A task force will monitor Cheetahs, on the basis of which we will decide when you can visit the Cheetahs. I request people to share their views on naming of the campaign and Cheetahs. It will be great if naming of Cheetahs is in tune with our traditions. Also, suggest how humans should treat animals. Participate in this contest & maybe you could be the first one to witness the Cheetahs,” said PM Modi.
