Hours after his meet with Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) chief Sharad Pawar, poll strategist Prashant Kishor on Monday termed the creation of a third front against BJP a “futile exercise" as he also denied his involvement in any such “overtures". Kishor clarified that he will not attend the meeting of opposition parties in Delhi on Tuesday.
“I have no relation with tomorrow’s meet. My meeting today also has no relation with tomorrow’s Rashtra Manch meeting," said Kishor after his second meet with Pawar within two weeks fueled speculations of a joint opposition attack on the BJP under ‘Mission 2024′.
