New Delhi. Electoral strategist Prashant Kishore is likely to join the Congress. Currently, there are formal and informal meetings in Congress on this issue. Meanwhile, party sources told News18 that an important meeting was held a few days ago in the presence of Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi. It sought the views of senior leaders on the possibility of including Prashant Kishore in the team. Sources said that senior leaders are not in favor of giving him special status if Prashant Kishore joins the Congress. The meeting was called by General Secretary Casey Benugopal.
Sources said the meeting revealed that senior leaders of the party believed that Prashant Kishore should work under the party system. All senior leaders are of the opinion that the skills of a calm teenager should be used as a team worker or partyman.
At the same time, senior leaders have no problem in forming a campaign committee or any department to utilize the skills of Prashant Kishore in conducting elections. Party sources further said that the news of Prashant Kishore being given a job as a political manager like Ahmed Patel is wrong.
According to News 18, the meeting was called by Casey Venugopal a few days ago. It was attended by Priyanka Gandhi, AK Antony, Jairam Ramesh, Digvijay Singh, Tariq Anwar.
On the other hand, Janmashtami was celebrated on August 0 at the house of senior Congress leader Kapil Sibal. This time, the leaders of the G-23 team also gathered at Sibal’s house. Among them are disgruntled Congress leaders Golam Nabi Azad, Anand Sharma, Manish Tiwari, Shashi Tharoor, Mukul Wasnik, Vivek Tankha and Bhupinder Singh Hooda.
The possibility of joining the Pacific Teen Congress at this time has also been considered. Some of these disgruntled Congress leaders are reportedly opposed to the idea of hiring Prashant Kishore. At the same time, it is being said that there is a possibility of adopting a wait-and-see strategy from the G-2 fa team. The informal meeting of the leaders comes a year after a letter was changed to Congress President Sonia Gandhi.
Some senior leaders are said to support the appointment of Prashant Kishore. They also attended the informal meeting online. A leader of the G-2 fa group told the media, “Of course there are serious concerns about the party’s outsourcing. It does not reflect well on the leadership because there are so many talented people in Congress. But it will not cause excitement because we have decided to adopt a wait-and-see policy.” He said the Congress Working Committee would decide on the matter, not the G-2 fa group.
