According to sources, talks are being held to chalk out a strategy for the 2024 general elections. Congress party has also asked poll strategist Prashant Kishor to join the party. This came after PK’s detailed presentation on Lok Sabha elections during the meeting held at Congress president Sonia Gandhi’s residence on Saturday.

According to insiders, “Prashant Kishor may join Congress. He will not be used as a consultant, rather he has been asked to join the party and work as a leader. He gave a detailed presentation about the roadmap and organisational changes needed in the run up to the 2024 Lok Sabha poll.”

It is being speculated that Kishor’s gameplan will help Congress concentrate on 370 seats while, forging alliances in the rest. Kishor in his detailed presentation had reportedly stated that Congress should fight alone in Bihar, Odisha and Uttar Pradesh but form alliances in Tamil Nadu, Maharashtra, Jharkhand and even Bengal.
