Early Times Report
Jammu, May 24: The website of Directorate of Tourism Department Jammu has not been updated for a long time now. There is no mention of Tourist Minister Tassaduq Mufti on the website.
Reliable sources in the department said: "The government had directed all departments several times to regularly update their websites in order to promote transparency. But it seems the officials of department concerned deliberately ignore directives of the government".
Sources further said that some officials of the department had brought the website issue into the notice of higher authority but to no avail. It clearly indicates that the authorities are not concerned about updating information on the website.
In beginning of this year, Tassaduq Mufti was inducted in the cabinet as Minister for Tourism. But even after lapse of five months the Tourism department Jammu is yet to upload the information on its website. The website still mentions Priya Sethi as Minister of State, Tourism. Shakti Raj Parihar is MoS of Tourism.
"The RTI section of Tourism department shows Farooq Ahmad Shah as its Director and Secretary, while he is posted as Secretary of School Education department. Also, RK Verma is still Director Tourism Jammu though he was transferred to other department one year ago", sources said.
They said the only agency in state, which was holding the responsibility of promotion of tourism, has turned callous over the issues. The toll free number given on the website 'does not exist'.
Government has been spending crores of rupees on road shows in different states of the country to promote Jammu and Kashmir tourism. The Union government pumps funds to state to make J&K digital, but the officials of Tourism as well as other key department have failed to implement the scheme due to which most of the departments' websites are defunct or not up-to-date despite direction of government.
