Budgam 31 January 2019: The tourism department of Jammu and Kashmir is spending crores for the publicity of tourist destinations and to attract the tourists both local and non local. But their height of negligence can be seem as they have failed to clear snow over the roads approaching these destinations. The living example of it is Doodhpathri which is a famous tourist destination and perhaps the best spot for local and non local tourists. With the entry of winter season, the road from Raiyar to Doodhpathri remained blocked due to the accumulation of snow on it. The district administration and Doodhpathri development authority have failed to make it through for tourists. “A large number of tourists who came here to entertainment return back after travelling almost 40 Kilometres from Srinagar”, said a local . While talking with some of the aggrieved tourists who had came there from Mumbai they alleged that administration of Jammu and Kashmir has failed to make the tourist destinations motorable for tourists. The government of Jammu and Kashmir made them hopeless. “We appeal the Hon’ble Governor of Jammu and Kashmir Mr Satya Pal Malik, Authorities of Tourism department and district administration to make the Raiyar Doodhpathri road motorable by clearing snow on it at an earliest”, they further added.
