‘Dekhne me mast thi’ – Twitter slams Bihar’s JDU MLA Gopal Mandal for insensitive comment on gang-raped woman


Gopal Mandal, a JDU MLA from Bihar landed in hot water after his insensitive and outright regressive comments on a woman who was raped. While speaking to the media, Mandal said that “that woman was a mother of four, and looked hot..” The MLA continues to describe the painful ordeal that took place with the woman. 

While doing so, however, she says something that doesn’t sit right with a lot of people on social media. Many have pointed to the sorry state of affairs in Bihar which continues to fall low on every development matric.

Soon internet was filled with a lot of people outright calling out the people of Bihar for choosing MLAs like Gopal Mandal.  An X user by the name of Mr Yadav said, “Same on us that this type of person is ruling Bihar.” 

Another user on Reddit drew a comparison between UP and Bihar saying that both the states were on similar footing a decade ago but now UP has leapfrogged Bihar while the Nitish Kumar-led state has sunken into even deeper trenches when it comes to women’s safety, crime, development and general well being of the state. 

Here’s how social media reacted to Gopal Mandal’s insensitive comments:

Gopal Mandal has a history of controversial statements

Mandal is often in the news for his controversial statements and acts. In September 2021, he was seen walking in train in his underwear when travelling from Patna to Delhi in Tejas Rajdhani. 

In another controversy, he was seen brandishing a pistol in a hospital in Bhagalpur. When asked about the act, he said that it was his style. 

News like these continue to ruin Bihar’s image on the national level. The government and more importantly the people of Bihar should realise how sad it is to have people like these running the state and in charge of making all the decisions around women’s safety, crime control, and the development of the state.
