NFN Bureau: Seems Political Strategist and JD(U) Vice President Prashant Kishor is all set to part ways with Bihar CM Nitish Kumar and the party over differences on various issues.
The Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) was the immediate provocation behind the rift between Nitish and Prashant Kishor. PK has been very critical of CAA since the beginning and did not shy away from making his displeasure public.
On Tuesday, Nitish sounded very upset about Prashant Kishor and sought to snub him. He also told the media, “He can leave the party if he wants” while reminding PK again that he was inducted into JD(U) because of Amit Shah.
Prashant Kishor too responded, saying he would come to Bihar soon to answer Nitish Kumar. He also tweeted using strong words against Nitish, calling him a liar.
.@NitishKumar what a fall for you to lie about how and why you made me join JDU!! Poor attempt on your part to try and make my colour same as yours!
And if you are telling the truth who would believe that you still have courage not to listen to someone recommended by @AmitShah?

Speculations are rife that Prashant Kishor may join the Congress and help the party to grow at pan-India level.
