Andhra Pradesh Deputy Chief Minister K E Krishnamurthy noted that Political strategist Prashant Kishor deserted YSR Congress Party and left for Delhi due to the misbehavior of Opposition Leader Jagan Mohan Reddy. Neither Prashant nor YSRCP has made any such statements. However, the TDP legislator’s comments gain significance in view of the recent reports of incidents of difference in opinion between YSRCP cadre and Prashant.
Last month Prashant was given an official grand welcome at the YSRCP plenary. However, following the announcement, several reports surfaced stating that the YSRCP leaders are allegedly insecure of their position in party due to the strategies of Prashant. Jagan apparently informed the leaders that his decision is finally and that strategist is here only to make suggestions. YSRCP cadre has also claimed that Jagan is getting used the working style of the strategist.
This could also be seen as a tactic from the TDP leader to strengthen the thoughts of YSRCP cadre and consequently cornering Jagan who is extensively conducting roadshows in Nandyal.
