The Saras crane stands between CM Mulayam Singh Yadav and his dream of an international airport in his native village Saifai in Mainpuri district. Foreseeing the air-strip as a threat to the bird’s habitat, the SC has put the brakes on the project. Wildlife Institute of India estimates say there are just around 3,315 Saras cranes all over India, of which about 2,922 are in UP. Court intervention has pushed Mulayam into roping in national and international experts and constituting a Saras Protection Society. Mulayam has also sanctioned a corpus fund of Rs 10 crore for the independent body.
