Uttarakhand / Haridwar : Traders took out funeral procession of tourism industry

Under the auspices of United Front Tourism Industry, traders took out the funeral procession of the tourism industry from Rahi Hotel to Khadkhari crematorium. The tourism businessmen allege that the tourism business has been completely destroyed due to the policies of the government and not being properly advocated in the High Court in the matter of Chardham Yatra. In a way, the tourism business has died. Tourism businessmen say that Uttarakhand is completely based on religious tourism. In which Chardham Yatra is the most important. Tourism activities are going on in full swing in other states. But tourism is being banned in Uttarakhand. In the funeral procession of the tourism industry that started from Rahi Hotel, officials and members of organizations like Taxi Maxi Union, Tour Operator Association, Travel Trade Association, Transport Union, Tempo Traveler Association, Dharamshala Committee, Hotel Traders etc. gathered at the District Tourism Office located at Rahi Motel. And from there, carrying the meaning of the tourism industry on the shoulders, performing the demonstration, reached the Khadkhari crematorium via Harki Paidi and performed the last rites after taking a bath in the Ganges. Traders offered flowers on the funeral procession through the markets. During this, Abhishek Ahluwalia said that if the government had put its side properly in the High Court, then the Chardham Yatra would not have stopped. Due to the stoppage of Char Dham Yatra, the back of every person associated with the tourism business has broken and he has not been able to bear the burden of his financial responsibility. Girish Bhatia, President of Taxi Maxi Union said that all taxi vehicles are standing as they are for the second consecutive year. Therefore, the government should waive the tax on vehicles for two years and also give exemption in insurance.
