On Saturday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi released eight cheetahs in Madhya Pradesh’s Kuno National Park, which he had imported from Namibia in Africa. Given that cheetahs became extinct in India in 1952, the arrival of the large cats is being hailed as “historic” and takes place at the same time as nationwide festivities of Prime Minister Modi’s 72nd birthday.
Shivraj Singh Chouhan, the chief minister of Madhya Pradesh, claimed previously in an interview with the news agency ANI that “there can’t be a bigger gift for Madhya Pradesh on his birthday.” “The cheetah was extinct. The greatest accomplishment for wildlife this century is this. This would encourage travel. On behalf of the state, we thank PM Modi.
The cheetahs have arrived in their new home- KUNO – a heavenly habitat for our cats! (sic),” tweeted Jyotiraditya Scindia, the minister of civil aviation. “For the first time in a very long time, cheetahs are being reintroduced to the planet. It will stimulate travellers and advance tourism. There is little doubt that the area would draw wildlife enthusiasts “He previously told ANI.
