Trying hard to keep J&K vibrant during winters: Sarmad Hafeez

SRINAGAR — Secretary Tourism Jammu and Kashmir, Sarmad Hafeez on Sunday said they were trying very hard to keep the Union Territory vibrant during winters.

Talking to reporters on the sidelines of a function in Sonamarg, Hafeez said they are hoping and trying very hard to keep J&K vibrant during winters.

“For this we have been taking various initiatives like we recently held a houseboat festival. We are also going to organise bird watching festival in collaboration with Wildlife Department as so many migratory birds have arrived here from different countries,” he said.

He added they are going to keep many resorts open, which used to remain closed during winters.

“We also hope during winters many foreign tourists will also travel to Jammu and Kashmir as we are promoting Kashmir tourism at International level as well,” he said. — (KNO)
