The Prime Minister has asked the Chief Ministers of states with tiger reserves to take direct charge of the task of protecting tigers.
After a sustained NDTV campaign to save the tiger, the Prime Minister held an emergency meeting on Saturday and had a clear message for the Chief Ministers.
The Prime Minister will hold a Conference of Chief Ministers to put in place a coordinated response to the challenge of tiger conservation.
The government has also decided to sanction whatever amount it takes to save the tiger.
But there’s a warning for the states. Any State that doesn’t want to save the tiger, or denies the problem will not be given these funds.
