Must read

PATNA: Celebrated election strategist Prashant Kishor on Thursday announced that he has had his fill as a backroom operator for leading political players of the country and that he now intends to create a platform of like-minded people ‘Jan Suraaj’, aimed at transforming his home state Bihar.
While he brushed aside speculation that he would announce the setting up of a new party, Kishor held out the possibility of Jan Suraaj metamorphosing into a political party at a latter stage.
He said he was in touch with “about 18,000 people” who shared his vision for Bihar. He said he will “try to meet them personally”, before launching a 3,000-km ‘padyatra’ (march) from Gandhi Ashram at Champaran on the Mahatma‘s birthday, October 2.
Kishor came out with an outline of his project, titled ‘Jan Suraaj’, drawing inspiration from Gandhi’s aphorism of “the best politics is right action”, at a crowded press conference here, days after he had announced his decision to go back “to the real masters — the people”.
“A political party can be floated even a few months ahead of elections. Bihar faces none in the next few years,” Kishor said averting pointed questions about his future moves.
BJP spokesman Nikhil Anand dismissed Kishor as a “political broker” who could be a “stepney” or a “safety valve” for more entrenched forces.
