PM releases eight cheetahs that were imported from Namibia into the national park of the MP


In Madhya Pradesh’s Kuno National Park, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday released eight cheetahs that had been imported from Namibia in Africa. PM Modi’s 72nd birthday festivities coincide with the entrance of the large cats in India, which has been deemed “historic” given that Cheetahs became extinct in the nation in 1952.

Shivraj Singh Chouhan, the chief minister of Madhya Pradesh, claimed previously in an interview with the news agency ANI that “there can’t be a bigger gift for Madhya Pradesh on his birthday.” “The cheetah was extinct. The greatest accomplishment for wildlife this century is this. This would encourage travel. On behalf of the state, we thank PM Modi.

Three of the eight cheetahs are males between 4.5 and 5.5 years old, while five of the eight are female cheetahs between 2 and 5 years old. The huge cats were transported to the national park by Air Force choppers after a Boeing 747-400 plane touched down in Gwalior at around 7:55 am on Saturday.

The cheetahs have arrived in their new home- KUNO – a heavenly habitat for our cats! (sic),” tweeted Jyotiraditya Scindia, the minister of civil aviation. “For the first time in a very long time, cheetahs are being reintroduced to the planet. It will stimulate travellers and advance tourism. There is little doubt that the area would draw wildlife enthusiasts “He previously told ANI.

According to a statement from his office, the Prime Minister’s decision to release wild cheetahs in Kuno National Park is a part of his efforts to revitalise and diversify India’s wildlife and its environment.
