Excelsior Correspondent
JAMMU, Oct 5: All Jammu Hotels and Lodges Association (AJHLA) has termed the Government claim that with rail link connecting Katra, the base camp of Mata Vaishno Devi Yatra, business in Jammu city will not get a set back, as hollow and an attempt to hoodwink the people and particularly the tourism related trades in Jammu.
A meeting of the association was held under the chairmanship of its president, Inderjeet Khajuria, who while speaking, said that all the tourism related projects in and around Jammu city are being executed at a snail’s speed.
He said that Mubarak Mandi Heritage complex project would take another 10 years to complete and thrown open to the tourists. Similarly the other prestige project of lake in river Tawi and face-lift of Tawi bank were going on at a very slow speed, he added.
AJHLA has also expressed concern over non-starting of the work on Rope Way between Mubarak Mandi complex and Bahu Fort and from there to Mahamaya hilltop.
The association has also flayed non-seriousness of the Government over extension of Manda wildlife sanctuary, converting it into a National Wildlife Park.
AJHLA has demanded completion of all tourism related projects around Jammu city before the train reaches Katra.
Among others present were Ajay Gupta, senior vice president, BS Manhas, vice president, Pawan Gupta, general secretary, Baldev, treasurer, Sunil Suri and Vikramjeet Singh, secretaries.
