Tiger
New Delhi, Nov 17: Following the report that the tiger in Sariska reserve died for poison, not for any territorial fight, Environment Minister Jairam Ramesh will reach at sight in Rajasthan on Wednesday, Nov 17.

Before moving to the Sariska reserve, Ramesh stated, "I admit that there has been a failure of governance and administration, and I take full responsibility for that. But to say that the relocation program is not working or not right is wrong."

After some continuous cases of illegal hunting in 2004, the Prime Minister ordered to relocate the tigers and since 2008, five tigers have been relocated to Sariska from Ranthambore.

In Sariska, a big cat, relocated from Ranthambore in 2008 was found dead and another tiger was missing from last week.
