Vrindavan, 2020-09-12 (VT): Neelkanth Tiwari, MoS (independent charge) - tourism, culture, dharmarth karya, and protocol met with BTVP officials recently to review progress of development projects undertaken in the years 2018-19 and 2019-20 and discuss plans for the future.
BTVP vice chairman Shri Shailja Kant Misra and CEO Nagendra Pratap were present during the meeting held in Lucknow. The projects reviewed included ghat and kund renovation/beautification, access road development, redevelopment of Raskhan Samadhi and interpretation center, pathway lighting, facade lighting, and public amenities like drinking water and parking.
Giving his suggestions, Tiwari said that professional architects must design these projects in accordance with the estimated growth in the number of tourists in the next 10-20 years. He added that in all future development projects undertaken in Braj, red stone should replace interlocking tiles as the former are more aesthetic and long-lasting.
The setting up of light and sound show at Shri Krishna Janmasthan and Govardhan’s Kusum Sarovar (underway) was also discussed.
In addition to providing recreation and other facilities to tourists, these schemes are also expected to boost the local economy and give employment to the people of Braj.
