On Saturday, political strategist Prashant Kishor expressed his views on the current state of the INDIA bloc, stating that the leaders' activities like drinking tea at luxury hotels and holding press conferences have little impact on the ground. He predicted that there would be a lot of political bickering in the coming days due to internal strife within the INDIA bloc.
Kishor highlighted the importance of setting a narrative, emphasizing that social and political status on the ground has no impact unless there is a clear issue, face, and organization. He suggested that when no efforts are made, it leads to a natural downfall, and people tend to distance themselves.
Referring to the first meeting of the INDIA bloc held in Patna eight months ago, Kishor mentioned that questions arose about whether Nitish Kumar is a prime ministerial candidate or not, and there was no clarity on this matter from the INDIA bloc. He pointed out that in the last six months, not a single public meeting of the INDIA bloc has taken place, raising questions about its ability to garner nationwide support.
