Prashant Kishor gives up campaign duties days ahead of polls


Patna, Mar 29: With elections round the corner, Janata Dal (United) national vice-president Prashant Kishor, announced on Friday that he will not be in-charge of campaigning and management of the party.

"The NDA is fighting strongly in Bihar under the leadership of Modi and Nitish. On part of the JD(U), the responsibilities of poll management and campaign are on the broad shoulders of senior and experienced leader RCP Singh. In this initial stage of my political career, my role is to learn and to cooperate," Kishor tweeted in Hindi.
