Prashant Kishor to fire 85 percent of his IPAC staff after Bengal election victory, may start a political career in Bihar: Report

IPAC chief Prashant Kishor interacted with his team members and informed them that they should not expect any kind of job or favour from the West Bengal government and advised them to look for other opportunities.

After working with Mamata Banerjee-led Trinamool Congress which emerged victorious in the recently held West Bengal assembly elections, Prashant Kishor is all set to sack more than 85 per cent of the employees working in his organisation – Indian-Political Action Committee (IPAC), reported Sunday Guardian.

According to the reports, Prashant Kishor’s IPAC has decided to fire more than 85% of the almost 900 employees who were part of their campaigning team in the recently held West Bengal assembly elections. The IPAC-led by election strategist Prashant Kishor had devised the election campaigning for the incumbent Trinamool Congress in West Bengal and led to the third successive poll victory for the Mamata Banerjee-led party.

Reportedly, the IPAC team consists of around 879 people, out of which 479 are core team members, while another 400 employees were on a contract. The contract employees have been told that the organisation will not continue to employ more than 150 members. The workers have also been informally communicated that they would receive termination letters by email in the coming days.

On Thursday, IPAC chief Prashant Kishor interacted with his team members and informed them that they should not expect any kind of job or favour from the West Bengal government and advised them to look for other opportunities. It is expected that only the core 100-150 people will be retained to carry out political strategising work that IPAC does.

Most of the employees, who will be sacked, had high hopes that the IPAC would retain them to assist the Mamata Banerjee-led government and provide “consultancy” after being attached with state government agencies. Following the victory of TMC in the West Bengal elections, all the members of IPAC were reportedly given one month’s paid leave. The core team will move to Punjab a month later to assist the Amarinder Singh-led Congress government for the February 2022 polls.

Prashant Kishor to setup IPAC in Bihar, may concentrate on Bihar politics

In another related significant development, IPAC has already started the process of recruiting people for “campaign management” in Bihar. Kishor, who hails from Bihar and has considerable experience of working in Bihar, is aiming to revive the political program in Bihar. Earlier, Kishor had worked with Nitish Kumar and was also appointed as the Vice-President of JDU. The IPAC is looking to employ and train local youths for political roles.

Recently, Prashant Kishor had declared that he would also be quitting IPAC and pursue another career. Prashant Kishor had announced his decision to hand it over to his colleagues and added that he wanted to take some time out and look at an alternate career. However, there was no clarity on his future endeavours.

With Prashant Kishor is eyeing at restructuring his organisation to make a come back in Bihar, it is being said that Kishor is looking to emerge as a credible political option in state politics by using his political experience. He is expected to train human resource and consolidate material resources to fight the 2025 Bihar Assembly elections
