Prashant Kishor, a former political strategist who is now an activist, asked Twitter users for their opinions on Nitish Kumar’s most recent tenure as chief minister of Bihar on Friday. Kishor and Kumar have a history of working together.
On his official Twitter account, Kishor started a poll asking users to respond in Hindi to his question with a yes or no vote.
In the past ten years, Nitish Kumar has attempted to establish a government six times (prayog). Do you believe the people of Bihar will gain this time? Kishor questioned.
With Kumar leaving the Bharatiya Janata Party and joining the Mahagathbandhan, which is made up of the Rashtriya Janata Dal, the Congress, and the Left, the founder of IPAC, a political consultancy group, has expressed skepticism about the new formation that has emerged. He has given up his previous identity to carry out a campaign called Jan Suraaj, which could develop into a political party focused on Bihar.
Kishor, who was a major player in the previous Mahagathbandhan that was formed in 2015 but disintegrated after a few years, has cast doubt on the long-term viability of the massive seven-party coalition.
He had previously held the opinion that the Grand Alliance had the best chance of surviving till the 2024 Lok Sabha elections but was more likely to fall apart before the upcoming assembly elections a year later.
