“Taking a cue from AAP’s Coffee with Kejirwal, Congress poll strategist launched ‘Coffee with Captain’ to woo young voters of state ahead of assembly polls in Punjab. While AAP charged a cup of coffee for Rs 20,000, however, the price charged for sharing the podium with Captain Amarinder is Rs 10 lakhs.”
Congress is leaving no stone unturned ahead of assembly polls in Punjab scheduled for early next year. With an eye on voters from elite class, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) launched the ‘aam aadmi’ dinner events in the run-up to Delhi Assembly Elections. Top AAP leaders including Arvind Kejriwal attended these dinners. Following on the strategy of AAP, Congress’ poll strategist for Punjab, Prashant Kishor has launched ‘Coffee with Captain’ programme.
Congress’ chief ministerial candidate Captain Amarinder Singh invites youngsters for a cup of coffee. While those who register for the event are invited for a round for a coffee with Captain Aamarinder Singh, however, the price charged for sharing the podium with Captain Amarinder is Rs 10 lakhs.
‘Coffee with Captain’ a flop show
The well-orchestrated event is heavily promoted by social media team of Indian National Congress. During the course of events, Captain Amarinder is projected as a leader of futuristic vision committed for heralding a revolution of good governance in state.
It must be noted that the very first such event conducted by Prashant Kishore’s organization, Indian Political Action Committee (IPAC) turned into a disaster. The scene at the dais turned chaotic as the youngsters who had enrolled for the session, began overpowering each other while asking questions and began arguing among each other. In midst of chaos, the event had to be stopped midway with captain leaving the stage.
