In March of this year, Captain Amarinder Singh appointed Prashant Kishor as his Principal Advisor, ahead of the state’s 2022 Assembly elections.
CHANDIGARH (PUNJAB) — Prashant Kishor, a political strategist, resigned as Principal Advisor to Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh on Thursday, ahead of the 2022 Assembly elections.
Kishor claimed in his resignation letter that he will be unable to perform his duties as the Principal Advisor to the Punjab Chief Minister because he has decided to take a brief vacation from public life.
“As you are aware, in view of my decision to take a temporary break from active role in public life, I have not been able to take over the responsibilities as your Principal Advisor,” his letter read.
Pertinently, Captain Amarinder Singh named Kishor as his Principal Advisor in March this year, ahead of the state’s 2022 Assembly elections.
The election strategist had previously been hired by Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee‘s Trinamool Congress (TMC) for the West Bengal Assembly Elections 2021, and he had previously stated that if the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) performs any better in the state than his prediction, he would leave micro-blogging site Twitter.
Apart from Mamata Banerjee and Captain Amarinder Singh, Kishor served as a political strategist for a number of political parties, assisting them in winning different elections.
