On being asked about the death of 200 farmers during the ongoing the protests, JP Dalal stated, “Would not they have died if they were at home? Had they been at their homes, they would have died there also. Out of one to two lakh, do 200 people not die in six months? Someone is dying of a heart attack and someone after falling ill... They died of their own will. I have my deepest sympathies for them.” Taapsee Pannu tweeted, “Value of human life ‘zilch’! Value of ppl who grow your food ‘zilch’ Mocking their deaths .... priceless! Slow claps”. Richa Chadha, sharing a video clip from the conference stated, “Utterly disgraceful! We deserve better.”
