Patna, Aug 19: Political strategist turned activist Prashant Kishor on Friday sought a feedback from Twitterati on the latest term in office of Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar with whom he has had a long collaboration.

"This is the sixth experiment (prayog) by Nitish Kumar in the last 10 years towards government formation. Do you think, this time, the people of Bihar stand to benefit?", asked Kishor, according to news agency PTI.

The founder of IPAC, a political consultancy group, who has given up his previous avatar to carry out a campaign "Jan Suraaj", which could evolve into a Bihar-centric political party, has been skeptical of the new formation that has come into being with Nitish Kumar dumping the BJP and joining the

"Mahagathbandhan" comprising RJD, Congress and the Left.

Kishor, who had played a key role in the previous "Mahagathbandhan" which came into being in 2015 but came apart within a couple of years, has been raising doubts over the durability of the gigantic, seven-party coalition.

He has been of the view that the Grand Alliance could, at the most, survive till the 2024 Lok Sabha polls, but was likely to unravel before assembly elections that would be due a year later.

While refraining from BJP's "return of jungle raj" chorus, Kishor has nonetheless advised caution in assessing the new coalition's impact on national politics.
