Director assures of all measures
Srinagar, Aug 07: The Tourism Reception Centre building in famed Yousmarg health resort in Budgam district lies in shambles, with the Tourism development department not having renovated the building since 2009 when the building was constructed.
Constructed in 2009, the building lies in shambles, with water oozing underneath its floor. “A number of windows, doors and other material has broken off and have not been repaired yet,” tourists said.
The tourists complained that the government has not maintained the TRC building in the health resort like other resorts. “There are not many facilities available at the TRC,” the tourists complained.
The tourists complained that due to pollution and lack of cleanliness the health resort has been converted into a pollution dumping site, with both noise and solid waste having snatched beauty and attraction of the resort.
Director Tourism, Mehmood Ahmad Shah, told KNS that he will visit the health resort and asses the condition of the TRC and the maintenance of the place.
“We will take all measures that are necessary for keeping the place worth for tourists,” he said. (KNS)
