Hoteliers’ Club hold meeting with SDA


Srinagar, Feb 1: The JK Hoteliers’ Club today held an executive committee meeting in which Vice Chairman, Srinagar Development Authority, was also present.
 The members of the club held a threadbare discussion with the VC regarding the Master Plan and put forward their suggestions.
  “We raised issues pertaining to the tourism fraternity,” said Chairman, Hotelier Club, Mushtaq Ahmad Chaya.
 He said that the government should keep in mind the interest of tourism players before going ahead with the Master Plan.
  “It is good that the SDA has given us chance to give our suggestions regarding the Master Plan and we are hopeful that the government would keep in mind the difficulties hoteliers are facing,” Chaya said, adding that there is shortage of rooms in the Kashmir valley which is hitting tourism business directly.
 Meanwhile, according to the general secretary of the Club, Musadiq Shah, the meeting was held in cordial atmosphere where the VC SDA, Farooq Ahmad Renzu listened to the suggestions of the Hoteliers regarding the Master plan.
  “We are hopeful that the suggestion put forward by our members will be incorporated in the Master Plan,” Shah said.
 Pertinently in the drafted Master Plan Zabarwan range has been proposed as tourist hub. The proposed Master Plan suggests decentralization of population and activities through developing Satellite towns as Ganderbal (Education Town), Budgam (Commercial and Hotel Zone), Pampore (Transportation Hub), Khrew (Agro based Industrial Hub/agro-tourism).
  The meeting was attended by Joint Secretary, Tariq Rashid, Riyaz Ahmad Shadad and other prominent hoteliers of the valley.
