As a significant step ahead of President Droupadi Murmu’s visit to Assam for the Gaj Utsav, Sandeep Kumar, Principal Chief Conservator of Forest, Assam, has been appointed as the Chief Wildlife Warden on April 1.


A notice stating the new appointment has been released stating, “In the interest of public service, Sri Sandeep Kumar, IFS (RR: 1989), Principal Chief Conservator of Forests (Wildlife and Bio-diversity) cum Project Director, Assam Project on Forest and Biodiversity Conservation Society, shall henceforth hold the charge of Chief Wildlife Warden (CWLW) with immediate effect, until further orders”.

The order further stated, “Sri Mahendra Kumar Yadava, IFS (RR:1989), Principal Chief Conservator of Forest & Head of Forest Force, Assam, holding the additional charge of Chief Wildlife Warden (CWLW) shall hand over the charge to Sri Sandeep Kumar, IFS, immediately. Further Sri Sandeep Kumar, IFS, will continue to hold the charge of Project Director, Assam Project on Forest and Biodiversity Conservation Society”.

It is worth noting that, prior to President Murmu’s visit to the state, her predecessor Ram Nath Kovind’s visit to Kaziranga National Park caused quite a sensation.

According to trustworthy sources, the former President visited the KNP on February 26 and 27, last year, and the two-day visit cost the park administration a hefty Rs 1.64 crore. What’s more amusing is that a portion of the funds utilised for Kovind’s visit came from the Tiger Foundation’s corpus fund, with the remainder coming from a general wildlife fund.

This alarming information about former President Ram Nath Kovind’s two-day excursion to the national park and the subsequent expense compensated with government cash has sparked a scandal.
