Staff Reporter

Advisor to Chief Minister Punjab on Tourism Asif Mehmood has said that the provincial government has decided to linkup various tourist spots of Rawalpindi with Murree by constructing new and repairing existing link roads. Kotli Sattian, Narr, Punj Peer and Prindla will be interlinked with Murree via Bun Karor.
He was speaking during visit spots on Monday to review different aspects of proposed plan. Member Punjab Assembly Wasiq Qayyum Abbasi and Deputy Commissioner Rawalpindi accompanied the Advisor.
Asif Mehmood while directing to initiate work on the project said that Kotli Sattian, Narr, Punj Peer and Prindla are beautiful but comparatively unexplored tourist spots. “Unfortunately these potential tourist spots which were neglected in the past need proper attention,” he regretted.
He said, “Prime Minister Imran Khan and Chief Minister Punjab Sardar Usman Khan Buzdar attach serious importance to promotion of tourism.”
The Advisor to CM on Tourism further observed that by developing Kotli Sattian, Narr, Punj Peer and Prindla areas tourists could make simultaneous plan for Murree and these tourist spots. This would reduce burden on Murree, he added.
Asif Mehmood said that for promotion of tourism rest houses would be developed on the routes to Kotli Sattian, Narr, Punj Peer and Prindla. “Construction of restaurants and camping sites would be encouraged” vowed the Advisor.
