New Delhi: Congress has closed the chapter of Prashant Kishor. It was being discussed for several days that talks are going on between election strategist Prashant Kishor and Congress and he may join Congress soon. However, after many discussions, things did not work out after Prashant Kishor. Prashant Kishor wanted a bigger position for himself in the Congress, like Ahmed Patel used to be. Along with many suggestions were given on which the Congress high command did not agree. It is being said that Rahul Gandhi’s indifference also played an important role in spoiling Prashant Kishor’s game.
Actually, Rahul Gandhi had distanced himself from Prashant Kishor’s presentation. While Rahul Gandhi kept a distance from Prashant Kishor’s meetings with the high command, he went on a foreign tour at the last moment. Prashant Kishor felt that the Congress party is hardly ready to change the leadership.
Rahul Gandhi has a good hold in the party and his distance from Prashant Kishor has created suspicion among the leaders and Prashant Kishor himself. Talking to the media, Congress spokesperson Pawan Khera said, ‘We are a party and we are in the process to change that. We are certainly ready to make changes to meet the expectations of Congress workers and leaders.
PK sources say that they feel that the Congress leadership is not ready to implement their suggestions. Apart from this, Rahul Gandhi is not showing any interest in this. The PK Congress on Tuesday said that it is more important than them that the Congress leadership should have the will to overcome the structural problems that have plagued the country’s oldest party.
People associated with PK say that they expected Rahul Gandhi’s support, but he remained aloof. Although Priyanka Gandhi showed full enthusiasm and attended every meeting. Apart from this, Sonia Gandhi also showed full interest and also presided over every meeting. But Congress is still dominated by Rahul Gandhi’s team and it did not seem too enthusiastic about Prashant Kishor’s suggestions. Due to this, a situation of suspicion arose in Prashant Kishor.
Sources said Rahul Gandhi’s alleged separation was contrary to the enthusiasm of his sister Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, but it was not enough. Congress President Sonia Gandhi was present during the discussion. Although Congress leaders in general seemed to agree with his suggestions, PK’s doubts remained at every step. Sources also said that Prashant Kishor’s views were voiced by a section of veterans in response.
Senior Congress leader Digvijay Singh, who was on the decision-making panel on his plan in Congress on PK, tweeted this morning that “Ultimately Congress has to go ahead and put its House in order.
