Maal kisi ka, kamaal kisi ka

kishore masterminds congress strategy

maal-kisi-ka-kamaal-kisi-kaTHE newly appointed strategist of the Congress party, Prashant Kishore, approached Rahul Gandhi with a `72-crore mega-plan for Uttar Pradesh. Rahul told him the budged was too high and that he should bring it down. Sources say the plan was reviewed and the budget brought down to `32 crore. Rahul is learnt to have told Kishore that the Congress was struggling with a paucity of funds — no industrial house is coming forward to support them, and thus the budget should be cut down to `8-10 crore. Sources informed that Kishore strategises in a different way and told Rahul that he didn’t want money from the Congress and that he would arrange for the money himself. Kishore then met Bihar CM Nitish Kumar and told him that if he wanted to emerge as the prime ministerial candidate in the 2019 elections, the Congress will play a big part in it. Kishore said he would speak to Rahul about lending him support. Nitish Kumar seems to understand what is in Kishore’s mind. Apparently, things are working out and Kishore is on the way to get money. A perfect case for maal kisi ka aur kamaal kisi ka (using somebody’s money to another’s benefit).
