Prashant Kishor meets Rahul Gandhi amid Punjab crisis
Election strategist Prashant Kishor on Tuesday met senior Congress leader Rahul Gandhi in New Delhi, amid a crisis in the Punjab government involving Chief Minister Amarinder Singh and rebel leader Navjot Singh Sidhu.
According to a report by ndtv.com, the meeting is underway with the Punjab agenda on the cards, and Kishor, who has held a series of political meetings in the past few weeks, was seen arriving at Rahul Gandhi's home for the meeting.
Rahul had last collaborated with Kishor in the Congress's failed campaign for the Uttar Pradesh election in 2017.
Meanwhile, Prashant Kishor had last month met Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) supremo Sharad Pawar in New Delhi multiple times, fuelling speculations about the possibility of opposition parties coming together to form a third front against the BJP.
Kishor, who was instrumental in the thumping victory of the Trinamool Congress in the Bengal Assembly polls, had met Pawar over lunch at his residence in Mumbai on June 11. He again called on the NCP chief at his residence in Delhi on June 21 and 23.
