“I do not want to continue what I am doing. I have done enough. Time for me to take a break and do something else in life. I want to quit this space,” Prashant Kishor told NDTV in an exclusive interview.
Trinamool Congress inches closer to a massive victory in Bengal, the man behind the party’s success, poll strategist Prashant Kishor has announced his retirement from election management.
In a recent Interview on NDTV he disclosed it first time saying I have been thinking of quitting for too long and was looking for an opportunity, Bengal gave me that chance.
When asked about his political ambition, he said, “Joining politics has always been on the radar, I have been there and failed, but I must go back and rethink what I must do better. However, he said, “I should hand over the baton to those who have been working with me, actual work has done by my colleagues and there is no better time than now to hand over the baton to someone.”
Prashant Kishor’s dramatic announcement came on a day he delivered on a dare back in December. “For all the hype AMPLIFIED by a section of supportive media, in reality BJP will struggle to CROSS DOUBLE DIGITS in #WestBengal PS: Please save this tweet and if BJP does any better I must quit this space!” he had tweeted on December 21.
Prashant said that he was always confident the Trinamool would do very well, more than people were willing to give it. “Mr Modi’s (Prime Minister Narendra Modi) popularity won’t mean BJP will win all elections,” the poll strategist added.
