Prashant Kishor, unarguably the most astute political strategist in the modern era, has come up with an idea that might give Congress the breakthrough it desperately seeks in Uttar Pradesh.
Estimates say that there are 10 per cent Brahmins in the total 21 crore population of Uttar Pradesh.
This significant population has been a loyal BJP supporter since the Babri Masjid demolition, but has been constantly declining in the last few years.
Old horses say that the Congress might not benefit from this because it might alienate the other castes, which eventually gave birth to casteist parties like SP and BSP.
Kishor’s suggestion came in the presence of Rahul Gandhi, who is quite popular for taking pictures with the marginalized. So what has the scion of the GOP to say on that?
