In the year 1974, Nand Kishore became the President of Patna City Student Struggle Committee while being in the JP movement and on the call of late socialist leader Jayaprakash Narayan, he boycotted the final examination of B.Sc. Nand Kishore was elected to the Patna Municipal Corporation as a Councillor in 1978 and was elected as Patna's Deputy Mayor in 1982.

After this, he was elected as Patna Metropolitan President in 1983 and BJP 'Yuva Morcha' Bihar President 1990. In the year 1995, he contested the assembly elections from the eastern region of Patna and was elected as an MLA.
