Focus on eco-tourism, Gehlot tells officers

Special Correspondent

JAIPUR: Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot on Sunday directed the Forest Department officers to work for wildlife protection and prepare new plans for developing eco-tourism at various locations in the State. The Forest Department is currently observing the wildlife week.

Mr. Gehlot, who inspected a rehabilitation centre at Nahargarh biological park and the zoo in the Capital city, asked the officials to take care of animals and provide facilities for their upkeep.

He also planted a sapling at the rehabilitation centre, which is one of the five such hubs in the country.

“We need a concrete action plan for developing eco-tourism which has an enormous potential in Rajasthan. Such a plan will make a significant contribution to maintenance of bio-diversity in the forest areas,” observed Mr. Gehlot.
