The endeavor of one man can result in exemplary achievement and accomplishment. The resolve of LG Shri Manoj Sinha to ensure the cleanliness of Dal Lake has brought wondrous results.
The LG ensured that the drive to clean Dal Lake was carried out in full earnestness, and personally monitored the progress of the campaign. His efforts have borne fruit. The pristine beauty of Dal Lake, cleaned of weeds and filth, has delighted the Kashmiris and the lakhs of visiting tourists alike. This is indeed a very positive endeavor and deserves accolades. The Dal has been cleaned not just from the Boulevard side but also from the Nishat side. To a significant extent, its beauty and glory have been restored. The Mughal Gardens of Srinagar need similar focused attention of the LG. These are the favorite haunts of the locals and also the tourists. But the litter that we see strewn about at these beauty spots is a huge dampener. Be it the expansive gardens of Chashme Shahi, Pari Mahal, or the gardens at Harwan and Nishat, a massive cleanliness drive needs to be initiated by the UT Administration.
Other major tourist spots like Gulmarg, Pahalgam, and the like also need dedicated brigades focused on cleanliness. The personal monitoring by the LG for developmental work at the favorite destinations in Kashmir for the locals and tourists shall further enhance their appeal and maximize their revenue potential by drawing more and more visitors.
