New Delhi, May 25

The Centre and Haryana Government’s efforts to restore the Aravalli hills appear to be moving forward. Union Environment Minister Bhupender Yadav and Haryana CM Manohar Lal Khattar today discussed the modalities of the ambitious Aravalli Safari Park Project and the efforts to replenish the rich ecosystem of the mountain range.

“In today’s meeting, we moved a step closer towards its (Aravallis’) restoration and starting a safari in the region,” Yadav said. Khattar said the site had been identified and top firms would be invited to design the safari.

The project has a huge potential to generate employment avenues for locals, officials said. It mostly comprises the stretch along the Sohna Road towards Nuh beyond Bhondsi village. — TNS
