In Today's Pick, I am sharing an interesting opinion published in the New York Times that shows clearly how our government at centre is preparing for a historic extinction of Tigers in India.
The article rightly says, "Modi government’s aggressive focus on development threatens both the cats’ future and the nation’s environment. India is razing forests and flooding them with dams, giving the go-ahead for new mines and pushing rapid industrialization. The 2015 budget cut funding for the environment ministry by 25 percent and support for tiger protection by 15 percent".
I hope such articles will raise awareness on the disastrous moves by our government that would not only kill habitats for tigers but will doom India's environmental resources to an irreparable extent.
Thanks and regards,
