Elections in Bengal just two months away, poll strategist Prashant Kishor’s team is playing a key role for Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee’s Trinamool Congress, helping it tackle the BJP challenge. Amid speculation that it also has a say in candidate selection, the Indian Political Action Committee or IPAC says it is acting as a force multiplier for the ruling party, helping it identify chinks in its armour, plugging gaps in its strategy and draw in votes that had moved away.
The third item on the list is important, with the BJP rapidly expanding its footprint in tribal areas of the state. A portion of Scheduled Caste, Scheduled Tribe and Adivasi votes in the western and northern parts of the state had shifted to the BJP in 2019, giving it a chunk of the 18 parliamentary seats it won in the state.
The IPAC’s role is to ensure that Trinamool’s message for these segments get amplified. Much of this is done through outreach programmes, where mid-level and district leaders can interact with the Chief Minister.
At one such programme organised by IPAC to reach out to the party’s tribal and Scheduled Castes leaders, Mamata Banerjee had said: “I am appealing to my brothers from the SC/ST and Adivasi community. They (the BJP) have won a lot of your seats. They have won in Junglemahal and North Bengal. They have won so many MPs. Have they given you anything?”
The event set the tone for the messaging the Trinamool wanted to send out.
