Union Minister for Women and Child Development Maneka Gandhi on Thursday trained guns at her cabinet colleague Union Environment Minister Prakash Javadekar saying the latter’s ministry is frivolously granting permission to kill innocent animals.

On the reports of a large number of deer being killed in Patna in Bihar, Gandhi told ANI that she does not understand this ‘lust’ to kill.

“The Environment Ministry here is writing to every state asking them which animal they want to kill and they will grant permission. In Bengal they gave permission to kill elephants, in Himachal they gave permission to kill monkeys, in Goa they gave permission to kill peacocks,” said Gandhi.

“In Chandrapur where the condition is so adverse that they have already killed 53 wild boars and permission to kill 50 more has been given. Environment Ministry’s own wildlife department said they don’t want to kill animals and should not be pressed to do so. I don’t understand this lust for killing,” she added.

Gandhi further castigated the killing of animals across the nation saying it is a matter of shame that none of the locals want to kill deer, so to complete the task the environment ministry had to hire shooters from a different state.

“The shooters hail from a family which comes from Hyderabad and they roam around the nation and kill animals. Such incident has taken place first time in Bihar. Such a massacre has never taken place, where deer which is a protected animal in huge numbers have been killed,” said Gandhi.

 “The point which should be noted is that no one from Bihar, no head of any village or any farmer asked for the killing. And it is a matter of shame that they had to get shooters from Hyderabad to kill animals,” she added.

According to reports, the Union government recently declared monkeys as ‘vermin and cleared the decks for their large-scale extermination in Shimla. 

Meanwhile in Goa, a call was made to cull India’s national bird peacock citing the reason that the bird is creating a problem for farmers and destroying their cultivation in rural areas.
