Take charge of tigers: PM tells CMs
Saturday, February 23, 2008 (New Delhi)
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.
