After Prime Minister Narendra Modi, UP CM Yogi Aditiyanath has also echoed similar beliefs of a need for wildlife conservation. Photos and videos of CM Yogi’s visit to a zoo in Gorakhpur along with the Actor and Politician Ravi Kishan, have been taking over the internet. On Wednesday, the Chief Minister of UP, Yogi Aditiyanath, reached the Shaheed Ashfaq Ullah Khan zoological park and veterinary Hospital for inspection in Gorakhpur along with politician and actor Ravi Kishan.
In the video, Chief Minister Yogi can be seen feeding the leopard cubs with a baby feeding bottle. However, quite contrary to UP CM’s friendliness toward the cubs, Actor and Politician Ravi Kishan can be seen being scared of even holding them. Chief Minister Yogi was unphased by the cubs and even fed them. In the video, Ravi Kishan can also be seen treading carefully as he approaches the leopard cubs to feed them, but immediately changes his mind and gets away from the camera.
