‘Tiger reserves going Panna way’

IANS, Apr 3, 2010, 03.30am IST

Union minister for environment Jairam Ramesh said most of the tiger reserves in the country are in a bad shape and are going Panna and Sariska reserves way, which have no tigers left.

Ramesh, who was in Bhopal for the seventh convocation of IIFM, said condition of only nine, of the 39 Project Tigers Reserves in the country, was good while 12 needed improvement and 18 were akin to Panna and Sariska.

He, however, said the actual situation would come to light after the results of tiger census which would be available by November.
