ITANAGAR, Nov 23 - Union Minister Kiren Rijiju today advocated a change in mindset of the people to exploit the tourism potential of the North East, including Arunachal Pradesh.

Addressing the inaugural session of the three-day Bomdila Festival-2015, which showcases the unique cultural mosaic of Arunachal, Rijiju said, �People from rest of India are keen to visit NE region but get scared to visit for the negative impact of insurgency.�

Though communication and infrastructure facilities pose problems, what is needed is behavioural change of the people, particularly tour operators to attract tourists,� the Union Minister of State for Home said.

�Tourism is known as the largest industry in the world,� he said and called on the tourism sector to take up steps to benefit the masses by generating revenue and employment.

�I have evolved a blueprint for the NE. The border trade through Bleting (Bhutan) and Pangsau Pass (Myanmar) would be introduced soon,� he informed.

Elaborating on tourism activities, including adventure and culture, Rijiju said the Centre would sanction Rs 150 crore to State�s tourism sector by next month. � PTI
