Prashant Kishor, who is on a padyatra in Bihar in what’s extensively seen as a precursor to his sparkling access into energetic politics, instructed Press Trust of India that Mr Kumar has stored a line of conversation open with the BJP through JD(U) MP and Rajya Sabha Deputy Chairperson Harivansh.
Political strategist Prashant Kishor claimed nowadays that Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar is in touch with the BJP and that he may fit for a tie-up with the birthday party again if state of affairs demands so, a proposal disregarded via the JD(U) as deceptive and aimed at spreading confusion.
Mr Kishor, who’s on a padyatra in Bihar in what’s broadly visible as a precursor to his clean entry into lively politics, informed Press Trust of India that Mr Kumar has saved a line of communication open with the BJP through JD(U) MP and Rajya Sabha Deputy Chairperson Harivansh.
Query despatched to Harivansh for his reaction did now not elicit any response but his party rejected the claim and asserted that Mr Kumar will by no means be a part of hands with the BJP again.
Mr Kishor said, “People who are thinking that Nitish Kumar is actively building a national alliance towards the BJP could be surprised to recognise that he has kept a line open with the BJP. He is in contact with the BJP through his birthday celebration MP and Rajya Sabha Deputy Chairperson Harivansh ji.” He cautioned that Harivansh has no longer been requested to resign his Rajya Sabha put up for that reason even though the JD(U) has severed ties with the BJP.
“People have to hold this in mind that every time such occasions arise, he can go lower back to the BJP and work with it,” he said.
The Janata Dal (United) slammed Prashant Kishor, with its spokesperson KC Tyagi noting that the Bihar chief minister has publicly announced that he’s going to never once more in his existence be part of arms with the BJP.
“We strongly refute his claims. Nitish Kumar is in energetic politics for over 50 years and Prashant Kishor for six months. Kishor has made this kind of deceptive comment to unfold confusion,” Mr Tyagi said.
Mr Kishor commenced his ‘padyatra’ on October 2 from the Gandhi ashram in Betiharwa in West Champaran. He has set out to complete a three,500-km journey inside the next 12-15 months thru Bihar, looking for human beings’s aid to ‘exchange’ the system.
He turned into inside the JD(U) for less than 18 months before being expelled from the party in 2020 for his strident criticism of Mr Kumar for his guide to the BJP over contentious measures just like the Citizenship (Amendment) Act. Mr Kumar changed into then a BJP ally.
The JD(U) leader these days snapped his party’s ties with the BJP and joined palms with the RJD-Congress-Left alliance in Bihar and has vowed to work to build an alliance against the saffron birthday celebration on the national stage. A united competition will topple the BJP from strength on the Centre, he has asserted.
