Nobody has a magic wand: Prashant Kishor on Priyanka impact on LS polls

Patna (Bihar): JD(U) leader and election strategist Prashant Kishor said that Priyanka Gandhi’s highly anticipated induction in the Congress will not impact the forthcoming general elections.

He said Priyanka Gandhi is not a big challenge, while adding that to create an impact one needs time and that nobody had a “magic wand” which could perform a miracle for the Congress party.

Addressing the media here, Kishor said, “She is just starting, nobody has a magic wand. I don’t see her as a big challenge in the short run, not because she lacks capability but because it’s hard to make an impact in a short time. In long run, she is a big face and name.”

The newly-appointed Congress general secretary for East Uttar Pradesh, Priyanka on Monday, made her much-awaited political debut by holding a mega road show along with brother and party president Rahul Gandhi in Lucknow. Her fellow UP in-charge Jyotiraditya Scindia was also present at the event.

Priyanka was given charge of Uttar Pradesh east as Congress party’s general secretary on January 23.
