Bhalla for providing attention to promote religious tourism in Jammu region

Early Times Report

JAMMU, Jan 21: Former Minister and senior Congress leader Raman Bhalla today said that tourism has been well recognized as an industry and as such it will have to be managed accordingly. If it is properly managed, it has vast potential of employment both directly and indirectly. It is not only the valley of Kashmir alone, which fascinates the tourists/visitors, but the whole of Jammu region, has a tremendous scope of religious tourism provided greater attention is given to it.
There is lot of scope of religious tourism in Jammu region and greater attention should be given to it. Development of Parks, picnic spots, creation of wayside facilities and landscaping also require to be taken up on a large scale by the development authorities wherever it becomes necessary.
Bhalla was speaking at the sidelines of a Vishal Bhandara held at Preet Nagar. Addressing the gathering present on the occasion, Bhalla said all religions and religious preachers stand for love, amity and selfless service but their teachings are alarmingly falling silent in the din of hate and greed. To eschew these tendencies, there is immense need of generating awareness about the unity and diversity as professed by religious scholars and sages from time to time, he maintained.
He said that best way of celebrating the occasion is to take a pledge to follow teachings of Great saints in letter and spirit and work for building a society based on the natural principles of social justice, equality, compassion, love and togetherness.
Former Minister while pointing to the lack of proper development of Jammu said that the previous BJP Govt failed to expedite the developmental issues of the pilgrim places and time bound completion of various infrastructural works so that the devotees coming to pay their obeisance get the requisite facilities.
He regretted that the major development projects of Jammu including Artificial Tawi Lake and Barrage Project, Mubarak Mandi Heritage Project, Jumboo Zoo Project, Cable Car Project, Jammu Smart City Project, Development of Tawi Banks on Sabarmati pattern, New Medical Colleges, AIIMS Project etc. had failed to make any headway.
Reminding further the BJP leaders of its tall sloganeering of development of Tawi River on Sabarmati pattern, he regretted the deplorable plight of 'Suryaputri' which had been converted into a garbage bin causing water pollution of serious magnitude.
