After Mamata Banerjee, Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) chief Arvind Kejriwal roped in the leading election strategist Prashant Kishor’s political consultancy firm I-PAC aiming to retain his throne of Chief Minister in Delhi for a second consecutive term.
Assembly elections in Delhi will be held in February 2020 to elect 70 members. The term of current assembly elected in 2015 will expire on 22 February 2020.
Why is Prashant Kishor in demand?
Kishor is the one who formulated political strategies for Narendra Modi during Lok Sabha elections in 2014. Strategized campaigns for JD(U) in Bihar in 2015 assembly polls and for Congress during Punjab polls in 2017 and eventually led them to victory. He is also the one who chalked out political strategy for YSRCP’s Jagan Mohan Reddy in Andhra Pradesh this year.
