“March se kaam shuru kiya. Che mahine mein to pura desh ‘Modi Modi’ ho gaya (I started the work in March and in six months the whole country was chanting Modi’s name),” Kishor said while addressing a gathering of about 600 block presidents of Congress in Lucknow.

He said that after forming the committees, he’ll ensure that (Congress) vice-president (Rahul Gandhi) personally comes here to meet you and you do not have to take rounds in Delhi.
Kishor is formulating assembly-wise strategy for around 60 constituencies of eastern UP, including Varanasi, Allahabad and Gorakhpur divisions.
Seven teams, set up by Kishor, have started conducting surveys in 14 divisions, and the plan is to begin poll preparations with these constituencies first while focusing on caste combinations on each seat.
