Early Times Report

JAMMU, Feb 11: Shiv Sena Bala Sahib Thackrey today expressed resentment against the Tourism Department of Jammu for neglecting the talented artists of Jammu region.
Addressing a press conference here today, Dimpy Kohli, State President of Shiv Sena with General secretary Manish Sahni said that a three-day long Jammu Mahotsav was organized by the Tourism Department and lakhs of rupees were spent for the mega event.
Kohli appreciated the efforts of Tourism Department for organizing this grand event that celebrates Jammu and its colorful rich culture, dance, music, food, vibrant costumes and beautiful handicrafts.
He said such type of festival was organized with a view to put Jammu region's cultural diversity on display for national and international tourist fraternity but leaving aside the local artists of Jammu region will not be tolerated at any cost. Kohli said that Dogri artists who are getting appreciation from across the globe and ignoring them in such significant event raised eye-brows towards the authorities sitting at the helm of affairs.
He said that in the three-day festival titled 'Jammu Mahotsav', the Tourism Department had invited artists like Aabha Hanjura, a Kashmiri Sufi Singer and Sherry Mann, a Punjabi Pop singer.
Kohli made it clear that three-day festival based on Jammu and the main thrust of department should be on highlighting the artists of Jammu region. He said the department has spent lakhs of rupees for the performance of artists invited from other states thus ignoring the local artists. We are not against the Punjabi artists or artists from other states, we just want that instead of calling the artists from other States, the government should promote the local artists and also highlight the rich heritage and culture of Jammu region which is disappearing day by day.
