Prashant Kishor is going to join the JD (U) State Executive Committee in Patna today in the presence of Nitish Kumar in Janata Dal-United (JDU). It is reported that Bihar Chief Minister and JDU chief Nitish Kumar will get him the party’s membership in the JDU’s state executive meeting. It was reported on last week that Prashant Kishor could start active political innings, although he himself refused later, but has tweeted this today by tweeting it.

4- After working with UNICEF, in the year 2011, Prashant returned to India and completed Gujarat’s famous event called ‘Vibrant Gujarat’.
