Prashant Kishor announced that he will be travelling across Bihar for 100 days and campaign against the misgovernance under Nitish rule.

Targeting Nitish Kumar, Kishor said the ideological position of the JD(U) was the main cause of conflict with the chief minister and that the campaign, starting from February 20, will reach out to people who believe there is need of new leadership in Bihar.

Prashant Kishor in the press conference said that:

“There have been many discussions between me and Nitish ji about the party’s ideology. Nitish ji always told us that the party can never leave the ideals of Gandhi ji… But now the party is with those who are soft on Gandhi’s killer Nathuram Godse… For me Gandhi ji and Godse cannot go hand-in-hand,” Mr Kishor said.
