Where is JK Tourism Ministry?

 
CHIRALLA: The Govt of Jammu and Kashmir, especially the Tourism Ministry might have done wonders in promoting the tourism potential of Jammu and Kashmir but still there are various spots in the Jammu region which have very high tourism potential even more than that of Gulmarg and Pahelgam but the the unfortunate thing is that the concerned ministry never tried to explore such spots thus remained neglected and out of sight for the outside world even within the state, such soots are least known.
This reporter has been trying to awaken the Govt and help it in identifying such places.
