Will PK become the saviour of Congress?

July 28 2021

Recently, in New Delhi, election strategist Prashant Kishor met Rahul Gandhi and introduced him to many of his innovative suggestions regarding the 2024 general elections. For example, PK told Rahul that there was a need to form not one but two separate fronts in the 2024 elections. PK’s request was that a Second Front should be formed under the leadership of the Congress, wherein, apart from the old allies of the UPA, the doors should also be opened for some new parties. In addition to the Congress, the parties that can join the second front can be parties like NCP, DMK, RJD, JMM, AIUDF, CPM and CPI. There are some parties that cannot join the UPA due to their regional compulsions, then they can bet on a third front that will take shape. These are regional parties, which do not accept the leadership of Congress, so the parties, which can choose the Third Front for themselves, may be parties like SP, Trinamool, Jagan’s YSR Congress and TRS. PK is said to have advised Rahul that in the 2024 Lok Sabha elections, the Congress need not field its candidates in bulk, instead, it will contest in winning states like Rajasthan, Punjab, Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Gujarat and North East and contest with the support of strong allies in the states of Bihar, UP, Jharkhand or South. In such a situation, even if their share of seats is less, the chances of winning will be much higher. Like in this election, DMK left just 8 seats for Congress, but Congress won all these seats.
