Prashant Kishor to quit as poll strategist
May 02, 2021  15:04
Prashant Kishor who has helped Mamata Banerjee win West Bengal for the third time against all odds, and MK Stalin win Tamil Nadu, says he will be quitting work as a poll strategist. 

"I've had enough. Eight-nine years I have been doing this. I don't need to do this. I am quitting this space. I do not want to continue to do what I am doing. I have done my bit. I want to take a break and do something else," Prashant Kishor tells NDTV. He said he was a failed politician, and neither did he say he was going to join politics or rule it out. He said his organisation Ipac was in able hands.

Kishor had said he would quit 'this space' (his work as a poll strategist) if the BJP won more than 99 seats. The BJP is leading at 84 seats, TMC at 205. His detractors will have to bite the dust and how! Clearly, Kishor is quitting on a high.
