Nitish Kumar appoints poll strategist Prashant Kishor as national vice president of JD(U)

Poll strategist Prashant Kishor, who had joined JD(U) last month, has been appointed as national vice president of the JD(U) by Nitish Kumar.

He had joined the JD(U) in September and amidst speculations that he would be contesting the 2019 general assembly elections. Kishor is credited with delivering key election win for BJP in 2014 and also for Nitish Kumar in the 2015 Bihar elections.

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.

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.
