    Dear readers,

    Environment, Forests and Climate Change Minister Prakash Javadekar who belongs to the state of Maharashtra may be included in tiger census ‘Shiv sena’ members.

    Only ‘gow mata’ has increased in its number despite India becoming number one beef exports. Let scale the tiger tooth to increase the population.

    Jai hind
