Prashant Kishor meets Rahul Gandhi, sets off political buzz

Congress’ organisational general secretary KC Venugopal and Punjab in-charge Harish Rawat were also present in the meeting.

Political strategist Prashant Kishor met with Congress leaders Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi Vadra on Tuesday, months ahead of the assembly polls in various states, including Uttar Pradesh and Punjab next year.
 
Others present in the meeting at Rahul Gandhi’s residence in Delhi included the Congress’ organisational general secretary KC Venugopal and Punjab in-charge Harish Rawat.
 
It is being widely speculated that in the two-and-a-half-hour-long meeting, a strategy was devised to end the prolonged infighting between Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh and party leader Navjot Singh Sidhu. 
 
Rawat, however, told the media outside Rahul’s residence that the meeting wasn’t specifically about Punjab.
 
“Rahulji is a national leader. Many people meet him to discuss all sorts of things,” Rawat said. “This (meeting) doesn’t mean that Prashant Kishor came here to talk about Punjab. Whatever discussions held with the leadership on the subject of Punjab will be led by me.”
 
He, however, hinted that a possible resolution could be announced soon. “(There) will be good news for Punjab Congress in the next 3-4 days,” he said.
