Prashant Kishor raised questions about Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar’s visit to Delhi and said it would not influence national politics.
Prashant Kishor raised questions about Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar’s visit to Delhi. Speaking to India Today, the election strategist said that merely meeting with leaders and drinking tea with four leaders would make no difference to the public and that it would have no effect on elections.
“What difference will this meeting make in terms of your ability to contest elections, your credibility or create a new narrative?” he said.
He also said that a joint stuck by glue may be breakable, but CM Kumar’s unwavering association with his office was not. Kishor spoke about Kumar leaving the BJP in Bihar and joining the Grand Alliance, saying that it was a state-based incident. As per Kishor, it would not have any effect on other states.
He said that earlier in Maharashtra there existed a government of Mahagathbandhan, but currently, there was a government of NDA, but it did not affect Bihar. He said that the importance of CM Kumar’s visit to Delhi was given undue importance and that its effect on national politics would be negligible.
Kishor said that the public voted for the Grand Alliance in 2015 but did not let them win in the preceding polls in the year 2020. Therefore, a shift in Bihar politics and the difference between the two poll results would not affect the formation in the country.
