Kuno National Park: The long wait of 70 years in India is over. Prime Minister Narendra Modi has released 8 cheetahs from Namibia in the Kuno National Park in Madhya Pradesh. Also, PM Modi inaugurated Project Cheetah. After leaving the leopard in the enclosure, PM Modi himself took the camera and clicked their photos. These cheetahs were brought from Namibia to Gwalior by a special chartered flight. After this, the cheetahs will be brought to Kuno National Park in Madhya Pradesh via helicopter.
- Project Cheetah inaugurated
Inaugurating Project Cheetah, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that today cheetahs have returned to the country after decades. For this we thank the government of Namibia. Because of whom this work has been completed. He said, ‘It is unfortunate that we declared cheetahs extinct from the country in 1952, but for decades no meaningful effort was made to rehabilitate them. Today, in the nectar of independence, now the country has started to rehabilitate cheetahs with new energy.
- ‘Grassland ecosystem will be restored’
PM Modi said, ‘It is true that, when nature and environment are protected, then our future is also secure. The avenues of development and prosperity also open up. When cheetahs run again in Kuno National Park, the grassland ecosystem here will be restored again, and the biodiversity will increase. He said, ‘Nature and environment, animals and birds, for India it is not just about sustainability and security. For us it is also the basis of our sensibility and spirituality.
- ‘Countrymen will have to show patience’
Appealing to the countrymen, PM Modi said, ‘The countrymen will have to show patience, wait for a few months to see the cheetahs left in the Kuno National Park. Today these cheetahs have come as guests, they are unaware of this area. For these cheetahs to be able to make Kuno National Park their home, we will have to give a few months time to these cheetahs too. Following the international guidelines, India is trying its best to settle these cheetahs.
