Former Janata Dal-United spokesperson Ajay Alok said on January 29 that Prashant Kishor is not a trustworthy person. Hitting out at him, Alok pointed out how the JDU national vice president straddles across parties in his capacity as a political strategist.
Taking to Twitter, the Bihar minister wrote: “Prashant Kishor could not win the trust of Modi Ji or Nitish Ji. He works for the Aam Admi Party, stays in touch with Congress leader Rahul Gandhi, helps West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee. How can anyone trust a person like him?
He went on to draw a parallel between Kishor and the pathogen coronavirus and said: “We are happy this #coronavirus is leaving us; he can go wherever he wants to.”
Alok’s response came in retaliation to Prashant Kishor’s tweet about Bihar Chief Minister and JDU leader Nitish Kumar’s “lies about why Kishor was inducted into the party”.
Kumar said that Prashant Kishor could join the JDU only because Union Home Minister Amit Shah -- with whom he was engaged in a verbal spat over the Citizenship Amendment Act – had recommended so.
