Following were the responses by different government authorities –

Denial mode (e.g. of Midnapore deaths and of Purulia deaths, lies in Court using same source of data- 21 malaria and diarrhea, 179 other causes)

Immediate relief in Purulia, Bagda, tea gardens

Has to be of magnitude of tea gardens to cause a response

There has to be a death to have a response- Purulia

There has to be media hype and general hue and cry

One of the main problems related to the issue is that there has been no legal action against the authorities, once the starvation deaths have been proved. Hence for future, it will difficult if there is no follow up by local groups to monitor measures taken (matter deleted). Looking at starvation has to be part of a general larger strategy and we have to prove starvation and get punitive action on the same, concluded Ms. Talwar.
