Opposition criticises Modi’s “Man vs. Wild” venture

A trailer for the “Man vs. Wild” program shows Modi, 68, driving into the Jim Corbett National Park in northern India guided by Grylls, with images of a tiger, a herd of elephants and deer running in the distance.

However, India’s main opposition party alleged Modi was filmingfor the programme on the same day a suicide car bombing by Pakistan-based militants in Indian-controlled Kashmir killed at least 40 Indian paramilitary police on February 14.

“The Prime Minister was unaware even two hours after the incident that such a… such a huge terrorist attack had taken place and if the prime minister was aware then it reflected gross insensitivity,” said Indian politician and a senior member of India’s main opposition Congress Party, Manish Tewari, on Monday (July 29).

According to Grylls, the programme is aimed at raising awareness about protecting India’s wildlife. India is struggling to protect its environment and its wildlife, as a huge and growing population puts ever more pressure on its wild spaces.
