Modi Man To Help Telangana Cong Revival?

Modi Man To Help Telangana Cong Revival?

If the reports from the Congress camp in New Delhi are to be believed, popular political strategist Prashant Kishore, who was the right-hand of Prime Minister Narendra Modi in designing his poll campaign in 2014, will take up the responsibility of reviving the Telangana Congress party and strengthening it to take on the Telangana Rashtra Samithi in 2019 elections.

According to party sources, the Congress high command has asked 40-year old Kishor to breathe new life into the party in Telangana, so as to make it strong by 2019.

He will tour extensively in all parts of Telangana to identify right candidates for the Congress, study the programmes being implemented by the TRS government, identify the issues that could be championed by the Congress in the next elections and finalise its campaign strategy.

Sources said he is learnt to have asked the party to provide a contingent of 3,000 strong and young Congress workers who would help him study the ground situation.

Kishor was the brain behind Modi’s success in 2014 and designed several innovative slogans for him. However, after 2014, he took up the task of bringing the Nitish Kumar government back into power in Bihar and launched a counter-strategy to take on BJP.

At present, he has been entrusted with the Congress campaign in the Uttar Pradesh elections to be held in early 2017. Later, he will focus on Telangana Congress, say sources.
