Other destinations of the world pale in comparison to the beauty of Lakshadweep

Prime Minister Narendra Modi outlined the government’s efforts to place the Union Territory on the international tourism map while inaugurating over Rs. 1,150 crore developmental projects in Kavaratti, Lakshadweep today. He said that Lakshadweep has got international recognition referring to the recently concluded G20 meeting here.

Under the Swadesh Darshan scheme, the Prime Minister informed that a destination-specific master plan is being drafted for Lakshadweep. He said that Lakshadweep is home to two blue-flag beaches and mentioned the development of water villa projects on Kadmat and Suheli islands.

“Lakshadweep is turning out to be a prime destination for cruise tourism,” Modi said as he informed that the influx of tourists has increased five-fold when compared to five years ago. PM Modi also reiterated his clarion call to the citizens of India to visit at least fifteen places in the country before they decide to visit abroad. He also urged those wanting to visit the island nations in foreign lands to visit Lakshadweep. “Once you witness the beauty of Lakshadweep, other destinations in the world will appear pale”, he added.

The Prime Minister assured the people of Lakshadweep that the central government will continue to take every possible step to ensure their ease of living, ease of travel and ease of doing business. “Lakshadweep will play a strong role in the creation of a Viksit Bharat”, the Prime Minister concluded.
