Anubrata Mandal, also known as Kesto Da, is an politics of India politician and the current president of the Birbhum district Trinamool Congress[1]& the Chairman of West Bengal State Rural Development Authority.[2][3]

Personal life

Mandal was born in Birbhum during the 1960s. He is one of the founders of the Trinamool Congress in Birbhum. He is a controversial figure in West Bengal.[4]

It was claimed by Trinamool leaders that he has Hypoxia (medical) for which he has to carry oxygen with him.[5] Mandal has supported other Trinamool leaders in political campaigns for the election.[4]

His famous slogan Khela Hobe[6] has made a big impact in 2021 West Bengal Legislative Assembly elections also all over people of Bengal are using this slogan.[7][8]

Political controversy

Mondal became embroiled in political controversy at the time the Trinamool Congress came to power. During the panchayat elections of July 2013, he publicly encouraged Trinamool supporters to hurl bombs at the police and burn down the houses of independent candidates.[2][9]

Opposition parties charged that Mandal's speeches strongly provoked Trinamool supporters, resulting in the murder of Ghosh. The chief minister of West Bengal, Mamata Banerjee, supported Mandal, calling him "an efficient organizer" and vowing to "defend him to the end".[10] The judicial panel investigating Ghosh's death suspended all proceedings in the case until mid-May, after local elections.[11]

Dipankar Datta, the justice of the Calcutta High Court, asked for the explanation from police chief DGP G.M.P. Reddy as to why Mandal has not been arrested.[9] Datta said that the SIT (Special Investigation Team) is afraid to proceed against Mandal because of Mandal's support from the chief minister.[11]

While speaking at a party event in Katwa, Burdwan in November 2013, Mandal is reported to have said, "If anyone threatens Trinamool supporters, then our workers will also attack their houses at night. Mandal also reportedly threatened to chop off the hands of Indian National Congress candidates, although a party official denies he ever said that.
