Formally speak about my future plans on February 11, says former JD (U) leader Prashant Kishor

Former Janata Dal (United) leader Prashant Kishor has rubbished the claims that he would join Trinamool Congress after being expelled from JD(U).

He said he will take a decision on his future after February 11, which is the date of announcement of Delhi Assembly poll results.

Earlier, Prashant Kishor and Pavan K Varma were expelled from Nitish Kumar’s party following their stand on the citizenship law. Both the leaders have been vocal in their criticism of the controversial Citizenship Amendment Act and have been talking about its possible misuse to harass people when seen in context of the National Register of Citizens.

The same was also conveyed to their former boss whose JD (U) had supported the Bill in the parliament last month. Kishor had continuously egged on the Congress to stall the implementation of the CAA in states ruled by the Sonia Gandhi-led party.

Prashant Kishor, who was the vice president JDU since 2018, was seen as Bihar chief minister Nitish Kumar’s number two. Whereas Varma held the general secretary’s post.

Poll strategist Kishor was quick to respond to the development. His “thank you” tweet included “best wishes” for the chief minister of Bihar.
