Shahabuddin's bail cancellation was necessary to curb 'jungle raj' in Bihar: Paswan


RAMVILASWelcoming the cancellation of ex-RJD Parliamentarian Mohammad Shahabuddin's bail by the Supreme Court, Lok Janshakti Party president Ram Vilas Paswan today said it was necessary to curb 'jungle raj' in Bihar. He said the Bihar government did not present the justification properly due to which Shahabuddin had got bail from the Patna High Court.

"Keeping in view the comments of Apex Court, Chief Minister Nitish Kumar should apologise to the people of the state," the Union Food and Consumer Affairs Minister said. Expressing his response over cancellation of ban on liquor in Bihar by the Patna High Court, Mr Paswan said that it was a personal defeat for the Chief Minister. "A number of shortcomings in the policy were left intentionally. It was not drafted honestly and targeted to achieve publicity only," he asserted. Mr Paswan said the verdict has made it clear that the intention behind the making of Prohibition law was not fair.
