Darakhshan demands promotion of Kokernag Tourist site

Srinagar May 04 (KNS):  Chairperson J&K Waqf Board Dr Darakhshan Andrabi today met the Tourist Photographers & Videographers in Kokernag Garden after her political engagements in the area and took stock of the tourist activities here.
Dr Andrabi was briefed about the minimal tourist activity here by the youth associated with the tourist related earnings in and around the garden. Dr Darakhshan assessed the damages in the garden by the recent flash floods.
"The garden is not on the priority visitor's list of tourism department and as a result of this very less visitors are seen here, majority of them locals. Tourism Department should expand their visitors tour area priority by promoting this belt also. The whole circuit of Anantnag, Achhabal, Nagdandi, Kokernag & then Verinag can be promoted as a Tour Circuit for tourists so that the people associated with tourism industry here also flourish", said Dr Andrabi. She assured them that she will take up the issue with tourism department soon.(KNS)
