In his first reaction after being expelled from the JDU, poll strategist Prashant Kishor stated that he would not talk to anyone now. Speaking to Republic TV, he added that he would respond to JDU president and Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar in Bihar.

This latest development comes amid a serious war of words between Kumar and Kishor on Tuesday. Speaking to the media, Kumar stated that it was Kishor’s prerogative to go anywhere he wanted to. Moreover, he revealed that Union Home Minister Amit Shah had referred him to Kumar. Moreover, he warned Kishor that he could not take his position in the party for granted.

Nitish Kumar said, "I have no business, it is his will to go wherever he wants. If he is doing anything he might have some interest. He might want to go somewhere. He came in with Amit Shah's reference. As a strategist he works for few clients. Right now he is working for AAP. You can ask him if he wants to stay or not. If he chooses to stay than it will be within basic foundation of the party.” 

Kishor accuses Bihar CM of lying

In response, Kishor accused the Bihar Chief Minister of lying about the reason of his joining the JDU. Moreover, he termed it as a “poor attempt” to paint him in a negative light. Thereafter, he indirectly hinted that Kumar was not listening to his suggestions.
