“JD(U) Was Offered 17 Seats In 2019 Elections To Pull Out Of NDA”: Prashant Kishor

Nitish Kumar

Poll strategist Prashant  Kishor has said Nitish Kumar’s Janata Dal (United) was offered 17 seats during the 2019 Lok Sabha elections.

While interacting with the media in Bihar’s Gopalganj, Kishor said when the seats were allocated, it was decided the JD(U) would quit the NDA (National Democratic Alliance).

Further, Kishor slammed Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar and said the latter refused to pull out of the NDA after Narendra Modi returned as the Prime Minister for the second term.

Earlier last month, Prashant Kishor claimed he had told Nitish Kumar about the alliance with Rashtriya Janata Dal in March 2022. Kishor also said that Kumar had invited him to join the ‘Mahagathbandhan’.

“Nitish Kumar chose Tejashwi Yadav because he knew after 2025, he wouldn’t be the chief minister and wanted the condition of Bihar to turn worse, as then people would think Nitish Kumar was better and then choose him again.

He wants to continue his legacy. That’s why he does not want someone better than him to come to power,” Prashant Kishor was quoted as saying by the news agency, ANI.
