Sasan Gir National Park Girnar Mountain visit cancelled by Jairam Ramesh

Jairam Ramesh who is Union minister for environment and forests was to visit Sasan Gir Asiatic Lion Sanctuary and the site of proposed ropeway project at Mountains Girnar in Junagadh district had cancelled the programme at the last moment, leaving many people disappointed and I am also.

He was to arrive at Sasan Gir on the night of January 14. On Saturday morning, the he was to see the Asiatic lions at the Gir Wildlife Sanctuary and then visit the proposed site of Girnar Ropeway Project, which awaits clearance from his ministry and is delayed for various reasons.

The project went for approval to the Union ministry of environment and forests after the 178.88 sq km area, including Mount Girnar in Girnar forest, was declared as wildlife sanctuary in 2008.

As per Latest Junagadh BJP MLA Mahendra Masharu Interviews, he said that, "We have made several representations and also sent one lakh signatures to the Union environment ministry, asking that the project be given the nod. When we met Jairam Ramesh in Delhi, he assured us that he would visit the place, but has not been able to do so far. We urge him to either visit the site at the earliest or give nod to the project."
