In an embarrassing moment, an MLA of Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar's party was reported by his fellow passengers on a train journey for walking around in his underwear.

Gopal Mandal was seen in bare minimum clothing in a train compartment when he was travelling from Patna to New Delhi on the Tejas Rajdhani Express.

Mandal along with two of his aides boarded coach number A1 (Second AC) and their seat numbers were 13, 14 and 15 and allegedly removed his clothes and went to the washroom in a vest and underwear stating an upset stomach.

Other passengers strongly objected to the MLA's display, and it almost led to a fight. The Railway Police Force (RPF) and the ticket examiner stepped in to control the situation.

A complaint was raised by passengers with the RPF officials after Mandal created a ruckus, who was then shifted to another coach of the train.

"Fellow passengers complained about the behaviour of MLA. The police and the ticket examiner persuaded both parties," said Rajesh Kumar, Chief Public Relation Officer (CPRO), East Central Railway.

As photos and videos of the MLA in his underwear vest went viral, Gopal Mandal issued a clarification stating he had an upset stomach.

“I was only wearing the undergarments as my stomach was upset during the journey: Gopal Mandal, JDU MLA, who was seen in undergarments while travelling from Patna to New Delhi on Tejas Rajdhani Express train yesterday,” Gopal Mandal told ANI.

However, soon after his pictures and the clarification video went viral on social media, netizens were quick to troll him. Many jokingly said that they didn’t know that roaming around in underwear cures an upset stomach.
