1. People from many corners of the country expressed happiness over the return of Cheetahs; 1.3 crore Indians elated, filled with pride. A task force will monitor Cheetahs, on the basis of which we'll decide when you can visit the Cheetahs.
2. "Task force set up for monitoring how cheetahs - brought from Namibia to India - are adapting," says PM Modi, adding that a nationwide competition will take place to name the cheetahs.
3. I request people to share their views on naming the campaign and Cheetahs. It'll be great if the naming of Cheetahs is in tune with our traditions. Also, suggest how humans should treat animals. Participate in this contest and maybe you could be the 1st one to witness the Cheetahs.
4. "Deendayal ji taught us how Indian philosophy can guide the world even in the modern, social and political perspective," says Modi on right wing ideologue's 106th birth anniversary.
