He said this at a time when his prediction is seen coming true with the trends suggesting a clean sweep by the Trinamool Congress (TMC).

Meanwhile, he was trolled when he predicted a humiliating defeat for the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in Assembly elections in West Bengal in 2021 in December 2020.

He had claimed that BJP would struggle to even cross double digits in the election.

“For all the hype AMPLIFIED by a section of supportive media, in reality BJP will struggle to CROSS DOUBLE DIGITS in West Bengal,” he tweeted.

Trinamool Congress (TMC) chief Mamata Banerjee had roped in Kishor last year for her image makeover and prepare a battlefield for Assembly elections.

He also worked for Nitish Kumar in 2015 Bihar Assembly elections, Amarinder Singh in 2017 Punjab Assembly elections and Jagan Mohan Reddy in 2019.
