New Delhi, Sept 14 (PTI) The Centre has succeeded in persuading a reluctant Madhya Pradesh, which is facing flak for the dwindling tiger count in the state, to sign a tripartite pact with the National Tiger Conservation Authority (NTCA) and tiger parks on conservation of big cats.

The state which has five tiger reserves namely — Panna, Satpura, Pench, Kanha and Bandhavgarh tiger parks — had reservation on the clause in the pact that “holds the director of the reserve accountable for any tiger death in his area.–parks
