Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is going to be the Centre of Indian polity and the party is not going anywhere for many decades, poll strategist Prashant Kishor said on Thursday (28 October).
He also said that Congress leader Rahul Gandhi is wrong in thinking that people will soon "throw away" the party from power.
Kishor, while addressing a gathering in Goa on Thursday, said, “BJP is going to be the centre of Indian polity… whether they win, whether they lose, like it was for the first 40 years for Congress. BJP is going nowhere. Once you secure 30 per cent plus votes at the India-level you are not going away in a hurry", reports Indian Express.
"So do not ever get into this trap that people are getting angry and they will throw away (Prime Minister Narendra) Modi. Maybe they will throw away Modi but BJP is not going anywhere. They are going to be here, they are to fight it out for the next many decades. It’s not going in a hurry,” Kishor said.
A video clip of Kishor's address was shared on social media by BJP leader Ajay Sehrawat.
Kishor further added, “That is where the problem lies with Rahul Gandhi probably. He thinks it’s just a matter of time that people will throw him (PM Modi) away. That’s not happening.”
