Smriti added, "The goons of TMC beaten up an 80-year-old woman. What was her fault? Her son is a BJP worker that was her fault. She was allegedly beaten up with such brutality that she died on Monday. West Bengal election is the polls to bring justice to innumerable women who were raped, harassed and killed due to TMC's "gunda raj". People living in West Bengal are warning Mamata that Bengal will not tolerate the "gunda raj" of TMC. Bengal will not tolerate injustice anymore.”

Bengal will stood up and fight for a violence-free tomorrow, we will fight to make Bengal a safer state for our sisters & mothers.”
BJP National President JP Nadda wrote in a tweet, "I wish peace to Nimta's old mother Shobha Majumdar's soul. She had to sacrifice her life for her son Gopal Majumdar being in BJP. BJP will always remember her sacrifice. She was Bengal's ''mother'' as well as its ''daughter''.
