Tweeting about the incident, the BJP in Bengal said that 27 BJP workers have been killed out of which 5 have been killed in Purulia alone.

BJP general secretary Kailash Vijayvargiya blamed Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee for the violence in the state. “Despite continuous protests by the BJP and demands for investigation, Mamata Banerjee government is shielding the TMC goons who are on a killing spree," he tweeted
