YSRCP chief YS Jagan Mohan Reddy has hired political strategist Prashant Kishore to prepare political strategies and campaign plans to help the party win the next assembly elections in 2019.
Prashant Kishore will not only help with chalking out strategies and planning but will also help the party with complete support in conducting surveys and molding public opinion, besides formulating campaign modules.
It is being said that YSRCP MPs & senior party leaders advised Jagan against hiring Prashant Kishore as his support to Congress party did not help them win the U.P elections in March. The party leaders are said to have advised Jagan that it would be wise to work on their own and not seek assistance from Prashant.
However, Jagan Mohan Reddy is said to be insisting on working with Prashant Kishore to achieve the party’s goals in 2019. Jagan is said to have offered Prashant a hefty sum of Rs. 50 Crore as his fee.
