Bihar would soon boast of an another zoo in the state. Government has decided to setup a new zoo at Mrig Vihar Rajgir. It was revealed by State Wildlife Council that CM Nitish Kumar himself took interest in the proposal and a decision on this regard was taken on Saaturday.
Nitish said a large number of tourists visit Rajgir. A zoo would not only save the animals but also provide an attractive tourist spot to the visitors. He also held discussions over Ghorakatora pond at Rajgir and talked about the efforts being taken to develop it as a tourist spot. Vehicles have been banned in the area and tourists can reach the pond only by cycles and tonga.
Presently Bihar has only one zoo that too in the heart of Patna due to which it gets over crowded. A second zoo would have a considerable impact on the influx of tourists in Bihar
