Prashant Kishor, the man behind Modi's 2014 Lok Sabha campaign, has been approached by various political parties after he emerged as a key architect of the spectacular victory of Nitish-Lalu duo in Bihar,

There are reports that Kishor has been approached by some top Congress leaders to ensure the party's victory in Uttar Pradesh assembly polls.

However, Kishor might not immediately decide on taking up a new role as expectations from him have reached sky-high after the success he has tasted in Bihar and prior to that in Lok Sabha polls of 2014.

Sources say that his team has been approached for at least three upcoming assembly elections - in West Bengal, Assam and Tamil Nadu.
