Patna: With a murder in Gaya involving a Janata Dal – U MLC and another in Siwan involving a journalist with fingers pointing to jailed former MP Mohammed Shahabuddin, even Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) leaders, the supposed allies of Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, have started to question the CM's leadership while asking for his resignation.

RJD MP Mohammed Taslimuddin, in view of the rising crime in the state, on Friday, asked Kumar to admit he had failed in his endeavor to keep crime under check and resign from his position on moral grounds.

"The Chief Minister is ultimately responsible for the safety and security of the citizens. Nitish Kumar should realize his failure and resign from his post," Taslimuddin said following a meeting of the party leaders at the residence of Rabri Devi on Friday.

Another RJD leader, Prabhunath Singh, while not asking for the CM's resignation, held him accountable for allowing jailed Siwan don Shahabuddin to hold 'durbar' in his prison cell.

"That he (Shahabuddin) was able to hold a durbar in the jail is an example of administrative failure. What were the officials doing at the time when all this was happening," Singh asked. He, however, urged everyone not to hold a media trial of the imprisoned Siwan don saying the law would take its own course and guilty would ultimately be punished.

Meanwhile, at the meeting of the RJD Parliamentary Committee, party members authorized party President Lalu Prasad Yadav to pick candidates for the upcoming Bihar Legislative Council elections at seven seats on June 10 and five Rajya Sabha seats for June 11 polls.
