Long Wait For the Lion Safari in Etawah

The Lion Safari in Etawah is a dream project of Samajwadi Party leader Mulayam Singh Yadav and his son Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav. Begun more than a decade back during the chief ministership of Mulayam Singh Yadav, the project is yet to take off. The latest hurdle which has been nagging the officials is the inability of Asiatic lions to survive. Four adults have died since 2014. Five cubs have failed to survive last year. The elections are less than six months away, but the lions seem indifferent to the politics.
