Kolkata: Known for making the parties win elections, political strategist Prashant Kishor, on Thursday, met West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee. Speculations of him working for the Trinamool Congress (TMC) in near future have been doings the rounds now.

Sources close to the party have informed that Kishor, who was accompanied by TMC MP and Banerjee's nephew Abhishek Banerjee, had two hours long meeting with the Bengal CM and discussed about the fading TMC's fate in the state.

They said Kishor agreed to work with her if she so desired.

The saffron party won 18 out of a total of 42 Lok Sabha seats in West Bengal, only four less than the ruling TMC, in the recently concluded general election.

Buoyed by stupendous performance, the saffron party leaders are claiming that their next target is to overthrow the TMC from the power in the 2021 state polls.

The Thursday's meeting indicates that Banerjee may engage the poll planner to halt the BJP's growing influence in Bengal ahead of the crucial state election.
