Srinagar, May 21: BJP J&K spokesperson Altaf Thakur on Sunday termed the G-20 event as a great opportunity to boost J&K’s rich culture and tourism potential besides the age-old hospitality.
In a statement issued here, Thakur said that it is for the first time that the G-20 meeting will be held in Srinagar under the presidency of India. “This mega and historic event will help boost J&K’s rich culture, heritage, hospitality and diversity. The event will help showcase Kashmir's beauty and vast tourism potential on the global platform. We are hopeful that the foreign guests will become the ambassadors of peace in their respective countries which in turn will prove beneficial for the J&K’s tourism potential,” he said. Thakur said the grand success of the event will help spread the word on global platforms to remove the negative travel advisories on J&K imposed by foreign countries.
He said Kashmir is all set to welcome foreign guests and other dignitaries with open arms to prove their decades-old hospitality.
Thakur also lashed out at PDP chief Mehbooba Mufti who he said “is opposing the G-20 event”. “She has once again proved that she is with the stand of Pakistan. PDP chief is feeling isolated as she has been rejected by people of J&K on all fronts,” he said. Thakur thanked Prime Minister Narendra Modi for choosing Kashmir for G-20 events in Srinagar.
