“Kumar fought tooth and nail to safe a decent share of seats for his JD(U) by blackmailing the BJP with the assistance of Prashant Kishor, whom he has made his get together’s nationwide vice-president. Kishor has pals in all events and had given the BJP the trace that Kumar was prepared to modify sides if he didn’t get his due within the NDA”, Tiwary alleged.
“Nonetheless, in relation to giving Kushwaha his due, Kumar has completely different requirements. Does his authorities not benefit from the help of RLSP MLAs.
