“I have said this before and repeating again – BJP will not to CROSS 100 in WB”: Prashant Kishor

News Desk: Prashant Kishor, Mamata Banerjee’s election strategist for the Bengal polls, appears to say that Prime Minister Narendra Modi is “as popular as” the Chief Minister in the state in excerpts of a Clubhouse chat posted on Twitter by the BJP’s Amit Malviya this morning. The bombshell audio clips dropped as Bengal voted in the fourth round of polls and triggered a wave of triumphant posts from BJP leaders who crowed “Game Over, Trinamool”.

In the chat last evening with journalists, Mr Kishor also appeared to say polarization, anger against the Mamata Banerjee government and Dalit votes were the three factors working in favour of the BJP in this election.

“The TMC’s election has just been thrown away,” Amit Malviya, the BJP’s social media in-charge, posted on the clips that have gone viral in the middle of the nerve-wracking Mamata Banerjee versus BJP campaign.

In his first response to the damning tweets, Mr Kishor dared the BJP to release the full transcript of the chat on Clubhouse, an invitation-only social media app that enables audio discussions on chatrooms.

“I am glad BJP guys are taking my chat more seriously than the words or their own leaders. With regards to the selective and distorted use of part of the conversation, I urge them to release the full conversation,” the poll strategist said.

He also tweeted: “They should show courage and share the full chat instead of getting excited with selective use of parts of it. I have said this before and repeating again – BJP will not to CROSS 100 in WB. Period.”
