The meeting has triggered speculation regarding Nitish Kumar leading the united opposition as the PM Candidate in the 2024 general elections.
Previously, the two were involved in a critical spat with Kishor mocking Janta Dal (United) leader’s initiative to unite the opposition and form an alliance against the ruling BJP.
After this, Kumar too take a dig at Kishor during a press conference in the national capital Delhi as he said that the political strategist’s statements lack credibility, and further asked if he even knows anything about the political and social factors in Bihar.
“Vo uska dhandha hai (This is his business). Let him do what he wants to do in Bihar. His statements have no meaning. Does he know ABC of what has been done in the state since 2005?”, he was quoted as saying by ABP News.
