Leopard in Rashtrapati Bhavan During Modi 3.0 Swearing-In? The Truth Behind it.

Viral Video Explained: No Leopard at Modi’s Swearing-In, Says Forest Department

Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s oath ceremony for his third term took place on Sunday at Rashtrapati Bhavan. The grand event was attended by 8,000 guests, including foreign leaders, dignitaries, business tycoons, and film celebrities. However, amidst the political significance of the event, a viral video captured attention for an entirely different reason.

The Viral Video and Speculations

A video clip surfaced on social media, capturing what appeared to be a cat-like creature in the background while BJP MP Durga Das Uikey was greeting President Droupadi Murmu after the swearing-in. This led to wild theories about a mysterious animal strolling through the presidential palace. Speculations ranged from it being a leopard to a regular cat or dog.

The Forest Department’s Clarification

Amidst the flurry of speculation, a senior official from the Delhi Forest and Wildlife Department stepped in to clarify the situation. The official told the Times of India (TOI), “The animal in the video is not a leopard. The animal looks like a dog or cat.” This statement put to rest the theories of a leopard being present at the ceremony.

Biodiversity at Rashtrapati Bhavan

The President’s Estate, spanning 330 acres, is known for its rich biodiversity. It includes open spaces, forests, parks, gardens, fruit trees, and water bodies, supporting a variety of flora and fauna. A 75-acre nature trail has been established to raise awareness about nature conservation, featuring both managed and natural ecosystems.

This nature trail connects to Rashtrapati Bhavan’s gardens through well-laid paths and includes a pond ecosystem, butterfly corner, mango orchard, peacock point, and a forest area. The trail is home to 136 plant species and 84 animal species, such as frogs, lizards, and snakes.
