Prashant Kishor meets Rahul, Priyanka

New Delhi, July 13 (UNI): Poll strategist Prashant Kishor met Rahul Gandhi here on Tuesday at the latter’s official residence, sources said.

Congress general secretary for eastern Uttar Pradesh Priyanka Gandhi, AICC general secretary KC Venugopal and former Uttarakhand chief minister Harish Rawat were also present during the meet.

The agenda of the meeting is not known yet, the sources said. Kishor was the poll strategist for Congress in Punjab Assembly elections in which the party bagged 77 of the total 117 seats.

As Punjab elections are around the corner, the Congress is worried about the tensions between Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh and cricketer-turned-politician Navjot Singh Sidhu.

Last month, Prashant Kishor has met Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) chief Sharad Pawar.

The NCP head later called a meeting of opposition parties and eminent persons at his official residence in the national capital to discuss the current situation in the country, raising speculations of a possible third front in 2024 Lok Sabha polls.

Kishor was hired by West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee for the Assembly polls in which Trinamool Congress defeated BJP, Congress and Left parties by a massive margin.
