As the countdown begins for the Lok Sabha election, the bitter fight between the political parties are turning out to be rhetorical in nature as JDU vice president Prashant Kishor has now criticized Chandrababu Naidu’s remark of ‘Bihari dacoit.’
There have been media reports about Andhra Pradesh CM Chandrababu Naidu accusing poll strategist Kishor for deleting lakhs of names from the voter list of Andhra Pradesh and also giving ‘criminal advices’ to YSR Congress.
An imminent defeat can rattle even the most seasoned politicians. So I’m not surprised with the baseless utterances of @ncbn— Prashant Kishor (@PrashantKishor) March 19, 2019
Sirji rather than using derogatory language that shows your prejudice & malice against Bihar, just focus on why people of AP should vote for you again. https://t.co/CYSJNRJ43W
In reaction, Prashant Kishor tweeted saying, “An imminent defeat can rattle even the most seasoned politician. So I am not surprised with the baseless utterances of @ncbn (Mr Naidu's Twitter handle). Sirji, rather than using derogatory language that shows your prejudice and malice against Bihar, just focus on why the people of Andhra Pradesh should vote for you again.”
TDP chief Naidu had accused Telangana CM K Chandrashekhar Rao and Prashant Kishor of conspiring against him and said, “K Chandrashekar Rao is doing criminal politics. He is grabbing the MLAs of Congress and TDP. Bihari dacoit Prasant Kishore has removed lakhs of votes in Andhra Pradesh.”
Prashant Kishor, who shot to fame after being the chief poll strategist for Nitish Kumar and PM Narendra Modi, was made the vice president of the JDU and is leading the party from the front. As the Lok Sabha election approaches, the poll strategist would be churning out ways and techniques to join the number game and propel his party to the winning line against the proposed ‘Mahagathbandhan’ of Congress.
