Gujarat Tourism - Ignoring Gujarati Tourists

Jamnagar is known for its marine national park, and this area has potential to draw many tourist across the world, Including Gujaratis from Gujarat.

However recent experiences from a Tourism Fair at Surat revealed that Gujarat Tourism is not looking forward to attract Gujaratis, When asked about Pirotan Island visit, officials asked them to visit Jamnagar and arrange the trip from there. The fact is one needs a permission from forest / marine department clearance before visiting either Pirotan, Narara or any other island under the Marine National Park.

It is very shamefull that Gujarat Tourism Development authorities also published most of the flyers in english , perhaps reused the distribution flyers that was meant for oversea customers.

The warrant was issued in conjunction with a 1990 case relating to a person's death due to alleged police beating, additional Session Judge Solanki issued the warrant after Bhatt failed to appear in the court in Khambhaliya taluka.

S P in Jamnagar, and was in-charge of police arrangements in Jam khambhliya area where communal clashes had broken out, it is said that on his orders, police had beaten up some people, causing the death of a man and injuring several others.

The senior IPS officer was recently suspended also; this is to note that Sanjiv Bhatt has accused Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi of misusing the state machinery during 2002 post-Godhra riots.
