Jammu, Sep 16: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)J&K, Executive Member, Raman Suri Thursday said that J&K Tourism and Professional Golf Tour of India (PGTI) has done a commendable job in bringing golf to life and making players like Udayan Mane and Jyoti Randhawa play in Jammu and Kashmir. “It is sure to boost the morale of young players.”
Raman Suri said that millions of rupees have been spent in Jammu Tawi Golf Course and in the coming winters, one similar tournament should also be organised here to bring this golf course to the list of international golfing arenas. He said that this golf course too is meant for professionals and doesn't lack in any sense including club, accommodation, practice ranges, landscapes, parking and of course the main gold course, which makes it an ideal location for professional tournaments.
Raman Suri said this tournament is a message to those trying to paint a wrong picture of Jammu and Kashmir across the globe. This place, he added, is not only safe but abuzz with multiple sporting, cultural and political activities that are all catering to different sections of society and boosting socio-economic standards of the UT. He said, Parliamentary delegations are descending in Jammu and Kashmir with a purpose to ensure that UT prospers at par with other states in the country.
Also, very recently about 70 women cyclists from across the country participated in Baramulla Cycle Rally and cycled about 70 kilometres from Baramulla to Uri to celebrate 75 years of India's Independence. These are all signs of normalcy, showing country's participation in making Jammu and Kashmir UT keep the pace with development and allied activities that had seized to exist in the erstwhile state.
Welcoming the professional golfers to Jammu and Kashmir, Raman Suri hoped that they will enjoy their game in this world-class location and become J&K's peace ambassadors in letting the world know how much the UT of J&K has come forward post abrogation of Article 370. He said, more such cultural and sporting events must be organised across the state and locals should participate in them as well.
