Celebrating Eid at his native village Pratappur in Siwan on Tuesday after a gap of 12 years, former Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) MP Mohammad Shahabuddin, who was released on bail four days ago, said the Bihar government can take any action against him but he will live in his own style.
“Sarkar agar CCA lagana chahti hai to lagaye, lekin mai apne tarike se jeeta hun (If the government wants to invoke CCA against me, it can but I will live as per my style),” Shahabuddin told media while meeting his supporters.
The opposition BJP has demanded that Crime Control Act (CCA) be slapped against the former RJD MP.
According to reports,there were grand Eid celebrations at his palatial house, where hundreds of his supporters and followers gathered since early morning to meet and greet him.
“Shahabuddin has celebrated Bakrid in a big way along with his 83-year-old ailing father, wife Heena Shahab, brothers and sisters, other members of the family, close relatives, villagers and supporters,” a RJD leader said.
Shahabuddin was granted bail by the Patna high court on Saturday in connection with the murder of a witness in the killing of two brothers in Siwan.
Meanwhile RJD chief Lalu Prasad on Sunday downplayed the controversy created by Shahabuddin’s comment that Nitish Kumar is chief minister of circumstances, saying that so-called “turmoil” was a media creation and asserted that Kumar is the leader of the ruling grand alliance of the JD-U, RJD and Congress.
