MIRPUR-AJK: Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK) Prime Minister Raja Farooq Haider Khan on Sunday, 6 December said that his government was committed to make Rawalkot a hub of tourism.
The government intended to develop the infrastructure of areas which had enormous potential for tourism and Rawalakot stood among them, he said while talking to media.
Poonch, being a top attraction for tourists, would be developed under a master plan, he added.
The prime minister said due to code of conduct of the election commission he could not make announcements for development of the area during the election campaign.
He assured that he would revisit Rawalakot soon to assess the immediate requirements of the people there.
He said in the next two and a half years, his government would fully concentrate on Rawalakot and surrounding areas as he came to know about the problems being faced by the people during his visits to the areas in the recent past.
Meanwhile prominent British Businessman Raja Ijaz Mehmood called on the Prime Minister in Islamabad. Haider hosted a dinner in his honour.
