PDP appeals Governor to intervene
Srinagar, May 12: PDP leader Engineer Nazir Ahmad Yatoo has alleged that Government is neglecting the famous tourist destination Yusmarg, located in Charar e Sharif area of Budgam. He has appealed Governor to take up the issue with Tourism department as local poney wallas and other local population associated with tourist trade are suffering a lot.
“ Inspite of being one of the virgin tourist destinations of Kashmir , Yusmarg is suffering due to official apathy. Tourism department is not able to project this tourist destination inspite of the fact that it is not much far away from Srinagar city. During my visit to area I found poney wallas , and other people associated with tourism trade suffering a lot . The tourist huts of JKTDC has meager occupancy and this is a matter of serious concern. I appeal Governor Satyapal Malik and his advisor Khurshid Ahmad Ganai to intervene “ said Engineer Yatoo
He added that Yusmarg has no mobile connectivity and the area sans ATM service as well. ” At a time when the remotest areas of state have been connected with mobile service Yusrmag tourist destination has no mobile connectivity with the result tourists suffer a lot. The area has no ATM service as well and people have to go to Pakherpora 8 kms away from Yusmarg to take out cash ” Engineer Nazir Yatoo further added
