Bihar BJP vice-president Devesh Kumar said, "What is being said about the Bolero vehicle, which apparently crushed nine children belonged to a BJP leader is absolutely wrong".

RJD leader Tejashwi Yadav told ANI that "the vehicle belongs to a BJP general secretary, the driver is absconding, and the administration has not been able to arrest him so far".

"The vehicle has a BJP board attached to it and the driver was drunk at the time of the incident. From where did he get alcohol when it is prohibited in Bihar", questioned Yadav.

Meanwhile, BJP state President Nityanand Rai denied Baitha being a party leader saying he may be associated with the party in some way but was definitely not an office-bearer. Our party has no leader named Manoj Baitha. The state government has announced a compensation of Rs 4 lakh to the next of kin of each child killed in the accident.
