Bhopal, Sep 16 (PTI) The Madhya Pradesh Government today denied some reports that it has signed a tripartite agreement on tiger reserves management with the Centre and tiger parks in the state.

“The Madhya Pradesh government has not signed any tripartite MoU with the Centre through National Tiger Conservation Authority (NTCA) and field directors of Project Tiger Reserves in the state,”an official release said here.

Some media reports had said the Madhya Pradesh Government, which faced criticism for the dwindling tiger count in the state, had agreed to sign the agreement for the conservation of big cats.

The Centre has been insisting that funds for the management of the tiger reserves would not be released unless the state government and the field directors enter into a tripartite pact with it through NTCA.

The state Forest Department refuted these reports saying the discussion is still going on regarding amendment in the form and contents of the agreement.

The Madhya Pradesh government has not yet agreed to sign the tripartite MoU in its current form, the release said.
