GUWAHATI, Feb 4 � Governor PB Acharya has expressed his displeasure and concern over the ongoing killing of rhinos - the latest instance being in the Kaziranga National Park on February 3.

�The one-horned rhinoceros is our State�s symbol. In spite of having 1,200 Special Security Force personnel to guard our wildlife, it is a brutal attack on our capacity in caring for and preserving our rhinos. It is a challenge to our Government as well as the ministry concerned, and the Special Security Force,� he said in an official statement. While expressing his concern, the Governor said the crime has to be nipped in the bud.

�Governance and accountability to the people should be the foremost job of the Government. The Minister concerned should take up the challenge,� he added.

The Governor also called for examination of the equipment capacity and the ability, preparedness and willingness of those guarding rhinos to take up the challenges against disgruntled anti-social, greedy and well-equipped gangsters and criminals who are killing the State�s precious rhinos one after another.

Acharya expressed satisfaction that �Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi is very much concerned and has assured to take steps to check the crime against wildlife. It is high time to act and find out the deficiency in governance of the people concerned and to immediately punish the culprits.�

The Governor also appealed to the people in general to cooperate with the Government�s efforts to set right the things and protect the wildlife.
