Sunday 17 October, 2021 | PNS | Nainital

As experienced every year during this period in tourist destinations of Uttarakhand, Nainital experienced major traffic jams on this extended weekend as the preparations of the authorities failed to meet the expected arrivals and resulting situation in the town on Saturday, a day after the festival of Dussehra. The arrival of tourists in Nainital began in the morning. Many of the tourists were made to park their vehicles at Charkhet and ferried by shuttle to Nainital. However, many tourists had reached Nainital by 10 AM which caused traffic jams at many locations in the town. The experience in Nainital on this extended weekend only went on to substantiate the general allegation that despite all so called preparations, the police and district administrations governing popular tourist destinations within their districts like Mussoorie and Nainital have utterly failed to even prepare properly. The bookings by tourists were known beforehand and the authorities had an idea of the expected footfall, despite which they failed to do the needful as in past years
