Bihar chief minister, Mr Nitish Kumar on Wednesday said that the state has immense tourism potential and the government is working relentlessly to promote eco-tourism. The Environment, Forest and Climate Change Department of the state government has presented a draft eco-tourism policy before the CM via video conference.
Speaking about it, the CM said, “The Bihar government has already taken several steps to protect the environment. While finalising the eco-tourism policy, we must remain careful that nature is not harmed in any way.”
The Eco-tourism policy, will increase awareness among people about protecting the environment and animals and conserve nature in a better way.
The CM said, one of the top tourist spots of Valmiki Nagar situated beside river Gandak will be promoted as an eco-tourism spot.
Valmiki Nagar is a famous tourist spot where a dam has been constructed on the river Gandak. There is a national park present here and this is said to be the area where Maharshi Valmiki, the author of the Ramayan stayed for some years.
“The state government will soon construct a convention centre in Valmiki Nagar,” said the CM to the press.
