Congress, TMC engage in war of words over Prashant Kishor’s ‘big disappointment’ tweet

Prime News, National (Congress), Oct  9:- Poll strategist Prashant Kishor irked the grand old party on Friday (October 8) after he pointed out ‘deep-rooted problems’ in the Congress.

Taking to Twitter, Kishor said those expecting a quick revival of Congress in the wake of Lakhimpur Kheri violence are setting themselves for “big disappointment”.

“People looking for a quick, spontaneous revival of GOP-led opposition based on the Lakhimpur Kheri incident are setting themselves up for a big disappointment,” he tweeted.

Congress did not take the criticism hands down and hit back at the popular poll strategist. Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel, without naming Kishor, said, “People looking for a ‘national’ alternative based on poaching INC functionaries who can’t win even their own seats is in for a big disappointment.”

Slamming Baghel over his “poaching” tweet, a likely reference to the recent defections of former Congress MP and its women’s wing chief Susmita Dev and former Goa Chief Minister Luizinho Faleiro into Mamata Banerjee’s party, All India Trinamool Congress (AITC) tweeted, “Rich words coming from a first-time CM. Punching above your weight doesn’t bring honour to you, Mr Bhupesh Baghel. What a shoddy attempt to please the high command!” (MR, Inputs: Agencies).
