Following the footsteps of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) and beginning preparations for the State Assembly elections scheduled to be held in 2021, MK Stalin led DMK has roped in Prashant Kishor's political consultancy firm Indian Political Action Committee (I-PAC), Indian Express.
The development comes even as speculations were rife over the possibility of the actor-politician Kamal Hassan led Makal Needhi Maiam (MNM) roping in Kishor led I-PAC to assist the greenhorn party as a strategist to prepare for the elections scheduled for 2021.
Kishor's firm has previously also worked for Prime Minister (PM) Narendra Modi's campaign in 2014 General Elections, Punjab Chief Minister (CM) Amarinder Singh's campaign for the State Assembly elections and the Congress party's campaign in the 2017 Uttar Pradesh (UP) elections.
It should also be noted that Kishor has also joined hands with West Bengal's CM Mamata Banerjee led Trinamool Congress (TMC) as the State is set to undergo Assembly elections next year. The elections would witness a major competition between the incumbent Government ruled by the TMC and the challenging Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).
