How will we promote tourism when air fares are skyrocketing: Guv asks Modi

Srinagar: Addressing Prime Minister Narendra Modi Sunday in his day long visit to J&K, Governor Satya Pal Malik brought to notice the ‘nuisance of rising air fares’ during winters in Kashmir.
As per Kashmir News Service (KNS) correspondent, Governor Malik spoke to Prime Minister on ‘behalf of Kashmiri people’, saying that during snowfall the air prices rise to 28 thousand rupees which amounts to a back and forth flight to Dubai.
Highlighting the odd bearing of the rise in air tickets on J&K tourism Malik said, “jab athayees hazaar mai Dilli se yahan aana paday tou kesay tourism behtar hoga ,(How would tourism thrive here if we pay same amount from Delhi to Srinagar in which a person would fly to Dubai back and forth).”
Turned into a fortress, PM was to lay foundation stones of various projects at Sher-e-Kashmir International Conference Centre (SKICC) in Srinagar. (KNS)
