Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti said her government was making efforts to create a world-class tourist infrastructure.
She said, “Tourism promotes people-to-people contact and tourists become goodwill ambassadors of a place. Like the maxim ‘seeing is believing,’ a tourist can testify the veracity of the claim about a place only after visiting it.”
Mehbooba said her government plans to create a world-class tourism infrastructure in the state.”Road connectivity to tourist destinations, bed capacity at tourist spots, wayside facilities etc are being improved and upgraded to address the requirements of every segment of tourists. Theme-based parks and places are being added to provide a variety of attraction to tourists,she said.
“Similarly, heritage lovers and trekkers would be having more spots and treks to visit by adding new heritage sites and routes to their checklist,” the chief minister added.
Every region in the state has a unique attraction for tourists and they should be promoted, she said.
