Since early in the March of this year, a room in 7, Strand Road in Patna (a nerve centre of Nitish Kumar ‘ s election campaign) , a team of about 300 graduates from the premier institutes (IIT, IIM, NLUs etc) of India worked together for the victory of Nitish Kumar led Mahagatbhandan.

Indian Political Action Committee (IPAC) headed by Prashant Kishore had earlier worked for Narendra Modi’s Lok Sabha campaign in 2013-14 as Citizen’s Accountable Governance (CAG) -the leftover CAG flowed into IPAC.

Prashant worked as a public health Professional for 10 years including one and half  year in Bihar. His father, who retired as a doctor in Bihar, didn’t speak to him for six months after Prashant told him  he was leaving his well paying job at the United Nations to explore his skills as an election strategist and planner.

He was the lead choreographer and conceriver of the CAG and now he runs IPAC. He did a stint in Africa just before he resigned from his job in December 11, 2011.He also contributed to Modi’s Gujrat 2012 assembly campaign.  He is better know for the Hi-tech projection of Modi in 3-D and “Chai -pe- Charcha”. Without distractions of party and ideology,  his core team worked on a strategy that focused on Brand Nitish.

Not only in India, even in Tanzania, where elections just got over, IPAC provided consultancy services to the Chama-Cha Manpinduzi (CCM) party. He is  brilliant political strategy consultant which has made him a Brand in himself.
