SRINAGAR

Asking the people to rise and guard the interests of the State, Chief Minister, Mehbooba Mufti today said the residents of J&K have to show the way to peace, development and prosperity. She was laying foundation stone of the corporate office of J&K Cable Car Corporatio

People of the State have to create an atmosphere which can lead to friendship, amity and goodwill between the two neighboring countries, Ms Mufti said. She said it is only a peaceful atmosphere which can pave the way for betterment of relations, resolution of issues and frequent interactions across the borders.

Terming tourism as a means of integrating people, Mehbooba Mufti said she plans to make Srinagar a tourist destination itself rather than a transit point for tourists, as presently it is.  She said many tourist development projects have been taken up in the city which includes development of old city as a heritage destination, development of water transport across the city, introducing para-gliding facilities at Harwan and many other facilities.

Chief Minister plans of making a large park at Tattoo Ground and many other parks in the city to decongest it and provide a recreational space to its inhabitants. She, however, regretted that Government could not get much time this year to translate these plans into concrete actions and appealed people to help in maintaining peace so that the developmental activities aimed at their welfare are completed.

Mehbooba Mufti said she is already in know of the demands and problems of the residents of Batamaloo area adding that these would be prioritized for resolution. She said tourism industry has a good employability factor and once the said city projects are completed, Srinagar would see a huge economic turnaround.
