All eyes on Nitish right now, will he act against Shahabuddin: LJP

New Delhi [India], Sept. 13 (ANI): The Lok Janshakti Party has questioned Chief Minister's inaction towards former Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) strongman Mohammad Shahabuddin who has been commenting on Nitish Kumar and the Bihar Government, saying that his silence towards the entire matter was unexpected.

"JD (U) leaders need to answer as to what action they are going to take against Shahabuddin. All eyes on Nitish. Why is he silent and what action is he going to take," LJP leader Chirag Paswan told ANI.

Meanwhile, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has continued to maintain that Shahabuddin walking free is an indication that 'Jungle-Raj' is back in Bihar and Chief Minister Nitish Kumar can do nothing, but be a mute spectator.

"It's a matter of great concern that the people of Bihar would not have voted for the return of jungle raj to Biharand the way Shahabuddinhas come out and they kind of language he is using for the Chief Minister," BJP leader Nalin Kohli told ANI here.

Emphasising that Nitish has no control over the current situation with Shahabuddin not even considering him as a Chief Minister, Kohli added that it's a matter of confirmation that 'gunda raj and jungle raj' has returned to Bihar and Nitish Kumar is willing to be a mute spectator to what the people are suffering.

However, Nitish gave a terse response to Shahabuddin's comments saying that he came to power only from the mandate of the public of Bihar and that he could not care less about what others said about it.

"I am here because I got the mandate. You'll (media) are wasting your space and time. The entire world knows what is the mandate of the people of Bihar. So, we will go according to the mandate of the public or should we pay attention to what others are saying? I never cared about such issues," Nitish said.

Shortly after getting released, Shahabuddin said "My leader is Lalu Yadav," and dismissed Nitish Kumar as a "Chief Minister of circumstance."

He had been sent to jail in November 2005 in connection with the Murderof Rajiv Ranjan, a prime witness in the Murder of his two brothers Girish Raj and Satish Raj. The brothers had been murdered in Siwan in August 2004. (ANI)
