Prashant Kishor goes too personal against Jagan!

Prashant Kishor goes too personal against Jagan!

Popular political strategist and founder of Indian Political Action Committee (I-PAC) Prashant Kishor, who had helped the YSR Congress party led by Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy to come to power in Andhra Pradesh in 2019 elections, seems to have developed some kind of animosity towards Jagan.

While anyone can predict any number of seats for any party in the Monday’s elections, Prashant Kishor has virtually cursed Jagan, for reasons known only to him, stating that the YSRCP would come down from 151 seats to just 51.

“He is heading for a massive defeat,” he said, in an interview to V Ravi Prakash, founder-CEO of TV9 channel, presently running a digital channel – RTV.

He said Jagan had met him in Delhi one and a half years ago and he had told the chief minister that he was going to lose the elections.

“Obviously, he did not agree. He is of the opinion that he has no competition and he will get a minimum of 155 seats. I said it’s good if it happens,” he said.

Prashant accused Jagan of being ungrateful to him, despite he helping the YSRCP win the elections in 2019.

“It is unfortunate that Jagan is listening to the words of leaders like Sajjala Ramakrishna Reddy and Botsa Satyanarayana. It will prove costly for him,” he said.

Reacting to the allegation of the YSRCP leaders that he was sold out to Telugu Desam Party president N Chandrababu Naidu, the I-PAC founder sought to know whether Jagan’s sister Sharmila and mother Vijayamma were also sold out to Naidu.

“The fact that Sharmila has revolted against her own brother indicates that Jagan has let down many people, including his own family members, with his approach. When Jagan was in jail, Sharmila struggled day and night to bring him to power. I want to ask Botsa where he would have been, had I not helped the YSRCP in 2019,” he said.

Prashant Kishore said Jagan had made a series of mistakes, not just one. He became a provider and concentrated only on DBT.

“He treated himself like a King, not like a democratically elected leader. He completely ignored the aspirations of the people. Welfare without aspirations has got no meaning,” he said.
