Reintroduction of the Asiatic Lion Precedence of Politics over Rule of Law
The population of the Asiatic lion is confined only to Gujarat, and constitutes a single population that is vulnerable to extinction. In 2013, the Supreme Court directed that a second home be created for the Asiatic lion in Kuno–Palpur Sanctuary in Madhya Pradesh. However, no concrete steps have been taken in this direction. On the contrary, regressive policy changes have been carried out with the clear objective of undermining the Supreme Court’s judgment.
