DHARAMSALA: Dharamsala will be one of the most beautiful towns of North India, Himachal Pradesh minister Sudhir Sharma claimed today, while inviting a Hong Kong based company to look into the city's urban plan.

"We have invited a Hong Kong based company to look at the urban plan of Dharamsala. We will ensure that the city is not turned into places like Shimla and Manali that do not have any open space," Sharma, Minister of Urban Development said.

"I believe Dharamshala will become one of the most beautiful towns of North India," he said.

Sharma, also the local MLA, underlined the efforts taken by his ministry to turn the fortunes of the town.

"This is the first town in state where roads have been paved, round the clock water supply would soon be provided and laying of underground pipelines is being done," he said.

The minister noted that survey is on to expand Gaggal airport here to facilitate operation of jet liners in the coming years as well as the work on two rope ways, from

Kotwali Bazar to Mecleodganj and Chamunda to Himani Chamunda, would soon begin.

The rope ways would allow tourists to visit Dalai Lama's home place and the snow capped range without being stuck in traffic, Sharma said.

Many parking areas are also coming up in the town and its surrounding areas, he said.

The minister, however, complained that some local contractors and businessmen are not meeting quality standard in their work and harassing the public by selective construction of roads and other development works.
