Earlier this week, Popular Political Strategist Prashant Kishor announced that he will stop working for Political parties and will be going to Bihar or Gujarat to work at the Grass Root Levels. He denied the plans of joining any political party.
But he seems to have changed his mind and is joining Nitish Kumar-led JD(U) Party today. That will also mean that Prashant Kishor has joined the party which is an ally of the NDA Government at the center. Through this route, he may well be working on Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s re-election campaign for 2019.
Kishor is also likely to take a senior position in both the party and the Bihar government, effectively becoming Kumar’s number 2 in the hierarchy. He will be chief negotiator for the seat-sharing with BJP for 2019. There is a deadlock over the seat-sharing between BJP and JD(U) over the 40 Lok Sabha Seats in Bihar.
Prashant Kishor’s Political Strategy Arm, I-PAC is currently engaged with YSR Congress in Andhra Pradesh. There are rumours that the company charged a whopping 300 to 400 Crore from Jagan Mohan Reddy for the 2019 Campaign which Prashant Kishor denies.
