Nitish Kumar expels Prashant Kishor and Pavan Varma for indulging in anti-party activities

Kishor has been annoying the BJP for quite some time, questioning his own party’s decision to support the Citizenship Amendment Bill in Parliament

New Delhi: Janata Dal (United) chief Nitish Kumar expelled political strategist Prashant Kishor and Pavan Varma from the party on Wednesday for indulging in “anti-party activities”.

Kishor, on Tuesday, revolted against Chief Minister of Bihar Nitish Kumar, charging him with having “lied” about his induction into the party and questioning if it was equivalent to admitting capitulation before the BJP.

In a direct attack on the JD(U) national president, Kishor, who joined the party in September 2018 and was elevated to the rank of its national vice-president just weeks later. He lashed out at Nitish Kumar for saying that he was installed into the party at the instance of Union Home Minister and BJP leader Amit Shah.

Kishor has been annoying the BJP for quite some time, questioning his own party’s decision to support the Citizenship Amendment Bill in Parliament. He also insisted that the JD(U) should contest a significantly higher number of seats than the saffron party in the assembly elections in Bihar later this year.
