  1. In tourism infrastructure suitable camping sites on NHs must be developed with five star toilets at suitable intervals. Thousand crores are spent on NHs but usable toilets are not built by NH authorities for the users of NHs. Men are compelled to releive the pressure by standing on roads but ladies are suffers badly because toilets available with road side dhabas are in poor conditions. No authority is taking action in this matters. High class & VIPs donot faces this problem.
    Hence Govt is unaware of this problem.
    How the foreigners feel when they see people urinating on road sides.
    The GOI has such budget as Road Side Amenities and this money was utilized by HRTC in HP; we all knows conditions of toilets of HRTC.

    1. Your suggestions are very pertinent since bieng involved in buliding tourism infrastructure in the state your experiences are most valuable.
      Hope state government would work on the issue.
      Thank you so much Thakur Sahib.
