Srinagar: Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah on Monday said Beerwah and Sonawar constituencies, from where he is contesting the upcoming Assembly polls, will be developed as "model constituencies" to symbolise infrastructure development and employment boom with an impetus on the tourism sector.
"Both Beerwah and Sonawar have enormous tourism potential and my dream is to see numerous world-class tourism destinations developed in these areas. Our efforts to develop Tosa Maidan as a tourism destination have borne very good results in the initial phases as the meadow has been sanitised and the firing range moved.
"There are dozens of beautiful destinations like Tosa Maidan in both Beerwah and Sonawar and I will not rest until each one of these places with high tourism potential become prominent and premium destinations on our tourism map," Omar said.
The chief minister was interacting with youth delegations at his residence here.
