Lalu defends Shahabuddin's statement on Bihar CM

RJD supremo Lalu Prasad Yadav on Monday came out in defence of tainted RJD leader Mohammad Shahabuddin over his controversial statement on Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar. Defending Shahabuddin, Lalu said the Siwan leader has said nothing wrong in his interaction with media. “Shahabuddin has said nothing like this, he has said that Lalu Ji is his leader. Nitish Kumar has no problem with this,” Lalu said while speaking to reporters. Soon after being released from jail on September 10 after 11 years, the controversial RJD leader had described Nitish Kumar as the ‘chief minister of circumstances’ and that RJD supremo Lalu Prasad was his only leader.
