Maneka Gandhi Slams Kerala Government, Rahul Gandhi Over Pregnant Elephant Death
Former Union Minister Maneka Gandhi questions why Rahul Gandhi has not taken any action and points out that the forest secretary should be sacked.
Member of Parliament (MP) from the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and animal rights activist, Maneka Gandhi, on Wednesday (June 3), flayed the Communist Party of India (Marxist)-led Kerala government for the tragic death of a pregnant elephant in Mallapuram district. The shocking incident came to light on Tuesday, after a forest officer shared the details of the horrific act on his Facebook page. Maneka Gandhi told ANI news, “It’s murder. Mallapuram is famous for such incidents. It’s India’s most violent district, for instance, they throw poison on roads so that 300-400 birds and dogs die at one time.”
The former Union Minister further said that the Forest Secretary should be sacked and also sought the resignation of the state’s minister for wildlife protection. “Rahul Gandhi is from that area. Why has he not taken action?” she asked. “Kerala government has not taken any action in Mallapuram, it seems they are scared. An elephant is killed every three days in Kerala.”
