Congress state President Raj Babbar today spotted a poster announcing a reward of Rs 5 lakh to the person who finds political strategist Prashant Kishor and presents him before the party workers. The posters were removed immediately.
According to reports, the missing poster was put up by secretary in the Uttar Pradesh Congress Committee Rajesh Singh, who however denied them. He has now been suspended.
Kishor has been facing criticism since the party lost in the recently-ended Uttar Pradesh elections. He was handpicked by Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi Vadra to manage the Uttar Pradesh Assembly elections. Reports suggest that Kishor was the one to suggest the Congress-Samajwadi Party alliance.
The only strategy by Kishor that proved right was Congress' victory in Punjab.
