- Prashant Kishor predicts TMC’s win
- Says he would quit for ever if proved wrong
Kolkota: “What I said in a tweet in the past would come true on May 2,” said election expert Prashant Kishor in a tweet on Monday. He expressed his confidence that the Trinamool Congress would win in the democratic battle going on in West Bengal. One of the key battles for democracy in the country is on in West Bengal, he said. The Bengalis are ready with their verdict. They would vote for their daughter Mamata, he commented.
This was the first tweet by Prashant Kishor this year. He tweeted on 21 December 2021 saying that Trinamool Congress (TMC) is going to win in assembly elections in West Bengal. The pro-BJP media has been saying that the BJP would win. In fact, that party would not cross two digits. If my guess is proved wrong, I would quit this social media for ever, he swore. Prashant Kishor’s IPAC network has been working for the TMC in this elections.
