Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar met his ex JDU colleague Prashant Kishor on Friday, said there was no special meaning to the meeting and his relations with Kishor are very old.
Speaking to media persons on Saturday, Nitish Kumar said, “My relationship with Prashant Kishor is very old and not from today. There is no special meaning behind the meeting.” CM Nitish Kumar and ex JDU functionary Prashant Kishor met after a long time on Friday.
A resident of Buxar district in Bihar, Prashant Kishor was in the limelight in 2014 when he managed the poll campaign for Narendra Modi, the then prime ministerial candidate of the Bharatiya Janata Party, which went on to register its best-ever electoral performance.
In 2015, Prashant Kishor helped the JDU-Congress-RJD alliance to win the Bihar Assembly election, defeating the BJP-led NDA. In 2018, Prashant Kishor joined the Nitish Kumar-led JDU and was made the party’s vice-president. Nonetheless, he soon decided to quit the JDU over the party’s support to the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) in Parliament.
Of late, Prashant Kishor’s political consultancy group I-PAC, which was working with the Trinamool Congress since last year’s West Bengal Assembly polls, pulled out of Bengal in the midst of charges of expanding impedance in the party.
