China likely to be partner country in Surajkund Mela-2016
Faridabad: China could be the partner country in Surajkund Crafts Mela, held every year in the month of February at the Surajkund Tourist Complex here. Haryana Tourism Chief Secretary Sumita Mishra today visited the Surajkund Complex, along with Managing Director of Haryana Tourism Vikas Yadav.
Talking to reporters, Mishra said that talks were on to make China the partner country. However, the External Affairs Ministry would take a final call on the matter, she said. This year there are four states in the fray for being the theme state. The four states are Bihar, Jharkhand, Telangana and Gujarat.
She said this time better facilities will be provided in the Mela compound.
Mishra said it was also realised that after coming to Surajkund complex, people want to have a look at the ‘Kund' too. Hence, a letter has been sent to the Archeological Survey of India for making it a part of the festival and allowing the people to visit it.
Mishra hoped that Metro services would help in reducing the number of vehicles plying on Surajkund Road this time
