Election strategist Prashant Kishor sealed his meeting with Bihar CM after speculation of a possible re-alliance with Nitish Kumar intensified. JD(U) Vice President expelled him from the party on 29 January 2020 for ‘anti-party activities’. While co-founder of IPAC helped several parties including BJP, AAP, TMC, Congress and JDU win elections. However, he left the election strategy last year itself. On 5 May he unveiled his game plan for the next few months, which would include talks with 18,000 people and a 3000-km-long padyatra, which could result in the formation of a political party.
On September 13, about the meeting with Bihar CM Nitish Kumar, IPAC co-founder Prashant Kishor said, “Nitish Kumar is the Chief Minister of Bihar. I have been working in Bihar since May. Since then we wanted to meet but it could not happen. So it was a courtesy meeting.” Speaking to the media on Thursday, the IPAC co-founder asserted that there has been no change in his stand on the dire situation in Bihar. He also reiterated that he would continue to work on his personal initiatives. During the meeting, Kishor apprised Kumar of his experiences of the last 4-5 months and said that prohibition was not effective on the ground.

Prashant Kishor-Nitish Kumar face to face
For the past few weeks, there is often a war of words between Prashant Kishor and Nitish Kumar. After the election strategist strongly criticized the JD(U)’s decision to return to the Grand Alliance, the Bihar CM had earlier alleged that Prashant had a desire to join hands with the BJP. He had said, “The person who was with me earlier. He didn’t listen to me and kept working with different parties across the country. He can do whatever he wants to do in Bihar. But mere speaking doesn’t do anything. Does he even know the ABC of the work we have done since 2005? He only knows how to preach and make statements, he is expert in this.
Presenting a gloomy scenario for the Grand Alliance in a special interview with Republic TV on 10 September, Prashant Kishor argued, “Bihar has been in a state of constant political uncertainty since Narendra Modi emerged on the national political scene in 2012. . This is the sixth experiment of Nitish ji in relation to government formation since 2012. They’ve rotated around 180 or 360-degrees six times. I don’t think stability (political) will come back. There is no longevity in the current political structure. It can go on for a few days or even months.”
