Tourism Ministry considering night markets, restaurants: K J Alphons

Minister of State for Tourism K J Alphons recently said at a meeting held in New Delhi that all night open restaurants and night markets are some of the proposals being considered by his ministry to promote tourism. He further clarified that by promoting “night-life” he did not mean just ‘night-clubs’ but wholesome entertainment. He said there was a need to have activities around monuments after sunset too. The ministry has taken an initiative to illuminate monuments after dark. The minister said by promoting “night-life” he did not mean “night-clubs” but wholesome entertainment and revenue generation for the tourism sector 24×7.

“Night clubs are just a small part of the night life that we want to promote. We cannot have tourists go to their rooms and shut their doors at 7 pm. “We need to have clean entertainment like shopping, restaurants that’s how you make big money. We cannot just earn through ticketing monuments, we need to have activities around the monuments too after dark,” Alphons said. Tourism Secretary Rashmi Verma said the ministry had taken the initiative to illuminate all monuments, so that tourists can enjoy them after dark. The ministry is also in talks with the Archaeological Survey of India to keep these monuments open after sunset, she said.
