Ramtek (Maharashtra): Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi today promised to develop Ramtek town as a world class tourist centre to attract international tourists.
Addressing a mammoth poll rally in the temple town of Nagpur district here, the senior leader said that Congress was committed for the all round development of the area which has ample opportunities, including the religious centre of Ram mandir and its wild forests.
Congress will develop Ramtek as a ‘tourist hub', on the lines of Bangalore as IT hub, Pune as automobile hub.
He said that the Congress, if voted to power in Maharashtra, will focus on development of Ramtek which will provide jobs to hundreds of unemployed youth.
Counting on previous government's work in the town, Rahul said the state government previously had made a provision of Rs 200 crore for development of Ramtek.
He said that with the new textile policy and industrial policy of Maharashtra, about 30 lakh jobs will be created in the near future.
