He said that steps were being taken to restore its beauty to appeal foreign tourists and added that the public and private partnership was also under consideration in this regard.
Baloch informed that with the coordination of Indus Hotel Hyderabad and the Sindh Endowment Fund, the lodging and boarding for tourists would be arranged. “Vehicles and tourist guides would also be provided for city’s tour while meals would also be served to them,” he added.
