“Nitish Kumar ji, this is just not a time to fight elections, but the coronavirus. Never endanger people’s lives in this hurry to maintain the polls,” he tweeted.
Prashant Kishor, once a confidant of JD(U) main Nitish Kumar, right before he turned a critic and was expelled from the bash, joins leaders like LJP chief Chirag Paswan and RJD’s Tejashwi Yadav in suggesting that the Bihar assembly polls should really be deferred due to the pandemic.
Polls in Bihar are thanks in October-November but the Election Fee has so considerably not produced any official announcement about its timetable.
