- In 2011, when he was a student at MMK College in Bandra, he spent a lot of money on the college fest, Lakshya to turn it into a major event. He organized lunch for around 600 students in Taj Lands End. He also booked three rooms in the hotel where students were seen playing guitar and casino. The expenses were paid by Zeeshan. To promote the event, there were 8 hoardings on 20 buses advertising “Zeeshan Siddique presents Lakshya 2011.” In an interview, he said that his father was paying the expenses and he had no idea about it. Later, his father said that he did not tell the college to advertise his son and he did not want his son to be involved in any controversy. In the interview, he further added,
I studied at MMK College, and I’m contributing to its event because of my attachment to the institute. Is it wrong to spend money for a good cause? Regarding Zeeshan, I never asked the college authorities or Lakshya organising committee to promote him.”
- In 2021, the Bombay High Court ordered the Maharastra government to look into the Covid-19 vaccines provided by actor Sonu Sood and Zeeshan to the public. In a statement, the HC said, ‘these people (celebs) projected themselves as some kind of Messiah, without verifying if the drugs were spurious or if the supply was legal. In this case, we ask the state govt to scrutinise their actions.’ The State Advocate General Ashutosh Kumbhakoni in a statement said that Zeeshan was provided with the vaccines by a charitable trust named BDR Foundation which did not have permission to supply them. Later, the Maharashtra government said the Mazgaon Magistrate’s Court registered a case against the trust and its trustees. Actor Sonu Sood received the drugs from several pharmacies inside the private Lifeline Care Hospital in Goregaon.
- In 2021, he wrote a letter to Sonia Gandhi complaining about the “ill-treatment” he faced by Mumbai chief Bhai Jagtap during a public protest. In a letter, Siddique said that during a morcha at Dadar, Jagtap abused him in the presence of senior leaders. In the letter, he said,
Before the protest, a delegation of leaders went to Dr BR Ambedkar’s memorial Raj Gruha to pay respects to the architect of the Constitution of India. Senior leader KC Venugopalji and HK Patilji had joined the delegation. Despite being one of the only four Mumbai legislators representing the party, my name was not on the list. Being an elected representative, when the police officers were willing to let me go [to the memorial], Jagtapji rushed out and told the personnel not to allow me to be a part of the delegation. When I requested that he should protect me as he is my president, he used foul language for me. ‘Go to hell, if you are feeling bad about it’, he said to me (sic).”
- In 2022, he took to Twitter and alleged the Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA), BMC, and Slum Rehabilitation Authority in the Bandra East area of corruption charges in the projects. In a Twitter post, he said,
H/east ward is full of corruption, a thorough investigation needs to be done on all the works carried out by the MMRDA and BMC in the last 2.5 years. BKC smart parking, roads full of potholes, the SWM scam, the badly planned Cycling track, SRA scam. I can go on & on about things!”
- In 2022, when the Maharashtra government announced that it would make 300 houses in Mumbai for the MLAs who hail from rural areas, Zeeshan took to Twitter to talk about the decision taken by the Maharashtra government and criticized it. In a Twitter post, the government said that these houses would be allotted to the MLAs who are from outside Mumbai and have difficulty buying or renting flats in Mumbai. According to the opposite party, the houses should not be given to the MLAs as they have a monthly allowance and can afford a flat. In a Twitter post, he said,
I don’t need a house from the Maharashtra government when thousands of people in my Vandre east assembly aren’t getting houses and are living in dilapidated conditions. Request Maharashtra CM and Jitendra Awhad ji to spend this money to build their houses instead of giving houses to MLA’s.”
