The man behind Nitish

aiming for the top post

by-the-way-The-man-behind-Nitish-may2016The actual strategist behind the success of Nitish Kumar is RCP Singh and not Prashant Kishore, as is widely believed. The Grand Alliance in Bihar was Singh’s idea. The schemes and promises that paid Kumar the maximum electoral dividends were devised and discussed among the top leadership of Bihar by Singh, including giving cycles to, and making education compulsory for girls, ensuring women empowerment, promising a ban on liquor once he became CM, and so on. Kishore is a technocrat who just implemented what he was instructed to do. Singh, a 1984 batch IAS officer from the UP cadre, but originally from Bihar, took voluntary retirement from the civil services in 2010 to work with Kumar. A Rajya Sabha member, he is one of Kumar’s main pillars of strength and is all set to be re-nominated to the Upper House. Out of the two vacancies that the JD(U) will have in June, one seat will go to Singh and the other may go to Sharad Yadav. Singh is now working hard towards making Nitish Kumar the Prime Minister in 2019.
