Saikia said while he welcomed the inquiry ordered by the Chief Minister, there cannot be any denial that other violations regarding wildlife in Assam are rampant.

He demanded inquiries into the issues related to the state zoo and the animals that are being transported to Gujarat by Reliance.

“Rhinos from Assam were taken to Gujarat which clearly is not a suitable climate for the survival of the animal. Rhinos cannot survive in Gujarat which also happens to have one of the largest deserts. A proper investigation regarding this needs to be called”, he added.

Saikia also said that Reliance had promised two zebras to the Assam State Zoo and in return they took a few birds.
