New Delhi: Prashant Kishore has said that now he wants to do something else, leaving the job of electoral strategy. It is worth mentioning that Prashant Kishore served as a strategist for the TMC in the West Bengal Assembly elections and for the DMK in association with MK Stalin in Tamil Nadu.
Prashant Kishor also targeted election commission alleging it has been working like extension of BJP. “From allowing use of religion by BJP to scheduling poll and bending rules, EC did everything to aid saffron party,” Kishor said.
“Never seen a more partial Election Commission, it did everything to help BJP,” he added.
The ruling Trinamool Congress looks set to retain power in West Bengal with its candidates leading in 202 of the state’s 292 seats that went to poll
against the BJP’s 79, as trends were available for 286 seats.
Chief Minister and TMC supremo Mamata Banerjee was, however, trailing her former protege-turned-BJP rival Suvendu Adhikari in Nandigram by over 8,000 votes.
Belying expectations of a tight contest, the TMC candidates appeared galloping to victory, and, if the current trends hold, the party will easily form its third successive government in the state.
