Prashant Kishor, Mamata Banerjee's election strategist for the Bengal polls, has landed in a controversy. He has reportedly said in a Clubhouse chat that the Bharatiya Janata Party is winning in the West Bengal Assembly election. Prashant Kishor is also heard saying that PM Narendra Modi is hugely popular in West Bengal. According to Prashant Kishor, this is one of the three factors which would decide which party sweeps the state. Kishor is also heard saying that factors such as Suvendu Adhikari's exit from the Trinamool Congress and him advising Mamata Banerjee for the West Bengal polls will have little impact in this election. Rather, Dalits and the Mathua communities specifically voting for the BJP is a very important factor," Prashant Kishor said. The audio bomb was released by the BJP as the state is voting in the fourth phase of the West Bengal Assembly election, Amit Malviya, BJP IT cell head, shared the purported conversation of Prashant Kishor in an open Clubhouse organised by a journalist.
Is it open?— Amit Malviya (@amitmalviya) April 10, 2021
That moment when Mamata Banerjee’s strategiest realised that the Club House 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...

In his response to the damning tweets, Prashant Kishor dared the BJP to release the full transcript of the chat on Clubhouse, an invitation-only social media app that enables audio discussions on chatrooms.
I am glad BJP is taking my chat more seriously than words of their own leaders!????— Prashant Kishor (@PrashantKishor) April 10, 2021
They should show courage & share the full chat instead of getting excited with selective use of parts of it.
I have said this before & repeating again - BJP will not to CROSS 100 in WB. Period.
