“Prashant Kishor met me twice,” the NCP chief added, further claiming that they “only talked about a company of his”.
“No discussion was held regarding the leadership for the 2024 elections or the Presidential election,” he said.
Pawar claimed that Prashant Kishor has told him that he has left the field of formulating poll strategies.
Pawar also, as per ANI, said that nothing has been decided so far, either pertaining to the 2024 general elections, or state elections.
Meanwhile, NCP leader and Maharashtra Minister Nawab Malik too was quoted by ANI as saying that no discussion has taken place within the party so far regarding the Presidential poll.
“If someone’s circulating this news, then I’d like to clarify that it’s not true,” Malik added.
These clarifications come amid a slew of speculations regarding Prashant Kishor’s meetings with Sharad Pawar. One of these meetings reportedly took place at Sharad Pawar’s residence in New Delhi, with a host of Opposition leaders in attendance.
