On Sunday an FIR was registered against the spiritual leader Sadhguru, Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma, and others for allegedly violating wildlife laws during their jeep safari in Kaziranga National Park after dark on Saturday. Soneswar Narah and Prabin Pegu have filed the complaint. They are the inhabitants of Morongiyal and Balijan villages near the Kaziranga National Park. They alleged that the jeep safari with the vehicle’s headlights blazing after dark violated the Act.
They demanded the immediate arrest of Sadhguru Jagdish ‘Jaggi’ Vasudev, Sarma, Minister of State for Tourism Jayanta Malla Baruah, and others who were part of the jeep safari. Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma dismissed baseless allegations by activists that he and Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev had violated the Wildlife Protection Act by entering Kaziranga National Park for a night safari. “There is no violation. According to the Wildlife Act, the warden can grant permission to enter the protected area even at night.
There is no law to prevent people from entering at night. Yesterday we had the official inauguration of the park for this period. As now Sadhguru and Sri Sri Ravi Shankar have arrived and also have thousands of followers, we expect a very good tourism season for Kaziranga this time,” Sarma told reporters on Sunday evening.
About Kaziranga And Connection With Sadhguru And Assam CM
Kaziranga is considered one of the best wildlife sanctuaries in the world. The Kaziranga park’s contribution to saving the Indian one-horned rhinoceros from the brink of extinction at the turn of the 20th century to protecting the single prime and largest inhabitants of the kind is remarkable preservation attainment. As we all are aware the Ancient history of the jungle called Kaziranga began in the seventeenth century.
Some regional folklores relate to the source of its title, but historiographers advocate that the title of the national park is related to Karbi, a lady who once governed the area. The Big Five of the Kaziranga park include; an Asian Goliath i.e., elephant, wild water buffalo, royal Bengal tiger, one-horned rhinoceros, and wetland stags (deer). Kaziranga national park is one of the few wild breeding zones other than the African continent for many species of big cats such as leopards and Bengal tigers.
