AP Govt's Flop Events in Visakha : Careless Govt ..!
Visakhapatnam in AP has got a special recognition for its vast beach and graceful nature which drove AP govt in developing it as a tourist hub. Govt is organising special programs by spending lot of money every month to attract visitors while allotting the event management to a Delhi company for years.Tourism department has spent Rs 11 crores for the events so far, getting nothing in return. Govt has paid Rs 3 crores to the company for the recently held 3-day Balloon Festival which was a disaster. People say that lack of publicity is the main reason for the failure of Sound on sands & Yatching festival.
