Just a few hours after Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Friday asserted that he hooked up “no significance” to his administration’s uncharitable evaluation by election strategist Prashant Kishor, the latter has hit again.
Taking to Twitter, Kishor wrote, “Nitish ji is correct – the reality is necessary and the reality is that after 30 years of Lalu-Nitish, Bihar is the poorest and most backward state.” “A brand new considering and energy is required to vary Bihar and that is doable solely with the collective efforts of the individuals there,” he added.
Earlier in the day, Nitish Kumar slammed Prashant Kishor and said his opinion was “not important” and also the people of the state know the work his government has done.
“You people know whether we have done good in Bihar or not. Someone’s opinion is not important. What is important is the truth. People know our work. You all know what work has been done and how much work has been done,” Nitish Kumar said. “Since you know, I request you to give the response yourself. When someone says anything, we should respond to the comments but in this case, you can do that yourself, since you know what the reality is,” he added.
This had come after the election strategist on Thursday said the last 30 years under Lalu Prasad Yadav and Nitish Kumar had left Bihar the most backward and poor state in the country. He said if the state has to come in the category of advanced states, it cannot reach there walking on the same path as in the past 10-15 years. He contended that Kumar’s administration had brought in economic growth but did not succeed in propelling Bihar for a great leap forward, a reason why the state was still at the bottom of the country in terms of various development indices.
