CPI-ML (Liberation) calls upon people to intensify agitation for cancellation of Shahabuddin's bail

PATNA: CPI-ML (Liberation) on Monday demanded immediate cancellation of bail of Siwan strongman Mohammad Shahabuddin and also called upon people of Bihar to intensify their agitation to press for re-arrest of the former RJD MP who walked out of Bhagalpur jail on September 10 after Patna high court granted him bail in a murder case on September 7 this year.
In a resolution passed at its 10th state convention being held at Sasaram, about 160 km south from the state capital, the party also drew attention of the public towards double yardstick being adopted by the administration for hardened criminals and political activists. 

"At one hand person like Shahabuddin, who is known as substitute of terror and crime, is getting bail and at the same time political activists like Satyadev Ram, MLA from Darauli, and the Inquilabi Naujawan Sabha chief Amarjeet Kushwaha are kept in jail on the basis of fake cases," one of the nine resolutions passed at the convention reads. 

The party further called upon people to agitate for early release of Satyadev Ram and Amarjeet Kushwaha from jail. The three-day convention, which will conclude on September 21, began with inaugural address by the party's national general secretary Dipankar Bhattacharya. In his address, Bhattacharya expressed concern over the recent release of Shahabuddin from jail and demanded immediate cancellation of his bail. 

"These days, Shahabuddin is openly admitting that he took the side of feudal elements in Siwan to eliminate forces like CPI-ML. The government should take necessary steps to cancel bail of such people," Bhattacharya said while addressing the delegates at the convention. Over 700 delegates from different parts of Bihar and the country are participating in the convention, named as 'Samajik Parivartan Jan-sammelan' .

The CPI-ML and Shahabuddin are rivals in Siwan especially after killing of some of its workers allegedly at the behest of the former MP. In another resolution, the party expressed its serious concern over increasing incidents of feudal atrocities against members of Dalit communities in Bihar and recounted how three members of Dalit community were recently murdered in Begusarai district and how a Dalit youth in Paroo block of Muzaffarpur district was humiliated by forced urinating in his mouth. The party also condemned the incident of terror attack at Uri and welcomed the "complete elimination of saffron forces" in the recent election of JNU Students' Union.
