Clearing the air? Understanding Prashant Kishor’s tweet


Patna, Mar 30: Prashant Kishor's announcement that he will not be in charge of campaigning in Bihar has set rumour mills ringing.

There are two versions to the story. While one points towards an internal rift in the party, the other states that he was just clearing the air. Reports say that he was being seen as a substitute to Rajya Sabha member and senior leader, R C N Singh.

A report in the Hindustan Times stated that his proximity to JD(U) president and Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar was seen as him being a substitute to Singh. However that is not the case in the party and hence he decided clear the air so that the blame did not fall on him later.

Further the report also stated that Kishor's inclusion in the three member team to explore the party's prospects beyond Bihar was a sign that he should not meddle in Bihar politics which is to be decided by the other leaders.

There are also reports suggesting that he is in Andhra to work on Jagan Mohan Reddy's campaign. He is likely to help the Shiv Sena in its campaign following the completion of the assignment with Reddy.
