Nitish appoints Prashant Kishor as JD-U Vice President

New Delhi, Oct 16 (IANS) Bihar Chief Minister and Janata Dal-United President Nitish Kumar on Tuesday named Prashant Kishor as the party Vice President, a month after the election strategist joined the party.

“He (Kishor) has been appointed Vice President of the party,” JD-U spokesperson and Secretary General K.C. Tyagi told IANS.

The 41-year-old former UN official, who founded the Indian Political Action Committee (I-Pac), successfully ran the Nitish Kumar-led Grand Alliance campaign during the 2015 Bihar Assembly election.

The Grand Alliance comprised the JD-U, Lalu Prasad’s RJD and the Congress and it humbled the BJP-led alliance.

Thereafter, Nitish Kumar named Kishor as his Adviser, giving him a Cabinet rank.
