BJP Cannot Secure 370 Seats Alone In Lok Sabha Polls: Kishor

Mumbai: Political strategist-turned-activist Prashant Kishor said it is very unlikely that the BJP will independently get 370 seats in the upcoming 2024 Lok Sabha election, adding that 370 seats is merely a target set by the BJP.

“In Parliament, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has discussed this figure. However, I believe that this is merely an aim for BJP employees, not a prospect,” Prashant Kishor stated in reference to the impending election.  

For the first time in Parliament, Narendra Modi brought up the number 370 in relation to Article 370, which his administration repealed in a historic decision during his second term. He said that the BJP would win 370 seats on its own and the NDA would surpass 400 seats. PM Modi then reiterated the goal of 370 seats at numerous rallies that he spoke at.  

“There is a chance of BJP doing very well in Bengal. In Tamil Nadu, BJP may for the first time break into double digits. In Telangana too, the BJP will do well,” Prashant Kishor said.

“Issues like Sandeshkhali are bound to dent the ruling party. But with or without Sandeshkhali, the BJP is rising in Bengal. 2024’s election result in Bengal will come as a surprise to many in Delhi who think BJP is finished in Bengal,” Prashant Kishor said.

According to Prashant Kishor, democratic institutions will continue to deteriorate if the BJP wins the 2024 election, but this will happen regardless of the party. Citing Indira Gandhi as an example, Prashant Kishor stated that the democratic fabric of society is undermined if any one or group gains significant influence. India won’t turn into China, but there will be more indications of autocratic leadership. However, Prashant stated that the opposition is in charge of 15 states.

Speaking at the “Express Adda” event, Kishor was also asked if the upcoming Lok Sabha elections will prioritize PM Modi above the Mandal and Ram Mandir concerns.  

In response to the query, he declared, “PM Modi will undoubtedly receive the majority of the votes.”

Although the Ram Mandir in Ayodhya is large, even the BJP will concede that it would not have been as successful without PM Modi.”

In 2014, Kishor worked for the Bharatiya Janata Party as an election strategy. Prominent political figures Kishor has worked with include the BJP, JD(U)-RJD Mahagathbandhan, DMK, Trinamool Congress, and the YSR Congress. In 2022, Kishor started the Jan Suraj Abhiyan.
