New Delhi: Even as Captain Amarinder Singh steps down as CM on 18 September, the countdown to his exit had begun as early as August 5. That was the day when Prashant Kishor, aka PK, had announced his resignation as an advisor to Amarinder.

Reliable sources point out that PK was in possession of three surveys which showed that Amarinder had become extremely unpopular as CM. This “survey reality” was discussed between PK and the Gandhis too when he had met them. Sources point out that Rahul Gandhi had made up his mind to let go of the Captain post this meeting.

Kishor’s critics in Congress say that he was adept at creating a ‘mahaul’ (atmosphere), but they also admit that the feedback from the ground was that the Captain was unpopular.

It’s true that PK was keen to join the Congress. But he conveyed to the Gandhis that till the time a few critical moves weren’t made, his joining wouldn’t make any sense. One of these moves, now it appears, was to dethrone the Captain from the Punjab CM’s chair.

So today, as the Captain bids farewell to Punjab CMs chair, he should know that PK had a part in it.
