PM in Man Vs Wild will boost tourism, conservation: CM

Wednesday, 14 August 2019 | PNS | Dehradun

Prime Minister Narendra Modi featuring in the popular Man Vs Wild programme on Discovery channel will provide a major fillip to tourism and wildlife conservation in Uttarakhand. Chief minister Trivendra Singh Rawat said this while reacting to the screening of the episode shot at the Corbett national park in the state.

The chief minister said that the programme hosted by Bear Grylls was watched in 180 nations. The prime minister is the first Indian to feature in this programme. Rawat said that Modi choosing Corbett national park for this purpose would greatly benefit Uttarakhand. This will lend a new identity to Corbett along with the natural beauty and rich biodiversity of the state which will boost the number of tourists arriving in Uttarakhand. He recalled that after the Prime Minister’s recent visit to Badrinath and overnight stay in Kedarnath, a record number of people had undertaken the Yatra this year. The latest initiative taken by the PM will also prove to be helpful for conservation of wildlife, especially tigers while also spreading the message of environmental conservation. The chief minister also said that the host of the show, Bear Grylls had also appreciated his experience in the rich environment of India and interacting with the Indian Prime Minister.
