Addressing the reporters, Devendra Fadnavis emphasized that the incident arose from personal enmity between Ghosalkar and Noronha. He assured the public that the police had identified some reasons behind the killing, dispelling claims that it reflected a broader issue of law and order in the state.

However, opposition parties, particularly the NCP, demanded Fadnavis's resignation, asserting that the murder highlighted a deteriorating law and order situation in Maharashtra.

Deputy Chief Minister Ajit Pawar also commented on the tragedy, labeling it as "wrong and unfortunate." Pawar pledged a thorough investigation to uncover the circumstances leading to the crime.

Shiv Sena (UBT) leader and MP Sanjay Raut joined the chorus, demanding the resignation of Chief Minister Eknath Shinde and Deputy Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis. The party, known for its vocal stance, underscored the urgency of addressing the prevailing law and order challenges in Maharashtra.
