Interestingly, the Junagad district collector, in his report, has said that while organising the camp was possible inside Gir, the last abode of Asiatic lions, accommodation may be a problem. As per the forests officials, the report stated that the part of the camp can be organised at Sinh Sadan - government guesthouse - while the some part of the event may be held inside the forest area.
Around 200 government officials, including ministers would be attending the Chintan Shibir. The report states that the official guesthouse, Sinh Sadan, will be able to accomodate only ministers and some senior bureaucrats. But for the remaining babus, the government will need to acquire rooms in the private hotels and resorts situated close to the forest.
When contacted Banchha Nidhi Pani, in-charge collector, Junagadh, admitted that the government had sought such a report. Pani also added that he has sent his report to the government. "The final decision was awaited," Pani said.
