Poll strategist Prashant Kishor met Congress leader Rahul Gandhi at his residence in Delhi on Tuesday, days after he held talks with Sharad Pawar of the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP). Congress leaders Priyanka Gandhi Vadra and KC Venugopal were also present during the meeting.

The meeting also comes as the Congress is trying to resolve the infighting within its Punjab unit as chief minister Amarinder Singh and Navjot Singh Sidhu have been at loggerheads over several issues just ahead of the state polls scheduled to be held next year.

Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka have met Amarinder Singh and Navjot Singh Sidhu separately in recent weeks. After that, Amarinder Singh met Congress president Sonia Gandhi earlier this month to resolve the crisis facing the party in the state ahead of next year’s assembly elections. Singh said after the meeting that they discussed the development of Punjab and “internal matters of the party” and that he would follow any decision taken by Gandhi.
