Prashant Kishor is a renowned election strategist and has been in this field for about 8 to 9 years. It has been a tough job for him throughout these years and endeavoured a lot. He has been the mastermind behind the exceptional performance of Trinamool Congress’s win in the West Bengal Elections 2021.
Prashant was also the political strategist for Muthuvel Karunanidhi Stalin’s Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) and ensured his win in this year’s election. However, after announcing that he is quitting, he wished to pursue something else. Moreover, in an interview, he mentioned that he is a failed politician and wants to go back and see what he has done.
He grinned with satisfaction as the Election Commission was partial and made his campaign quite difficult. He was confident that Trinamool would perform well in the elections, and that BJP’s popularity won’t provide them all the votes to win the elections.
Considering the unprecedented religious polarisation, this election was a bit more challenging to him than the others. He stated that in his years of experience, he has never witnessed such religious polarisation across Bengal. Furthermore, according to him, Mamata Banerjee’s way of connecting with the people was widely underestimated. Prashant Kishor’s past experiences also include Nitish Kumar’s win in 2015 and BJP’s campaign in 2014.
