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.

In a recent meeting with the Union Environment Minister Jairam Ramesh in Bhopal, the state forest officials agreed to sign the agreement after the minister convinced them about the need of the pact.

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.
