Political strategist Prashant Kishor meets Sharad Pawar; sets off speculation | India News – Times of India


MUMBAI: Political strategist Prashant Kishor on Friday met NCP president Sharad Pawar at his residence here and held talks with him for nearly three hours, creating a flutter in political circles.
NCP sources said that besides discussing the current political situation, Pawar hosted a lunch for Kishor.
The meeting was over by around 2 pm, but neither Kishor nor Pawar spoke to the media persons gathered outside the ‘Silver Oak’ (the residence of the NCP chief).
This is Kishor’s first meeting with Pawar after the DMK and Trinamool Congress won the assembly elections in Tamil Nadu and West Bengal respectively. He had helped in preparing the electoral strategy for these parties in the assembly elections.
The election strategist said after the assembly election results that he was “leaving this place”.
Maharashtra Deputy Chief Minister Ajit Pawar downplayed the meeting, saying Kishor had already said that he would no longer be a political strategist.
Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut said several leaders were in touch with Kishor, while NCP’s Chhagan Bhujbal said he was not aware of the agenda of the meeting.
Describing Kishor as a successful political strategist, Bhujbal said he was confident that Pawar would consider Kishor’s suggestions.
Kishor had met Uddhav Thackeray in 2019 before becoming the chief minister.
