Prashant Kishor says BJP will win less than 100 seats in West Bengal or he'll quit Twitter!
A day after BJP's Amit Shah left West Bengal, following his two-day high-voltage campaign in the state, election strategist Prashant Kishor on Monday claimed on Twitter that the BJP will struggle to cross the double-digit mark in assembly polls.
Kishor, who has been roped in by TMC supremo Mamata Banerjee to strengthen her party’s poll prospects, said that he would quit the microblogging site if the saffron party does any better than what he predicted.
"For all the hype AMPLIFIED by a section of supportive media, in reality BJP will struggle to CROSS DOUBLE DIGITS in #WestBengal. PS: Please save this tweet and if BJP does any better I must quit this space!” Kishor tweeted.
BJP leaders scoffed at the tweet, saying it was ambiguous as Kishor did not clarify what he meant by “space.”
