Patna, May 7 (). In Bihar, the interest of retired senior IPS officers in politics is increasing. Karunasagar, who retired as the DGP of Tamil Nadu, joined the RJD and 12 senior IPS officers on Sunday joined the Prashant Kishor (PK)-led Jan Suraj Abhiyan.
These retired officers, who had served in various states and retired from the post of DIG to DGP, went to the office of Jan Suraj Abhiyan at Pataliputra Colony and took primary membership.
These include Jitendra Mishra (Samastipur), Ashok Kumar (Siwan), Rakesh Kumar Mishra (Saharsa) and S.K. Paswan (Vaishali), who are all retired DGP rank officers, while Umesh Singh (Begusarai) and Anil Singh (Supaul) have retired as IGPs.
Also Shiv Kumar Jha (Supaul), C.P. Kiran (Patna), Mohammad Rehman Momin (Bhojpur), K.B. Singh (Saran), Shankar Jha and Dilip Mishra, who all retired as DIGs, also joined the Jan Suraj Abhiyan.
Political strategist Prashant Kishor started the Jan Suraj campaign from West Champaran on October 2, 2022 and has covered a distance of more than 3,000 km so far. He is getting good support. Afaq Ahmed has already won the Saran teachers’ MLC seat this year with Kishor’s support.
