Plagiarism case against Prashant Kishor for 'Baat Bihar Ki' campaign

Feb 27, 2020 19:08 IST

A case has been filed against election strategist-turned-politician Prashant Kishor for alleged plagiarism in his 'Baat Bihar Ki' campaign launched in Patna last week. Kishor is accused of allegedly using content developed by Shashwat Gautam, a data analytics coordinator with the Congress. Gautam has also named as accused his former aide Osama, who was privy to the content and whom he suspects of making the same available to Kishor after parting ways. Gautam before joining the Congress served as an adviser to Chief Minister Nitish Kumar where he worked with Kishor also. Kishor had launched his campaign on February 18, a month after being sacked from the JD(U).
