Bengaluru: BJP MP Prathap Simha has urged to rename the Rajiv Gandhi Nagarhole National Park after field Marshal KM Cariappa.

Pratap Simha has written to the Karnataka Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai stating that it is the demand of the public and people of Kodagu that Rajiv Gandhi Nagarhole National Park is renamed after field Marshal KM Cariappa.

The move comes after Assam Cabinet decided to rename Rajiv Gandhi National Park as Orang National Park.

Last month, Kodagu-based activists Naveen Madappa and Vinay Kayapanda initiated an online campaign on Change.org demanding that the Nagarahole national park be named after Kodandera Madappa Cariappa.

The petition was tagged to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Home Minister Amit Shah, Ministry of Environment, Forests and Climate Change and Karnataka Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai.

The petition read that the Nagarahole national reserve forest was renamed after former PM Rajiv Gandhi only to impress a particularly political family and the party. Kodagu residents demand that the national park must be renamed after Karnataka origin General Kodandera Madappa Cariappa or at least must restore its previous name.
