The Shankaracharya is learnt to have asked her to pave way for the formation of a separate ministry for enhancing tourism in the state.
The ascetic is of the firm view that formation of a separate ministry which caters to the interests of tourism exclusively would go a long way in boosting the economy of the state which is known as tourism state.
He is understood to have told the Governor that the focus should be trained on spiritual tourism rather than on the conventional tourism, the State being exalted as Devbhumi, the abode of Gods.
