Time to fight Covid-19 not elections: Prashant Kishor to Nitish Kumar


PTI, Jul 11, 2020, 2:03 PM IST

New Delhi: Poll strategist Prashant Kishor took a swipe at Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Saturday, saying this is time to fight the coronavirus not elections and that he should not endanger people’s lives in a “hurry” to hold the assembly polls.

“The coronavirus situation in Bihar is worsening like it is in many other states of the country. But a big part of government machinery and resources are busy making preparation for the polls.

“Nitish Kumar ji, this isn’t time to fight elections but the coronavirus. Don’t endanger people’s lives in this hurry to hold the polls,” he tweeted.

Kishor, once a confidant of the JD(U) president before he turned a critic and was expelled from the party, joins leaders like LJP chief Chirag Paswan and RJD’s Tejashwi Yadav in suggesting that the Bihar assembly polls should be deferred due to the pandemic.
