Prashant Kishor Launches 'Baat Bihar Ki' Campaign
Days after his expulsion from the Janata Dal (United), political Strategist Prashant Kishor on Tuesday launched the ‘Baat Bihar Ki’ campaign aimed at making Bihar one of the 10 best states in the country. 

Addressing a press conference, he targeted his ally-turned-foe Nitish Kumar saying the main cause of conflict with the Bihar CM was the ideological positioning of the JD(U) and that the intent of the campaign is to connect with people who believe there is a need of new leadership in Bihar.

“There have been many discussions between me and Nitish ji about the party's ideology. Nitish ji always told us that the party can never leave the ideals of Gandhi ji.... But now the party is siding with those who are soft on Gandhi's killer Nathuram Godse.... For me Gandhi ji and Godse cannot go hand-in-hand," Kishor said.

As part of the campaign against the misgovernance under the Nitish rule, Kishore will be travelling across Bihar for 100 days and push for new leadership in the state.

Prashant Kishor said: "I am not going anywhere and I am here to work for Bihar. I am inviting young people of Bihar who want to see development and work done in Bihar to join me in this campaign, 'Baat Bihar Ki', to build our state."

"I invite all those who want to see a new Bihar that will not rank below all other states on development ratings. I want to see Bihar climb up the state rankings from the current 22 to 10. I want to make Bihar one of the top 10 states. This campaign will be launched on March 20," said Prashant Kishor.

Questioning Nitish Kumar’s governance model, he said: ”You keep talking about how much the state had progressed since the Lalu regime, but it has been 15 years that you are ruling the state. How much has Bihar progressed compared to Maharashtra or Karnataka?"
