Joining Different Parties Is Prashant Kishor’s ‘Business’: Taunts BJP’s Dilip Ghosh

New Delhi: Taking a sarcastic dig at Prashant Kishor amid speculations about him joining the Congress in the next few days, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MP Dilip Ghosh alleged the election strategist will very soon have a membership card of every party.

“He (Prashant Kishor) had joined Trinamool Congress (TMC) too. He was in Nitish Kumar’s party (JDU) also. It’s his business (joining parties),” Ghosh said.

“Whichever party he works for, gets its membership…He’ll have a membership card of every party, will show the card saying I’m from your party, give me order,” ANI quoted Ghosh as saying earlier on Thursday while referring to Kishor’s engagement as a poll strategist with different parties.

According to sources, Kishor will meet Congress interim president Sonia Gandhi later in the day.

This comes as the Congress leaders are stated to be still examining about 600 slides presented by Kishor for strengthening the organisation, ANI reported sources as saying.

The grand old party is by evaluating Kishor’s proposal gearing up for the 2024 general elections.

Congress national general secretary KC Venugopal had earlier said that Kishor had given a detailed presentation with a road map for the 2024 general elections.

Meanwhile, the Medinipur MP, who served as the state unit chief for six years, while responding to a poser about the BJP’s current leadership in West Bengal  termed his successor’s team as ‘new’ and ‘lacking organisational experience’ and suggested taking old-timers into confidence.

“The team that is working now (in West Bengal) is new and lacks organizational experience. The state chief (Sukanta Majumdar) is also new. It’s natural that it will take some time to learn politics,” said Ghosh.

“It’s taking time, which is why people are disappointed,” he added on being asked about his earlier comment that termed Majumdar ‘inexperienced’.

Asserting that a “decision should be taken soon”, Ghosh said the “workers who have worked for the party for a long time should also be allowed to contribute”.

“I believe then only everyone will be able to work together,” he added.

The voices among the BJP questioning the state party leadership increased after the party’s electoral debacle in the Ballygunge Assembly and Asansol Lok Sabha by-polls.
