The rift between JD(U) and vice- president Prashant Kishor has only sharpened . Kishor’s exit from the party looks imminent sooner than later.
The party has hit back hard at Kishor for his recent comments on CM Nitish Kumar. JD (U) leader Ajay Alok dubbed Prashant Kishor as ‘Coronavirus’, and added that the poll strategist is not a trustworthy man.
“This man is not trustworthy. He could not win the trust of Modiji and Nitishji. He works for AAP, talks to Rahul Gandhi, sits with Mamata didi. Who will trust him?” Alok told ANI.
“We are happy this coronavirus is leaving us, he can go wherever he wants to,” he said.
Bihar chief minister Nitish Kumar, in reference to Kishor, had said people are free to remain in the party or leave if they want.
“Someone wrote a letter I replied to it. Someone is tweeting, let him tweet. What do I have to do with it? One can stay in the party (JD-U) till he wants. He can go if he wants…Do you know how did he join the party? Amit Shah asked me to induct him,” said Kumar, while responding to a media question on Prashant Kishor.
Kishor has more than once made his differences with the party known on the issue of the amended citizenship Act. JDU had supported the legislation in both the Houses of Parliament.Last month, Kishor had told ANI that it is only the Bihar Chief Minister who can tell under what circumstances the party supported the Citizen (Amendment) Bill in the Lok Sabha and the Rajya Sabha.
