Prashant Kishor's I-PAC teams up with AAP ahead of Delhi polls
Delhi Chief Minister and Aam Aadmi Party convenor Arvind Kejriwal confirmed the news on Saturday morning on micro-blogging website, twitter. Prashant Kishor-led political consultancy firm I-PAC is currently working on the Trinamool Congress' re-election campaign for the 2021 West Bengal Assembly polls.
"Happy to share that Indian-PAC is coming on-board with us. Welcome aboard!" the chief minister said in a tweet.
The Indian Political Action Committee (I-PAC) replied to the tweet, saying the AAP was seen as the toughest opponent during Punjab polls. Kishor's electioneering machine worked behind the scenes for the Congress in Punjab.
"After Punjab results, we acknowledged you as the toughest opponent that we have ever faced. Happy to join forces now with Kejriwal and AAP," the I-PAC said in a tweet.
Elections to the 70-member Delhi assembly are due early next year.
