Morning walkers attached to Maharajbag Sangharsha Samiti, Maharajbag Prabhat Mitra Mandal and Shri Aarogya Aasan Mandal will stage demonstrations at Maharajbag main gate on Monday at 7 am to protest against the zoo authorities to close down morning walk and demand to lift ban on it.
It may be mentioned here that the zoo authorities closed morning walk for the people near enclosures of wild animals in the zoo from April 9 as per Wildlife Protection Action and rules of Central Zoo Authority (CZA). However, the management has allowed for general public to undertake morning walk on alternate road near farmlands away from wild animals’ enclosures till 8.30 am.
The management said that some persons were displaying banners and sending messages to officers to resort to agitation as the rules. It has sought cooperation from Sitabuldi police for maintaining law & order, disturbing wildlife and saving damages to property.
