According to media reports, if the team delivers positive results then it could be given the responsibility to manage the campaign for 2019 Lok Sabha elections.
Reports suggest that the team recently met with party president Amit Shah in Lucknow. According to the team, they find themselves ideologically closer to the BJP.
According to BJP’s state president Keshav Maurya, Congress and the team of Prashant Kishor are not in a situation to compete with the BJP in the state. He said the party is aiming to win the assembly elections with majority and it will become a reality.
Meanwhile, the BJP will not project a chief ministerial candidate for the UP assembly elections due next year. “All political parties are waiting for the chief ministerial candidate of BJP. For us, every party worker is a CM face. Party had projected CM faces in Assam and Delhi assembly polls. While we succeeded in Assam, we lost Delhi. We fought in Haryana, Maharashtra and Jharkhand without projecting any as our CM candidate and won.”
He also alleged that on the occasions of Dussehra and Muharram, violence broke out in a few districts of UP but the state government took action against only one side.
