Lately, the honorable chief minister of Goa had demanded the classification of Monkeys into the category of ‘Vermin’ claiming that they cause a lot of nuisance to the people. Based on the available information from the reliable sources, the national bird Peacock and state animal wild bison are also among the list to be labeled as the ‘Vermin’ by the government of Goa.
Goa state is considered to be a model state in India where most of the experiments are been carried out before applying it to the other states of India. It looks like perhaps, Goa government is in the process of trying out few things which the central government may plan to follow. This is just an estimation and not the statement. Last month the chief minister of Goa announced that government will classify the monkeys into the category of ‘Vermin’. It became the issue of controversy in the state. This issue was following to the earlier major issue of the classification of Coconut tree into ‘Grass’.
