Mamata Banerjee wishes Narendra Modi on birthday

India Blooms News Service | @indiablooms | 17 Sep 2022, 05:10 pm

Kolkata: West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Saturday wished PM Narendra Modi on his 72nd birthday.

"Heartiest greetings to the Hon'ble Prime Minister Shri @narendramodi  ji, on his 72nd birthday. I pray to God for your good health and happiness," Banerjee tweeted.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi began his 72nd birthday by releasing eight cheetahs from Namibia in Madhya Pradesh's Kuno National Park Saturday.

The relocation of the cheetahs, who were flown to Gwalior from Africa, marked the carnivore’s presence in India and concluded the seven-decade-long hiatus.

The release of wild Cheetahs by the Prime Minister in Kuno National Park is a part of his efforts to revitalise and diversify India’s wildlife and its habitat. Cheetah was declared extinct from India in 1952.

The Cheetahs that would be released are from Namibia and have been brought under an MoU signed earlier this year. The introduction of Cheetah in India is being done under Project Cheetah, which is world’s first inter-continental large wild carnivore translocation project.
