Nation First News: While the BJP has gone aggressive to capture power in West Bengal in 2021 after a spectacular show in 2019 Lok Sabha elections, Bengal CM & TMC Chief Mamata Banerjee has roped in renowned Poll Strategist Prashant Kishor.
Mamata held a two-hour meeting with Prashant Kishor in the presence of her nephew and Lok Sabha MP Abhishek Banerjee. Prashant reportedly agreed to work with Mamata Banerjee and help her party strategise the campaign.
Interestingly, Prashant Kishor is currently one of the Vice Presidents of JD(U), which is reportedly upset with the BJP over the Cabinet formation. JD(U) recently rejected the BJP offer and decided not to join the Modi 2.0 Cabinet. Also, there was a public spat between Union Minister Giriraj Singh & JD(U) leaders following the the former’s dig at Nitish Kumar over Iftar photos.
