Dr Mahesh Sharma assures MP all possible help for tourism development
The Union Minister for Tourism and Culture recently met Rajinder Shukla, Energy, Mining and Public Relations Minister of Madhya Pradesh, in New Delhi, assuring him all possible help for development of tourism in the State.

Shukla requested Dr. Sharma to give priority to the Vindhya Mega Destination Project of Madhya Pradesh to help speed up development of tourist circuits and the development of historic Chirahula temple and the pond at Rewa. The Vindhya Mega Destination Project is estimated to cost Rs 49 crore. Shukla also requested that the proposal for an amount of `3.5 core sent to the Ministry of Tourism in this regard may be sanctioned to begin with. Dr. Sharma assured him that the proposal would be looked into and all assistance will be extended by the Ministry in this regard. Shukla also briefed the Tourism and Culture Minister about other projects being taken up by the MP government to promote tourism.

Focus on coastal tourism The government of India will increase its focus on promoting the coastal tourism circuit as India has a long coastline (7,500 km) and government will focus on harnessing this potential. Minister of State for Tourism Dr Mahesh Sharma said that India’s new initiative to deepen ties with Indian Ocean Rim (IOR) countries will definitely help to promote intra-regional trade and tourism among countries of the grouping.
