FROM A CORRESPONDENT
BOKAKHAT, September 28: “Tourists from different countries of the world visit Kaziranga not to see buildings but to enjoy the rare species of wild animals in the tural atmosphere. They also like to study the lifestyle of the ethnic people and their colourful culture. But few people here, instead of creating healthy tourism, are destroying the tural environment by building luxurious lodges, dhabas and resorts for their vested interests only ,” said jourlist Anuradha Sharma Puzari at a meeting organized by the Tourism Department at the Kohora Convention Centre on occasion of World Tourism Day.
