Amitabh Bachchan speaks on the six point agenda to encourage involvement in the movement to save a part of our heritage - our tigers - before it is lost forever.
Principal communication to Chief Ministers
Protecting the tiger, our national animal, and its forests, is crucial to the water, food and economic security of the state. These forests are life-saving infrastructures which will save lives, and livelihoods as climate change moves into higher gear.
Enhancing protection for these forests not only consolidates the ecological and economic foundation of the state, but would also prevents insurrectionists and terrorists, who are in league with the illegal timber and wildlife trade, from stealing forest wealth, which they are using to buy arms and ammunition and to sustain their cadres engaged in anti-national activities.
It is possible to offer guaranteed employment to all adults living in communities immediately surrounding tiger forests.
