Prashant Kishor, the political strategist who rose to fame by helping Narendra Modi’s BJP secure a majority in the 2014 Lok Sabha elections, has distanced himself from Chandrababu Naidu’s recent electoral success.

On Friday, Kishor clarified that he played no part in the Telugu Desam Party’s (TDP) victory in Andhra Pradesh and Chandrababu Naidu achieved all on his own.

“I did not play any role in his win in Andhra Pradesh and I have not run any campaign for him in this election,” Kishor stated in an interview with India Today.

Chandrababu Naidu secured a landslide win and is now set to return as the Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh, with his swearing-in ceremony scheduled for June 12.

Reflecting on his career, he admitted to inaccuracies in his previous electoral predictions, notably regarding the BJP’s performance in the Lok Sabha polls.

“I was wrong in my assessment by a big 20 percent. We predicted BJP would get close to 300 seats, but they got 240,” he conceded.

Kishor said that he has decided to stop predicting election outcomes in the future.
