Poll strategist Prashant Kishor has resigned from the post of principal advisor to Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh months before the Assembly elections in the state.

“In view of my decision to take a temporary break from active role in public life, I’ve not been able to take over the responsibilities as your principal advisor. I request you to kindly relieve me from this responsibility,” Kishor told Singh, according to news agency ANI.

Back in March this year, Amarinder Singh had tweeted saying, “Happy to share that @PrashantKishor has joined me as my Principal Advisor. Look forward to working together for the betterment of the people of Punjab!”

Soon after Singh had announced it on Twitter, the Punjab Cabinet cleared Kishor’s appointment as: “Principal Advisor to the Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh in the rank and status of a Cabinet Minister,” the state government had said in a statement.
