Union Minister for Petroleum and Natural Gas Dharmendra Pradhan on Sunday called for the prime tourist cities in the country to completely switch to clean fuels.

Addressing a virtual meet on the occasion of World Tourism Day, along with Minister for Tourism Prahlad Singh Patel, Pradhan said that such a move towards sustainability will help protect the country's monuments and ensure a cleaner environment for the tourists, an official statement said.

Pradhan also noted that the tourism industry offers unprecedented potential for employment generation and empowerment of the youth, also in the rural areas.

He said that "every district of our country has a historic story to share or a legend to narrate, and as India celebrates 75 years of independence in 2022, we must work on creating more tourism sites around the heroism of our freedom fighters."
