The incident followed strong reaction from the opposition parties and the first to react was Nationalist Congress Party (NCP). Raising doubt over these arms used for riots, Jayant Patil, the NCP state president, took a swipe at BJP by calling this as the style in which BJP wishes to rule. “What kind of riots does the BJP want to incite by use of these weapons? If the BJP office bearers possess illegal weapons, there is no need of anti-social elements and terrorists. Looks like their work is done by the BJP office bearers,” Patil was quoted saying by PTI.
