After advising YSRCP, Prashant Kishor to help TDP this time – Times of India


VIJAYAWADA: Election strategist Prashant Kishor is back in Andhra Pradesh politics. But this time he is with the TDP, if the developments on Saturday are any indication. Incidentally, he will be fighting his own former colleagues in I-PAC, which is currently engaged in advising the governing YSRCP.
Prashant arrived at Vijayawada airport on a chartered flight along with TDP national general secretary Nara Lokesh, and went to the residence of TDP president and former chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu at Undavalli.Prashant was closeted with Naidu for about three hours. TDP leaders Kilaru Rajesh and M Srikanth, and Show Time Consultancy director Santhanu Singh also accompanied Prashant on the flight to Vijayawada.

TDP sources said they discussed poll strategy for the ensuing state assembly and Lok Sabha elections. Prashant will work as TDP’s chief poll strategist, while Robin Sharma and Santhanu of Show Time Consultancy, who are already working for TDP, will take care of execution of the poll strategy devised by Prashant. The TDP leadership will hold another round of talks with Prashant and finalise the deal. A few I-PAC employees, who are currently engaged with YSRCP, are likely to switch over to the TDP camp to help Prashant, the sources added.

Prashant worked with the YSRCP in the 2014 and 2019 general elections, and helped it wrest power in 2019 by defeating TDP. He devised chief minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy’s campaign strategy and coined catchy slogans like “Annostunnadu (Anna is coming)” and “Nenu Vinnanu-Nenu Unnanu (I have heard your problems, I am there to help you)”.
