Prasant Kishore made JD(U) vice-president

The Janata Dal (United) president, Nitish Kumar, has made Prashant Kishore as the party’s vice president, effectively making him the second most powerful person in the party.

Kishore, who has worked for a number of parties as a poll strategist, recently joined the ruling party in Bihar. He is seen to be close to Kumar, also the state’s Chief Minister.

The party spokesperson, KC Tyagi, said Kishore’s appointment would help it reach out to social segments out of its traditional supporters.
