RJD and BJP criticize Prashant Kishor for his plan to launch a political party


Patna: The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) slammed Prashant Kishor on Monday after the election strategist hinted he would launch his own political party.

RJD spokesman Ejaj Ahmed said Kishor should first reveal the relationship between Union Home Minister Amit Shah and Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar and then talk about Jan-Suraaj in the state.

On Monday morning, Prashant Kishor tweeted, “My quest to be a meaningful participant in democracy and help shape pro-people politics has been on a 10-year roller coaster ride.”

“As I turn this page, it is time to reach out to the True Masters. The people to better understand the issues and the path to Jan Suraaj – People’s Good Governance from Bihar,” he tweeted.

“When JD-U sacked Prashant Kishor, Nitish Kumar said that he included him on the recommendation of Amit Shah before Bihar assembly election in 2015. Now he should clarify whether his relationship with Amit Shah and Nitish Kumar are the same or not. So far, Prashant Kishor has not given any clarification on this,” Ahmed said.

The JD-U expelled Prashant Kishor in January 2020.

“As for Jan-Suraaj, he should first establish relations with the people of Bihar on common issues and then talk about Jan-Suraaj,” he said.

“He had talked about the same issue in 2020 but left as soon as he was concerned about the commercial interest of his I-PAC more than the interest of the people of Bihar,” Ahmed said.

Nikhil Anand, National General Secretary of the BJP’s OBC wing, said: “PK is a political broker and his new party will be a political boutique.”

“Kishor is not a sociologist or an economist or a social psychologist or a political scientist, a journalist or a psephologist. He has a private company that works for various political parties with the expertise of image making and political propaganda works with Facebook, Twitter and social media management. He is purely a political broker who provides different kinds of services to different political parties and their leaders by taking money,” Anand said.

“He has political ambitions for which he has met leaders from all over the country but after being disappointed he will now start a political party. It seems that some political parties and their leaders want to promote Prashant Kishor to launch his political party so that he can help them by establishing his existence in the role of ‘vote katwa’ (vote cutter),” Anand said.

“The BJP is a party based on organisation, ideology, struggle and we have an army of more struggling, capable and knowledgeable workers on the streets and in the stands, who are much better than the PK, thanks to what the BJP is the largest political party in the world. today. We don’t take political touts and political shops seriously,” he said.

Jan Adhikar party chairman, Rajesh Ranjan alias Pappu Yadav, however, hailed the launch of a political party by the KP in Bihar.
