Poll strategist Prashant Kishor met former Congress president Rahul Gandhi at the latter’s official residence in New Delhi on Tuesday. According to sources, the meeting could result in a major decision over the party’s strategy in Punjab ahead of the assembly elections due next year.
The meeting on Tuesday, which lasted for nearly two hours, was also attended by Congress national general secretaries Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, KC Venugopal, and Harish Rawat. Harish Rawat is the party’s in-charge for Punjab and Prashant Kishor is Punjab CM Amarinder Singh’s political advisor.
Interestingly, Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra was supposed to leave for a visit to Lucknow on Tuesday which has now been postponed.
This meeting between senior Congress leaders and Prashant Kishor comes at a time when the party is working out a strategy to accommodate both CM Amarinder Singh and MP Navjot Singh Sidhu.
