. Amarinder Singh on Wednesday met political strategist Prashant Kishor at Kapurthala House, the CM’s residence in Delhi. The CM camp was elated at the meeting, which took place amid a feud between Amarinder and Congress leader Navjot Singh Sidhu and a banner of revolt raised by several other party leaders. A few leaders, considered close to Amarinder, said Kishor’s apparent interest in Punjab was enough to give his camp a new lease of life after the party was hit by a damaging internal crisis. Kishor had successfully stitched together Amarinder’s 2017 election campaign and the latter has been keen on roping him in for a repeat performance. However, after his decision to quit the vocation of poll strategizing following the West Bengal elections, Kishor has not clarified on his Punjab plan as yet. He was earlier appointed the principal adviser to the CM and had held preliminary meetings with officials on pending poll promises. Meanwhile, there have been reports that Kishor’s team had been conducting surveys to gauge the party’s prospects.
