Dehradun. Putting an end to the discussions, Uttarakhand has said that Jim Corbett National Park is not being renamed as Ramganga National Park. Such discussions had started when Union Forest and Environment Minister Ashwini Kumar Choubey visited the famous National Park Tiger Reserve in Uttarakhand on Sunday and named the park as 'Ramganga National Park' in his remarks in the visitor's book. State Forest Minister Harak Singh Rawat told News247plus that Corbett is not just a name but a 'national pride', so the question of changing it does not arise.
Rawat said, 'Corbett cannot be imprisoned in borders like Kumaon, Garhwal of Uttarakhand. Corbett is history and legend in itself as well as a matter of national pride, inspiring people around the world. Changing the name of the park is neither practical nor rational… the state has no such proposal.
How did the discussion start, which became a controversy?

News247plus presented this entire discussion with facts and also told you the history related to the change of name of this park.

'However, now after a clear statement from the Uttarakhand government, it is believed that such discussions will be put to an end.
