Vibodh Demands Development of Tourist Circuit Along Mughal Road

BJP Senior leader and MLC Vibodh Gupta today had a meeting with commissioner Secretary Tourism Farooq Ahmed Shah and discussed various proposals for the development of Tourism in Pir Panjal area. During the meeting Vibodh informed that there is a large number of historic forts and other structures linked to the Mughal history in Rajouri and Poonch all along the Mughal Road. These monuments needs to be properly protected and restored so that a Mougal Tourism Circuit from Chingus to Pir Ki Gali can be developed. This he said will go a long way in promoting this region for tourism at national and international level. Gupta also proposed to the tourism commissioner that since a large number of people visit Shadra Shrief and in order to further develop this area a Gandola project should be started between Shardra Shrief and DKG. This Gandola service can act as a huge attraction for the tourists as this area has immense scenic and natural beauty. MLC Vibodh further proposed that since Rajouri town is centrally located between Jammu and Srinagar so a ultra modern and high tech tourism complex with state of art facilities needs to be developed in Rajouri. This facility can act as a tourism facilitation center for the Pir Panjal area. During the meeting Vibodh also informed the commissioner secretary that as per the agenda of the alliance of the Government it is proposed that seven lakes of Rajouri will be promoted as major tourism destination in the Pir Panjal area. He said that this process needs to be expedited and road connectivity should be provided to these remotely located lakes. All these proposals once implemented will go a long way in exploiting the tourism potential of the region. This will also boost the economy of the region and will create tremendous employment opportunities for the local youth. Commissioner secretary tourism informed MLC Vibodh that all these proposals are very good proposals and tourism department will make all efforts to ensure that these very important proposals are properly implemented on the ground.
