Prashant Kishor meets UP Cong leaders; BJP mocks party
Poll strategist Prashant Kishor on Thursday held a marathon meeting with leaders and workers of Congress in a bid to galvanise the party for the 2017 state Assembly elections.
Ideas and suggestions were invited from state, district and city unit level office-bearers on ways to strengthen the party, whose vote share has fallen significantly, UP PCC chief Nirmal Khatri said.
Kishor was earlier roped in by Prime Minister Narendra Modi for his immensely successful 2014 Lok Sabha campaign and is said to have played a key role in the victory of JD(U)-RJD-Congress alliance in Bihar polls.
Khatri said the party would chalk out its strategy on the basis of ideas mooted during the meeting held in the presence of Kishor.
Meanwhile, BJP took a swipe at Congress for approaching Kishor to improve its performance in the 2017 Assembly elections.
