The CM of Assam told the state’s food, handloom, handicraft, tribal culture, and natural beauty should be explored by travelers.
The chief minister of Assam, Himanta Biswa Sarma said his government is making efforts to bring back the Covid hit tourism industry by lifting restrictions from 1st November as the pandemic situation in the state has improved. On World Tourism Day, he declared a relief package which will give Rs. 2 lakh each to 142 tour operators and Rs. 25000 each to 605 guides to control losses due to pandemic.
The chief minister hoped that Covid would no longer be able to disturb the livelihood of people around the world from 2022, and the tourism industry is expected to see a major boost. He also told the need to promote less-explored destinations of Assam for outside visitors and asked the stakeholders not to keep the tourism circuit limited to only Kaziranga National Park and other known places.
