The state government has no plan to show tigers to the tourists in the Sunderbans in order to promote tourism, tourism minister Manabendra Mukherjee said on Friday.

“The government will not introduce any plan to show tigers to the tourists as it will not be in the interest of the Sunderbans — a world heritage site,” the minister told the Assembly. He was replying to the demands for budgetary grants of his department.

Trinamool Congress leader Saugata Roy said that to attract tourists the state government should introduce tiger shows in the Sunderbans like other national parks. Mukherjee, however, said the forest department was considering a proposal to set up a tiger rescue centre at Jharkhali in Sunderbans where injured tigers would be treated. The tourists could view the big cat there, he added.

He also said the UN World Toruism Organisation was preparing a plan for the development for Sunderbans.
