RJD returned to power after 10 years with Nitish Kumar in Bihar. After that many frightening incidents had taken place, after which speculations were being made that that round was going to return. Shahabuddin, who is serving a sentence in the acid attack, got bail from the court in the meantime. He was released from Bhagalpur Central Jail in September 2016. Shahabuddin left the Bhagalpur Central Jail with a convoy of 1300 vehicles. During this time his people were breaking the rules.
Nowhere to pay toll tax
The people of Shahabuddin were not paying toll tax anywhere. Along the way, thousands of people were shouting slogans of Veer Shabu. The media was shocked when these pictures of Shahabuddin’s fear came to light. After that, the challenge of saving his image was posed to Nitish Kumar. The then ministers of the Nitish government began to say in suppressed language that all this would not be tolerated.
Leaders do not accept Nitish
On reaching Siwan, Shahabuddin received a grand welcome. After that, during a conversation with the media, Shahabuddin said that we do not consider Nitish Kumar as our leader. The leader is our Lalu Yadav. Shahabuddin made this statement at a time when the Mahagathbandhan government was in Bihar. Shahabuddin’s words were not tolerated by Nitish’s people.
After that the Bihar government has decided that we will go to the Supreme Court to get Shahabuddin’s bail canceled. Prashant Bhushan filed a petition on behalf of Chanda Babu along with the Bihar government in the Supreme Court. Shahabuddin’s bail was canceled after hearing the petition. He was then sent to Tihar Jail.
Statement fell heavy
It is said that Nitish Kumar was very irritated after this statement of Shahabuddin. It was during the reign of Nitish Kumar that Shahabuddin got a grip on him. As soon as the Mahagathbandhan government came in, its status started returning again. Majma was started in Siwan jail. The ministers of the government started going to meet him in jail. There is a discussion in the political corridors of Bihar that the distance between Nitish and Lalu also started increasing after the Shahabuddin scandal.
