Maneka Gandhi Blasts Kerala Govt Over Elephant Deaths, Alleges Inaction

Lok Sabha MP and vocal animal rights activist Maneka Gandhi came down hard on the Kerala government for its alleged inaction over the abhorrent death of a pregnant elephant due to consumption of firecracker-stuffed pineapple fed to her by a local in Mallapuram.

Maneka Gandhi also attached a document along with her tweet claiming that “About 600 elephants are killed by the temples by breaking their legs, beating and starving them and otherwise by private owners by insuring them and then deliberately drowning them or giving them gangrene by putting rusted nails on them.” Gandhi said she talked to the department almost every week about such cases of torture towards elephant and “they do absolutely nothing”.

The MP also posted telephone numbers of the state forest minister as well as other officials urging concerned citizens to reach out to them.
