Former Chief Minister Kamal Nath termed the incident as condemnable.
On the Anuppur incident, former CM Kamal Nath wrote on 'X' (formerly Twitter) that Shivraj Singh Chauhan ji, you cannot ignore seeing this gruesome video. In Anuppur district, a Bharatiya Janata Party leader is beating another tribal man with slippers next to the body of a tribal man. In Madhya Pradesh, the Bharatiya Janata Party is becoming a tribal atrocities party. After all, what do you want? When you can't stop atrocities on tribals, at least resign as chief minister. The hypocrisy of washing your feet cannot atone for your cruel power.
"You have not only made Madhya Pradesh number one in tribal atrocities but also number one in the brutality of atrocities. Seeing which our head hangs in shame. Have you given licence to BJP workers to commit atrocities on tribals? Sometimes a tribal daughter and five members of a family are buried alive in Nemawar. Sometimes in Neemuch, a tribal youth is tied to a vehicle and dragged to die. Sometimes a tribal youth is urinated in Sidhi. And every time a person commits atrocities on the tribal is either a BJP leader or someone associated with it. Shivraj ji, now you should leave so that Madhya Pradesh gets rid of this cruelty.
