Prashant Kishor, a popular political strategist and the founder of the indian Political Action Committee (I-PAC) appears to have reversed his forecasts for Andhra Pradesh's assembly and lok sabha elections.
Until recently, he had been warning media outlets that the congress PARTY' target='_blank' title='ysr congress-Latest Updates, Photos, Videos are a click away, CLICK NOW'>ysr congress party, led by chief minister Y. S. jagan Mohan Reddy, would lose substantially in the assembly elections owing to his flawed policies.
He even warned prominent news presenter V. ravi Prakash in an interview on the latter's wallet PLATFORM' target='_blank' title='digital-Latest Updates, Photos, Videos are a click away, CLICK NOW'>digital channel that the YSRCP's number of seats will fall from 151 in the 2019 elections to 51 this time.

However, in an interview with national news reporter Barkha Dutt, he remarked that there was no use in disputing the number of seats the YSRCP would win because it would be determined by june 4.
He was reacting to Jagan's remark that his party would win more seats than in 2019 when prashant kishor led the I-PAC and strategized for the YSRCP.
"I am quite hesitant about projecting the precise number of seats that any political party will win. I seldom estimate the number of seats. "In Andhra Pradesh, I can only say that jagan will lose, and I don't want to predict the numbers," he stated.
He stated that if his forecasts were incorrect, he would suffer terrible consequences.

"If my predictions come true, the backlash will be on jagan, as it was on amit shah in West bengal in 2021," he stated.
However, prashant maintained there was nothing wrong with jagan stating that his party will win more seats than in 2019.
"Even chandrababu naidu will claim that his party will win 150 seats." "So will amit shah, rahul Gandhi, and Tejaswi Yadav," he added.
"Even on polling day, when a particular political party is trailing after the fourth round, the party chief will not concede defeat but will say there are still a few more rounds to go and his party will emerge victorious," he said.
