Addressing the nation from the Red Fort on 73rd Indian Independence Day, the Prime Minister asked the upper-middle class to travel more often and visit alteast 15 tourist destinations across India by 2022. “India has so much to offer. I know people travel abroad for holidays. But can we think of visiting at least 15 tourist destinations across India before 2022, when we mark 75 years of freedom?" he said.

 

Visiting places will boost tourism in these areas and automatically lead to better facilities, said the Prime Minister.

Niti Aayog CEO soon responded to PM Modi's statement. “Thanks PM @narendramodi for emphasising that every Indian must discover India by visiting 15 destinations. Here’s a glimpse of the unique beauty & charm of India captured in this fascinating “Incredible India” film. Do watch it on #Vimeo,” he tweeted.
