Poll strategist Prashant Kishor joins Nitish Kumar’s JDU, may contest 2019 Lok Sabha election from Bihar

Poll strategist Prashant Kishor has today joined Nitish Kumar’s Janata Dal and is expected to contest 2019 Lok Sabha elections from Bihar. Kishor is credited with delivering key election win for BJP in 2014 and also for Nitish Kumar in the 2015 Bihar elections.

According to the reports, Prasant Kishor was likely to join the party today at a state executive meet in Patna which was being held to discuss the seat-sharing formula with NDA, for upcoming Lok Sabha elections. Prashant Kishor is also likely to get a ticket to contest in the next Lok Sabha election.

Prashant Kishor shot to fame in 2014, when Kishor’s Citizens for Accountable Governance (CAG) helped BJP with the historic 2014 elections. The innovative ‘Chai pe Charcha’, which became an extremely effective campaigning instrument for BJP was the idea of Kishor. He later worked with the Mahagathbandan in Bihar and is credited to have brought all the opposition parties together in Bihar to script a massive victory of JD(U), RJD and Congress combine in 2015.

Interestingly, Kishor’s election consultancy I-PAC has been working for YSR Congress party’s YS Jaganmohan Reddy from the last two years. Recently, he had hinted of leaving campaignings and had said regarding his interests to “work with the grassroots”. “In 2019, you would not see Prashant Kishore campaigning for anyone in the manner and form in which I have been campaigning in last 4-5 years”, Kishor had said in an interaction with students recently.
