Poll strategist Prashant Kishor slams party boss Nitish Kumar for supporting CAB


PATNA: Poll strategist and JD-U vice-president Prashant Kishor is hugely annoyed with party boss, Bihar chief minister Nitish Kumar for supporting the contentious Citizenship (Amendment) Bill (CAB).

A day after he said the CAB “discriminates right of citizenship on the basis of religion”, Kishor today expressed surprise over the way the JD-U chose to support the Bill in complete disregard of the people who reposed their faith in the parry in 2015.

In 2015, the JD-U which is headed by Nitish Kumar was a part of the three-party Grand Alliance—the other two parties being the Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) and the Congress—which got landslide victory in the assembly elections. The JD-U tasted victory because it was part of the bigger alliance which had huge support base among the Muslims.

It was because of the support of its two major allies, the JD-U had won good number of seats in the 2015 assembly elections and saved itself from being decimated, say political experts.

Strangely, however, Nitish Kumar walked out of the Grand Alliance midway and formed his new government with the BJP which was mandated to sit in the Opposition.

Kishor has now tried to remind the chief minister as to how the JD-U would have been left nowhere but for the 2015 election victory.
