Yes, northwest India today is probably too dry for gaurs. But for sure in the past could be found places (in central India) where has been some overlap of former areals of the Asiatic lion and gaur. Hunting of bull gaur by pride of 2-3 male lions should be a really fascinating view, even more than hunt of cape buffaloes.

In the distant past probably those parts of Indian subcontinent had been plenty of aurochs (Bos primigenius):

This is good news. In election campaign for Lok sabha polls, MP (Member of Parliament) canditates of MP (Madhya Pradesh). They promised Sheopur division people to bring lions to palpur and solving many social issues towards development of Sheopur district of MP.

In addition to this, the lion in Kuno-Palpur, which has taken the district forward on the path of development, also raised voice over the ground.

There is large gap between RTR and Kuno NP without linking forests b/w. Hence, tigers finding even males finding difficult to migrate to Kuno.

Currently, no further progress. The villages of 413 km2 area are in the process of shifting outside which is being added to Kuno as it was declared as National Park few months back, in particular that area is core zone of National Park. Modi was urged to look into matter of relocation by MP CM. Due to silence from Central govt even after writing a letter, MP congress govt said it'll again file a case on non-implementation of SC order of lion reintroduction project and will approach SC soon.

As there is election heat in MP for parliamentary elections and Gujarat for both Assembly and Parliamentary elections. So, parties are campaigning for votes. Officials are busy in election conduction under guidance of election commission of India. So, all these type of projects are shelved for a while. Works may get resumed after these elections. Hopefully at least.
