Meeting between Prashant Kishor, Sharad Pawar lasts three hours; agenda unknown
Political strategist Prashant Kishor who had worked with BJP, INC, AAP DMK & recently with TMC today met NCP chief Sharad Pawar in Mumbai. This meeting lasted almost for 3 hours. There is talk that the meeting between two happened to discuss how to get all parties together against BJP. But neither Sharad Pawar nor Prashant Kishor confirmed the agenda of the meeting.Prashant Kishor first came into the lam-light during the 2014 Loksabha elections when he worked for BJP as a strategist. Recently he worked with TMC and helped Mamata win the battle of Bengal against the BJP. Though Mamata was the face of this election, it is said that Prashant Kishor gave that boost to part leadership that a regional party can defeat the powerful forces of BJP. There is talk in the political circle that Kishore is roaming in India and meeting non BJP supporting parties and trying to get them on one floor. Today’s meeting with Sharad Pawar is seen as part of this.Kishor met Pawar today at 11 am and a meeting between both ended at approximately 2 pm. According to sources, the duo had a detailed chat about the present political scenario in the country. Sources also suggest that in the national capital, as Congress is losing its reputation at the national level due to its performance in Loksabha elections and various assembly elections now there is a need that other regional parties should come together and fight against BJP. In Maharashtra, Sharad Pawar had formed such an alliance with help of Shiv Sena & Congress. Pawar’s connection in the national & regional political circle is very well known thus Kishor had come to meet Pawar. Also, there are reports that Prashant Kishore wants Sharad Pawar to lead this front of all regional parties at the National level & face the 2022 State Assembly elections of four states including UP.A recent meeting between PM Modi and Maharashtra CM Uddhav Thackeray had raised many eyebrows and in the political circle, a lot of talks were going on, which Sharad Pawar ended by saying that MVA will not only complete its term but also will fight the next general & assembly elections together. But due to the meeting between Pawar & Prashant Kishor now the new discussion is happening at the national level and many are trying to find out the motive of this meeting.
