MP yet to sign tripartite pact for tiger conservation

STAFF WRITER 9:41 HRS IST

New Delhi, Oct 11 (PTI) Except Madhya Pradesh, all the tiger-range states have signed a tripartite agreement with the Centre and sanctuaries on big cat conservation which makes them eligible for funds.

West Bengal, which initially had expressed reservation in signing the agreement that makes the tiger reserve directors accountable for the predator’s mortality, too recently signed the pact, an official said.

However, Madhya Pradesh’s reluctance to sign the agreement has drawn flak from the environmentalists, who fear that in the absence of Central-sponsored funds, the state might lose its tag of “tiger state”, having as many as six major sanctuaries.

“All the states have already signed it and this is the way forward to revive the dwindling tiger population.
