LAHORE: The Punjab government has decided to link up various tourists' spots of Rawalpindi with Murree by constructing new roads or repairing the existing link roads.

Areas which will be linked with Murree include Kotli Sattian, Narr, Punj Peer and Prindla via Bun Karor.

To review different aspects of the proposed plan, Advisor to Chief Minister Punjab on Tourism Asif Mehmood visited these tourist spots. Member Punjab Assembly Wasiq Qayyum Abbasi and Deputy Commissioner Rawalpindi accompanied the Advisor.

The Advisor on Tourism while directing to initiate work on the project said that Kotli Sattian, Narr, Punj Peer and Prindla are beautiful but comparatively unexplored tourist spots. "Unfortunately, these potential tourist spots which were neglected in the past need proper attention," regretted the Advisor.

Asif Mehmood further observed that by developing these areas, tourists could make a simultaneous plan for Murree and these tourist spots. "This would, he said, reduce the burden on Murree".
