10 more cheetahs arrive soon at Kuno Palpur National Park
Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan said on January 10 that more cheetahs would soon arrive at Kuno Palpur National Park in the state.
Eight Namibian cheetahs were released into the park in September last year as part of an ambitious project to revive the country’s extinct cheetah population.
Speaking at the farewell function of the Pravasi Bharatiya Divas convention, Mr Chouhan said that non-resident Indians (NRIs) who attended the event should visit Madhya Pradesh’s tourist attractions, including its tiger reserves.
“I will call them to see the cheetahs in February. We are allowing (tourist visits) starting in February,” he said.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi has made it easier to import cheetahs from Namibia, Chouhan said, adding that “more cheetahs are coming from South Africa.” NRIs should set up a helpline for students from Madhya Pradesh and other parts of India studying abroad, the PM said.
