Prashant Kishor is absent for long, remove him: BJP
BJP on Tuesday questioned the long absence of election strategist Prashant Kishor, who was assigned by the Bihar government to prepare the state’s vision document, and sought his removal from the post of CM’s advisor on policy and programme implementation.
BJP leader Sushil Kumar Modi told reporters that Kishor has left the work of preparing ‘Bihar @ 2025 vision document’ for which the Bihar government paid Rs 9.31 crore to his ‘Citizen Alliance Pvt Ltd’.
He said Kishor has been devoting time on drawing election strategy for Congress in Uttar Pradesh and Punjab. “After getting Rs 9.31 crore for preparing vision document for the state, Kishor neither prepared the document nor discharged his duty as CM’s advisor,” Modi said while questioning his continuance in the post of advisor.
“Kishor should resign from the post of CM’s advisor or the CM should dismiss him from the key job,” Modi said, adding Chief Minister Nitish Kumar should tell the people as what suggestions he had given for the development of the state in past eight months.
