Prashant Kishor on Rahul Gandhi's Yatra: 'Should Start From...'

Yatra, led by Rahul Gandhi, started in Tamil Nadu.


Former political strategist Prashant Kishor said on Tuesday that the Parliament’s ‘Bharat Jodo Yatra’ should have started in Gujarat or any other country ruled by the BJP.

He was speaking on the sidelines of a program where he met local leaders and activists supporting the cause of a separate Vidarbha state.

“It would be better if Parliament started to hold Bharat Jodo Yatra from Gujarat, where the elections will take place later this year, or other BJP-ruled states like Uttar Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh,” Mr Kishor told PTI as asked about the ongoing campaign.

The Yatraled by Rahul Gandhi, starting in Tamil Nadu.

Notably, earlier this year there was a stir about Mr Kishor joining Parliament, but he later said he had turned down an offer to head its electoral strategy.

Interacting with Vidarbha’s supporters, he called on the people of the region to unite efforts to realize the dream of a separate state.

Former BJP MLA Ashish Deshmukh organized the program to develop a strategy to achieve statehood for the eastern region of Maharashtra.

“If people have hope, then the idea of ​​a separate Vidarbha state can be pursued,” Mr. Kishor said.

“The hysteria should reach the Center. It should have a national impact. The campaign should emerge from the society,” he added.

Mr. Kishor has stopped working as a political strategist and wants to work for the people and not for any party, Mr. Kishor said.
