Dr. Singh’s failure to protect Tigers

Dr. Singh promised personal involvement in saving the Tiger in 2005. In Jan 2008, the National Tiger Conservation Authority has released the latest census totaling the Tiger population to 1,411 today. The report says the population has gone down by half since 2002.

Dr. Singh is no exception to the long list of leaders to have failed Project Tiger. But, his failure is more disappointing than the others. Dr. Singh personally headed the steering committee & hence is directly responsible. It seems, he’s just as clueless here as he is on national matters.

Read this to know how Dr. Singh has only paid lip service to this project. The latest Tiger census is proof enough of the failure. The very fact that Dr. Singh has asked the Chief Ministers to get in the act is an admission of the failure.
