Srinagar, Sep 18: Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha on Monday said that tourist arrivals in Jammu and Kashmir are expected to surpass 2.25 crores, with foreign tourist influx increasing by 59% following the G20 tourism meeting in Srinagar.
The Lieutenant Governor welcomed the golfers to the UT of J&K and asked them to spread the message of the new Jammu and Kashmir across the country and beyond.
LG also highlighted the transformative journey of J&K over the past few years.
“For ages, J&K UT has been known as a seat of learning, a paradise on earth, and home to all spiritual streams. For several decades, J&K and its people had to suffer due to secessionism, terrorism, and nepotism. But those days of despair are gone now. The bright ray of hope has arrived in people’s lives. In many sectors, we are performing better than many states and UTs,” he said.
