A DELEGATION of Nagpur Residential Hotels Association (NRHA) led by its President Tejinder Singh Renu recently met Vimala R, Collector of Nagpur and submitted a memorandum suggesting to include Sitabuldi Fort and Raj Bhavan in the city tour. The delegation also held discussion to improve city tour in order to promote regional tourism. Tejinder Singh Renu appreciated the interest of Collector in reviving local city tours to attract local as well as outstation tourists.
“This will gather huge revenue for the region and boost the local economy as well,” he said. He said, “Since the sites selected earlier were not so attractive, the city tour lost steam much before than anticipated, therefore we think that these destinations must be part of the tour, which will attract a lot of local tourists as well.” “Like, Sitabuldi Fort built in 18th century has enough history along with war during Britishers time. Similarly, Governor Kothi (Raj Bhavan), another heritage masterpiece built in 1866 and has not even been seen by 1 per cent population of Nagpur,” he said. He further said, “It is also extremely important to add Vakataka Capital, Mansar and Kapoor Baoli Temple, Ramtek, in the regional tour.” Appreciating the suggestions submitted by NRHA, Collector Vimala R assured that she will make necessary efforts to get permission for suggested sites and by December launch these tours for the public. Also present were Inderjeet Singh Baweja and Dr Ganesh Gupta both vice presidents and Ajay Jaiswal.
