Conspiracy to finish off tigers: Ramesh

Conspiracy to finish off tigers: Ramesh

NDTV Correspondent, Monday April 5, 2010, Kaziranga National Park

Environment Minister Jairam Ramesh has said that a “determined effort” is on to finish off the tiger population in the country.

Speaking to NDTV at Kaziranga National Park in Assam on Monday, he said: “It is not coincidental, it’s not an accident, there is a deliberate conspiracy of real estate and mining mafia.”

“I can’t explain the unnatural mortality at Corbett, but this is an effort by some to depopulate tiger so they can take over Corbett,” he added.

On his first Kaziranga safari as Environment and Forest Minister, Ramesh announced that the National Tiger Conservation Authority will be set up with one regional office in Guwahati.
