Patna: Election strategist-turned-politician Prashant Kishor, who is the new national Vice President of Bihar’s ruling JD-U, said on Tuesday he will not contest any elections for the next 10 years to concentrate on bringing the state out of the “undeveloped” tag.
He would aim all his efforts to strengthen the Janata Dal-United party that he joined in September, Kishor said ending all speculation as he addressed the youth members of his party. “I will not contest any elections, including for the Lok Sabha or the Rajya Sabha, for the next 10 years... and serve Bihar.
My goal is to work to help Bihar get into the 10 developed states of the country,” said the founder of the Indian Political Action Committee (IPAC), who was appointed JD-U’s No.2 on October 16. (IANS)
