Jamshedpur, Oct 10: After several newspapers reported that JMM Minority Cell President Hidayatullah Khan is in contact with a criminal gang, Khan along with senior party leaders protested against the reports and called police of brewing conspiracy against him.
Addressing a press conference on Saturday, Hidyat Khan said, “I am definitely part of a gang and that is JMM gang. It creates doubt in my mind as to where that list was prepared and my name in the list is condemnable”.
Khan further said, “Currently I have a case of election code of conduct and one registered by Roushan Ali’s son, other than this no other case is pending against me”.
JMM leader said that he shut down several illegal businesses in Jugsalai and have written to the state government against several police officers.
To create an atmosphere of mistrust and to stop social workers done this a plan against me.
Present at the press meet JMM District President Ramdas Soren said, from the time Hidayatullah Khan joined JMM not a single FIR has been registered against him.
To get into the mainstream, Khan joined JMM and since then he has been into several societal works.
Soren further said, the step which Police has taken is trying to taint his image. Police should make it public as to which criminal gang is Hidayat part of.
JMM senior leaders would soon meet SSP and take up this matter, Soren added.
