While unveiling the new Tourism Policy 2021-25, Gujarat Chief Minister Vijay Rupani in January said the Statue of Unity (SoU) at Kevadiya received more visitors than the Taj Mahal in Agra. The new policy aims to develop specific areas in the state. Similar to the concept in the West, the government also wants to develop caravan and beach tourism like in Goa.
Addressing the media, the Gujarat CM said, “We want to boost the service sector industry by developing the tourism infrastructure in the state. In the latest tourism policy we have stressed more on developing specific focused areas like we have developed the SoU site at Kevadiya. The SoU has received an overwhelming response from tourists as it receives more visitors than the famous Taj Mahal.”
