Prashant Kishor’s Presentation Is Quite Impressive, Though Nothing New, Says Former CM Digvijaya Singh

Will the renowned poll strategist Prashant Kishor join the grand old party? This question has been trending in the social, national as well as the print media for the last one month since the Congress party faced a humiliating defeat in UP, Uttarakhand, Punjab, Manipur and Goa assembly elections. 

Amidst the frequent meetings of PK with the Congress high command, now former CM of Madhya Pradesh and Rajyasabha MP Digvijaya Singh has told in an interview given to NDTV, that the presentation which Prashant Kishor has given, is quite impressive, though there is nothing we didn’t know. “There is no internal resistance on him joining the grand old party”, he further added.

Describing Prashant Kishor’s analysis of the Congress’s decline and his roadmap for the party’s revival as impressive, Digvijaya Singh said: “He is a statistics man. There is nothing very new, nothing that we did not know. There is no resistance to his suggestions. The only question is of how you present an issue and how the party picks up those issues.”

Digvijaya Singh is seen to be one of the Congress leaders who have reservations about giving Prashant Kishor a party post. Mr Singh is also a part of the committee formed to look after PK’s suggestions and report the Congress high command on the same.

When asked about his terms with Prashant Kishor, he said “I have had a very close association with him. I have had intense interactions with him. He is a political analyst. His journey has been from one party to the other. The kind of political commitment or the ideological commitment is not obvious. But now that he has come forward with concrete suggestions and the presentation he has put up is quite good”.

Recently, describing Prashant Kishor as a brand with proven credentials, Congress general secretary Tariq Anwar on said that PK is willing to join the party without any preconditions and his induction would certainly help the party.

“Congress president Sonia Gandhi, Anwar said, wants to take senior leaders into confidence and seek their opinion on whether Kishor’s entry into the party will be beneficial or not and then take a decision on the much speculated matter”, he further added.

With PK’s upcoming entry in the grand old party and a series of meetings at 10 Janpath, the political temperature of the national capital has risen up.
