After the Bhartiya Janata Party ‘s IT cell released an audio tape of Trinamool’ election Prashant Kishor, a strategist, was heard saying in a ‘ClubHouse’ chat that PM Narendra Modi is a people’s man in West Bengal that makes him very popular and that this is one of the factors that will determine which party sweeps the state became very controversial.
Amit Malviya, the BJP’s IT cell chief, asserted that Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee’s election strategist, Prashant Kishor, had approved the BJP’s victory. On social media, Malviya posted the audio of Prashant Kishor’s discussion on the ClubHouse platform. Kishor is chatting with a journalist in this scene.
The chat on ClubHouse, Mamata Banerjee’s election strategist concedes that even in TMC’s internal surveys, BJP is winning. The vote is for Modi, polarisation is a reality, the SCs (27 per cent of WB’s population), Matuas are all voting for the BJP, Amit Malviya- National in-charge of BJP’s Information & Technology department wrote in his tweet.
In the audio, Kishor is saying that on a public chat at the clubHouse, Prashant Kishor admitted that BJP is winning in TMC’s internal survey too. People are voting for Modi and polarization has taken place. SC and Matua, 27 per cent of Bengal’s population all voted for the BJP.
Another candid admission by Kishor is that — all that the Left, Congress and TMC ecosystem have done in the last 20 years is Muslim appeasement. Implication? It has resulted in resentment on the ground. The speakers had not realised that the chat was public, Malviya wrote.
That moment when Mamata Banerjee’s strategist realised that the ClubHouse room was open and his admissions were being heard by the public at large and not just a handful of Lutyens journalist. Deafening silence followed, Malviya added.
