Both Pradhan and Naik have demanded early arrest of attackers and stringent action against them.
“I am deeply saddened hearing the demise of senior BJP leader and former Mahanga block chairman Kulamani Baral in miscreants’ attack. Baral was popular for his simplicity and as a dedicated social worker. Differences in opinion and disputes are natural in social life but violence and killing are the most remorseful,” Pradhan tweeted.
“I believe that the administration will take stringent action in this incident. I convey my condolences to the bereaved family and pray for his soul rest in peace,” Pradhan mentioned in the Twiter futher.
Similarly, Naik took to the Twitter and mention, “I am deeply saddened hearing about brutal murder of senior BJP leader and former Mahanga block chairman Kulamani Baral. My thoughts are with the bereaved family and I pray to Lord Jagannath for heavenly abode of the departed soul.”
He too dubbed the killing as an act of odious mentality. He urged the administration to take stringent action against the killers.
