Ravi suggests to deploy Naga, Gurkha regiments to check monkey menace

During a debate in the assembly on a private member’s resolution demanding that the government find a lasting solution to the menace of monkeys and stray animals, BJP senior leader and Dehra Legislature Ravinder Ravi suggested to deploy the army’s Gurkha or Naga regiments in Himachal.

He said that monkey is a delicacy for Nagas and Gurkhas and if these regiments are posted in cantonments in Himachal from time to time, it will definitely have an impact on the population of monkeys. He said that in the past a regiment was posted in Holta near Palampur for three years and there was significant drop in the population of monkeys.

Ravi said that it’s time to find an out-of-the-box solution and as the HC has banned killing of monkeys that enter fields and destroy crops, therefore the state has been left with the option of sterilisation. He believes that if Gurkha and Naga regiments keep coming for at least three years, it’ll solve a number of problems and will help maintain ecological balance.



The News Himachal seeks to cover the entire demographic of the state, going from grass root panchayati level institutions to top echelons of the state. Our website hopes to be a source not just for news, but also a resource and a gateway for happenings in Himachal.

    Dear sir,

    Namaste

    A humble salutations to all the people of India from this Gorkha of India.

    We, the Gorkhas have been living in this beautiful land of India since pre independence era and we have always tried to serve our Motherland India till the last breath. During the war of Independence also history speaks that our forefathers have given their lives for our country. Post Independence also if we have done our best to serve our nation. ” Jab desh me thi diwali who khe;l rahe the holi, jab hum baithe the gharo me who jael rahe the goli” these words from the song is very apt for our Gorkha community because whenever there is war then our hundreds of brothers from Gorkha Regiments gives their lives. I have witnessed many such instances since childhood and i remember whenever these emergency times comes we unite with the country and contribute every possible from our side.

    But today morning I read the following lines by our respected BJP leader Ravinder Ravi in Vidhan Sabha, “monkey is a delicacy for Nagas and Gurkhas and if these regiments are posted in cantonments in Himachal from time to time, it will definitely have an impact on the population of monkeys. ” It was the most painful moment for me and for our Gorkha community. I could find that pain in our every Gokrha Brother and Sisters, who was misunderstood.

    We Gorkhas do not have any history of eating Dogs and Monkeys. We respect them. The Second day of our Diwali is dedicated for dogs and we worship dogs that day and thank them for guarding us. We also have large number of monkeys in our area where we reside but we never thought of eating it because we take them as incarnation of lord Hanuman.

    We, the Gorkhas have faced the terrible identity crisis in our own mother land. Some says we are outsiders and some says we are uncivilized eating dogs and monkeys. It is really painful to listen these types of comments. We are peace loving people and we always respect the rulers of the nation, but on extreme we keep our self respect held high like the peak of the mountain.

    These lines are especially for Ravi sir, “we don’t know about your “out of the box solution” but please take your words back and kindly read the history of Gorkhas before commenting.”

    May the Beautiful land of Bharat be always at her Glorious Stage.

    Jai Hind

    Yours,

    Rasik Chhetri

    Son of The Gorkha

    Daejeeling, India.

    Adding to the comments, i will want to bring in to the notice of Mr. Ravi that our soldiers / forces are trained and deployed to guard the nation and protect our borders and NOT to eat Monkeys and Dogs..!! What a duty has this man given to our forces..

    This shows his inability to provide a positive solution to the issue and also proves his lack of knowledge and his level of thinking.

    Gorkhas are Hindus and never ever has any one eaten those whom they worship…
