Subscribe to Oneindia News

Jaipur, Jan 8 (UNI) Rajasthan Government will soon start work towards creating a Tiger Corridor linking existing three tiger sanctuaries in Sawai, Madhopur and Karauli districts in the state.

The move was aimed at ensuring better prospects for sighting of tigers by tourists without creating much disturbance in the core areas, State Energy Minister Gajendra Singh Khimsar told reporters here today.

The proposed corridor would cover the areas known for usual movement of the big cats between three sanctuaries -- Sawai Mansingh Tiger sanctuary, Kaila Devi sanctuary and Kualji sanctuary spread over more than two districts.

Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje expressed her displeasure over non-implementation of the project which was reportedly mooted by her about two years ago.

The Chief Minister asked the officials to move fast on the idea, Mr Khimsar added.

The issue also figured at the Collectors Conference here.
