Prashant Kishor’s Final Meeting At 10 Janpath Today

For a last few days, there have been speculations of renowned political strategist Prashant Kishor joining the grand old party, and the final meeting of PK and Congress high command is expected to be held anytime today. Amidst this political bustle, as per the media reports, PK has met TRS chief and Telangana CM K Chandrashekhar Rao yesterday. 

As per the internal sources of the Congress party, the top brass has discussed the pros and cons of roping in PK and what role he can be given if he is taken on board. While there has been no official announcement so far, there are indications that the party has reached a decision. 

Apart from the Congress national chief Sonia Gandhi, members of the seven-member committee that submitted a report to her on PK’s proposal met at 10 Janpath this morning. The committee is headed by former Union Minister P Chidambaram and senior leaders K C Venugopal, Mukul Wasnik, Ambika Soni, Jairam Ramesh, Digvijaya Singh and Randeep Singh Surjewala.

Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra and senior leader A K Antony also attended the meeting that lasted over two hours.  

So far, PK has had three meetings with the Congress leadership during which he gave detailed presentations on his plan to rejuvenate the grand old party. 

Meanwhile there are some leaders who doesn’t seem much happy if PK joins the grand old party. Such voices are likely to get stronger following Mr Kishor’s two-day stay with Telangana CM K Chandrashekar Rao and the Telangana Rashtra Samithi’s contract with political consultancy firm I-PAC for the 2023 state polls.

While PK has officially ended his relations with his former organization I-PAC, he is said to be privy to all the decisions of the organisation which he earlier led.

Telangana CM K Chandrashekhar Rao’s party is in direct contest with the Congress in the Telangana and therefore PK’s weekend stay at Hyderabad is likely to weigh heavily on the Congress meeting today.
