Assam Gov compares ‘rhino poaching’ to be attack on state’s pride
Expressing concern on the incidents of poaching of rhinos in Kaziranga National Park, the Assam Governor Prof Jagadish Mukhi has directed law enforcing agencies to ensure and prevent such incidents.
He said that Assam has a name and fame worldwide because of the Kaziranga National Park and its precious one-horned rhinoceros.
He said that indiscriminate killing of the rhinos by the poachers should be seen as an attack on the pride of the state.
The Governor made the directives while at a review meeting with Golaghat district authorities last night.
Incidents of poaching over the months have reduced drastically but security agencies must be on their toes to foil any nefarious design to harm the rhinos, he added.
The governor also reviewed health and hygiene, drinking water, cleanliness, education, road and communication, agriculture among other issues in the district.>
