Bihar News: Gopal Mandal, a powerful and senior MLA for JDU who is frequently in the news for his views, is back in the spotlight. This time, even bystanders gasped when they saw him holding his legally owned pistol in the hospital. He responded in Angika when questioned why he was walking about with a revolver in public, “Hath ma lay ke naya chalbait bhitri ma lay ke chalbai.” The implication was that you would keep the gun in your waist if you did not carry it in your hand.

BJP Accuses Ruling JDU MLA of Bringing Firearms to Hospital, Sparks Controversy
On social media, a video of him walking about holding a weapon is becoming viral. The grand coalition government is the subject of this BJP attack. According to BJP spokesperson Arvind Kumar Singh, ‘MLAs from the ruling party bring firearms to the hospital in Bhagalpur. To intimidate the doctors into not blowing the whistle, they had brought revolvers with them somewhere. Tejashwi Yadav, minister of health, is not trusted by the JDU MLA. She had no faith that the doctor could adequately care for her grandchild. He thus seized a handgun and threatened the people and the medical professionals. The governing party in Bihar is currently employing revolvers in its job. They have no faith in the law. Tejashwi Yadav, the minister of health, needs to take note of this. Can you file a lawsuit? Do you have this much courage?’
