Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan stated on January 10 that more cheetahs will soon be visiting the Kuno Palpur National Park.
In September 2013, eight cheetahs of Namibia were released in the park as part of an ambitious program to revive the country’s extinct cheetah populations.
At the Pravasi Bharatiya Divas convention’s valedictory function, Mr. Chouhan stated that the Non-Resident Indians should visit the tourist attractions in Madhya Pradesh, including the tiger reserves.
“I will call to take you to the cheetahs.” He said that we are now allowing tourists to visit the area starting in February.
Chouhan stated that Prime Minister Narendra Modi helped facilitate the import of cheetahs to Namibia from South Africa. He also said that NRIs should establish a helpline for students studying in India from Madhya Pradesh or other parts of India.
He said that it was difficult to say goodbye to NRI guests at convention. He compared the moment to the “vidaai” of a bride, when a bride leaves her home to live with her parents.
He said that guests who have planted saplings in the Global Park can track their growth using the QR code provided.
The CM encouraged NRIs to attend the Global Investors Summit, which will be held here starting Wednesday. He also encouraged others to invest in the state.
