Maneka Gandhi has become an internet sensation after a video of her losing her cool and abusing an official went viral. The Woman and Child Development Minister wreaked havoc on the official after the public accused him of corruption.
The incident happened in Uttar Pradesh’s Baheri city and Gandhi did not think twice about pulling up the official in front of the people present at the event. Displaying his mean side, Gandhi even made fun of his weight.
In the video, Maneka is heard saying, “Humans survive on respect and not money. Do you like the fact that people say mean things to you? You are getting fat like a haraamzaada (bastard) and on top of that you have the audacity to take a bribe.”
She also slammed him not fulfilling his duties.

Gandhi also touched upon the 2019 Lok Sabha Elections, and said elections should be won on the basis of good governance. She also said her main focus would be on ensuring the roads are good and that there’s a toilet in each house. Electrification is also part of her agenda.
In the meantime, Gandhi’s viral video has created quite a chatter on social media platforms, with many praising her taking the corrupt official to task. However, there are also others who believe she should have handled the situation privately with the accused official.
Check out a few reactions below:
If minister has issues take proper steps
Have a talk in the office
Record minutes of meeting
Hand over case file to appropriate authorities
Follow up thru assigned staff from ministers office
Be ethically morally responsible two wrongs don’t make a right
