On his 72nd birthday today, Prime Minister Narendra Modi released eight Chivingi tigers brought from Namibia to the Kuno National Park in Madhya Pradesh.

Prime Minister Modi is celebrating his 72nd birthday today. Chivingi Tigers are back in India after 70 years as part of this birthday celebration. Eight Chivingi tigers were brought to India from the African country of Namibia by Boeing-747 special aircraft. There are five female Cheetahs and three male Cheetahs.

Grown-up in Windok National Park in Namibia, these Chivingi tiger cubs were flown to Gwalior in Madhya Pradesh and then brought to Kuno Palpur National Park in Madhya Pradesh.

Prime Minister Modi, who went to Uzbekistan to participate in the Shanghai Cooperation Summit, returned to India at midnight and visited Madhya Pradesh. He released the Cheetahs from Namibia on his birthday in the national park forest.

Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan was with the Prime Minister during the event. Terming it a historic day, the Prime Minister congratulated the Namibian government and the Indian authorities for making this possible.

The Prime Minister said that the extinction of cheetahs in India is a regrettable event. Still, the present government is committed to making India the habitat of Cheetahs again with renewed energy. The Prime Minister, who visited the park wearing a cap and coolers, enjoyed seeing the chivingi tigers as soon as they were released and photographed them on his camera.

Officials said, all cheetahs have radio collars, which will be tracked through satellite. In addition, a specialised surveillance team will be stationed behind each cheetah and will keep watch over its location for 24 hours.
