While speaking to the media, Jishnu Basu, RSS's General Secretary in South Bengal, said, “It is a very unfortunate incident and we are in a state of shock over the clashes which are taking place in Basirhat . We strongly condemn this incident.”

Mamata claimed that there were some religious leaders from both Muslim and Hindu community behind the clashes. “I am sorry to say that some religious leaders are doing this in exchange for money. This is shocking. Please don’t try to judge my patience limit. I am not in favour of any particular community,” she said.

BJP state President Dilip Ghosh said, “We wanted the immediate arrest of the accused, and demanded the central government's intervention in the matter. The law and order situation in Bengal ran into rough weather and the Chief Minister is sitting ideal.”

Meanwhile, BJP is sending a central team to Basirhat. Senior leaders like Minakshi Lekhi, Om Mathur and Satyapal Malik are expected to reach on Friday to examine the ground realities
