Minister enters Kaziranga with firearm

first_imgMunda, accompanied by top forest officials, went to the park on Friday at around 10 pm and was surrounded by forest guards besides his personal bodyguards provided by Assam Police. This action of the minister drew flak from conservationists and wildlife lovers. Wildlife NGO Natures Beckon condemned the incident, saying the minister has not only failed to protect the rhinos but also failed to respect the provisions of the Wildlife Protection Act.“The minister’s move to enter the park with a firearm is a kind of political gimmick to impress people and cover-up their (the government’s) failures,” said Soumyadeep Datta of Natures Beckon. He said the act clearly stated that except forest officials and guards, no one can enter wildlife sanctuaries or national parks with a firearm. The minister’s sudden visit to the park came after poachers on Thursday night killed a female rhino at the Kohora range of the park and took away its horn. Park director MK Yadav, however, said the minister did not violate the wildlife act by entering the park with a firearm. “I cannot comment on my superior. There is no violation of any act.” The forest minister could not be contacted for comment.last_img read more

Critics, though, have suggested such scrutiny is helpful as investors evaluate whether to put money into these companies.It is unclear when Twitter will make its financial results public to potential investors, nor when it plans to actually sell its shares or at what valuation.Related: Easy Tips for Writing Better Tweetslast_img read more
