‘Jan Suraaj’ marketing campaign convenor Prashant Kishor on Thursday sought to puncture his former mentor Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar’s claims of getting given a face-lift to the state’s roads. Kishor, who’s touring the state as a spade-work for full-time launch into politics, shared on his Twitter deal with a picture of a nationwide freeway passing by means of Madhubani district which, he stated, reminded him of the “jungle raj of Nineties”.
“Nitish ji had not too long ago instructed officers of highway building division that they have to inform the folks concerning the situation of roads within the state”, Kishor tweeted, with barely hid sarcasm.
“Jungle raj of Nineties” was a reference to the husband-wife duo Lalu Prasad and RJD who collectively dominated Bihar for 15 years till the defeat of their RJD by the NDA headed by Kumar in 2005. Lawlessness and abysmal state of roads have been the 2 main counts on which the RJD confronted criticism.
Kishor, who had helped the Lalu-Nitish alliance clinch a victory within the 2015 meeting polls and formally joined the JD(U), then headed by Kumar, as his quantity two a few years later, now feels that the 2 leaders have let the state down. Having given up his profession which gave him the chance to rub shoulders with the who’s who of Indian politics, Kishor has come out with the promise of transformational, bottom-up politics in his residence state.
Though no response got here from the state’s ruling dispensation on Kishor’s tweet, the Union Ministry for Street Transport and Highways reacted to a newspaper report that the IPAC founder had shared.
“The work on NH talked about within the article might be finished by NHAI. Nonetheless, the highway is but to be handed over by the State Govt. The work on the stated venture will start in two weeks,” the ministry tweeted. By the way, Kishor had shot to fame after handing Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s stupendously profitable election marketing campaign of 2014 which noticed the then Gujarat Chief Minister steering the BJP to a convincing majority within the Lok Sabha.
