Sharad Pawar and Prashant Kishor met at the NCP chief’s Silver Oak residence in Mumbai.
Prashant Kishor, who took a break from electoral strategy work after the West Bengal assembly elections, and Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) chief Sharad Pawar had a nearly 4-hour long meeting on Saturday. After this meeting held at Sharad Pawar’s Silver OK bungalow in Mumbai, the round of speculation has started again in Maharashtra.
The buzz is that Prashant Kishor may start his second innings as a strategist with the NCP. However, there is a discussion in the political corridor with Pawar making the face of the opposition along with the UPA president. After the Bengal elections, Pawar had called Mamta and congratulated her.
There is a discussion among the opposition parties about who will be the face of the opposition in front of PM Narendra Modi in 2024. Meanwhile, the meeting of Prashant Kishor and Pawar is considered important. This meeting is also being linked to Mamta’s strategy.
Let us tell you that Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut, who is running the government together with NCP and Congress in Maharashtra, had said a few days ago that talks would start for the formation of a coalition of opposition parties at the national level.
Ajit Pawar rejected the claim
Regarding the meeting between Prashant Kishor and Sharad Pawar, Deputy CM Ajit Pawar said in Pune, ‘Prashant Kishor has said that he will not participate in any election. They must have come to share some of their experiences with Pawar sahib or they will have some other work. He has now left the work of politics. So whatever is being discussed is baseless.
Ajit Pawar further said, ‘People from different areas come to meet Sharad Pawar.’ Asked whether this meeting is about the 2024 elections, Pawar said, “Prashant Kishor himself said that the Bengal election is his last.”
Ajit Pawar had arrived in Pune to inspect the police headquarters.
Prashant has joined them as a strategist.
Prashant Kishor has till now worked as an election strategist for the party of Narendra Modi, Jagan Mohan Reddy, Captain Amarinder Singh, Mamata Banerjee and Uddhav Thackeray.
