Deputy Leader of Opposition Rajendra Rathod, who was present at the BJP program, tweeted, 'The law and order situation in the state is extremely worrying.

He said, 'The state government should ensure prevention of such incidents happening with the people's representatives of BJP and take strictest action against the culprits.

On the other hand, BJP state president Satish Poonia said in a statement that the incident with Meghwal is unfortunate and condemnable, violence has no place in democracy.
