Tourism ventures in district aim at asset building: Madhwaraj

District In-charge Minister Pramod Madhwaraj said that the tourism ventures in the district henceforth would aim at asset building for long-lasting promotional measures.

Speaking after inaugurating the week-long national-level sculpture camp at Mannupalla in a programme initiated by the district administration and the district unit of the Tourism Department, the minister said the areas in and around Mannupalla lake is being developed at a cost of Rs 1.70 lakh. The tourism potential measure has helped for the visitors to have a pleasant leisurely time in the area.

He added that a sculpture camp is being organised as a part of the mega tourism event in the district. Udupi Parba and the sculptures by artistes from across the country would remain in Mannupalla as a part of asset building measure. This would enhance the beauty of the place as well as the identity. It would also hike the level of achievement to mark a niche for the artistes themselves. The artistes who are taking part are all well-known in the country, said Madhwaraj.

It would be a conglomeration of the various sculptural arts with cultural tradition, he said.

Zilla Panchayat president Dinaker Babu said that local talents should also be promoted in the art camp, which would introduce the indigenous art from this area to the outside world.
