I have gun and explosives, will start politics of murder: Bihar JD(U) MLA Gopal Mandal

Patna: Janata Dal (United) MLA Gopal Mandal has stoked a huge controversy with his outraging comments saying that he will again start politics of murder.

While addressing a poetic conference in Naugachia area, the JD(U) lawmaker said, “I have gun and explosives, will protect you.”

The JD(U) leader said, though all the people who have gathered didn't vote for him, he will still protect them as he has power, gun and explosives.

He said, "Main ab hatya ki rajniti hi karunga aur hatya karwaunga"(I will do politics of murder and order murders)," adding that, "Pahle bhi hatya karta tha, ab bhi karoonga (I used to commit murders in the past, now I will murder again).

The statement is sure to bring in huge embarrassment for Bihar Chief Minister Kumar. Meanwhile, Mandal has been suspended from the party.

Mandal is a JD(U) MLA from Gopalpur in Bhagalpur district of Bihar.

Not only this, Mandal also differed with Chief Minister Nitish Kumar's decision of prohibiting liquor from April 01.

JD-U spokesperson Ajay Alok distanced the party from Mandal's remarks, saying such remarks were condemnable and should be avoided by Mandal.

The JD (U) MLA is not new to controversies. Earlier, Mandal had come down heavily on his opponents at a function organised in connection with a cricket match at Naughachia bazar saying, "I will chop off the tongue of people trying to threaten my supporters."

In the initial days of the grand secular alliance coming to power, he had threatened a Deputy Superintendent of Police level officer to throw him in the Ganges from Naugachia road bridge for stopping his car, which had jumped queue during a traffic snarl in December last.
