While interacting with the officers concerned during the presentation, Kumar said, “The Bihar government has already taken several steps to protect the environment. While finalising the eco-tourism policy, we must remain careful that nature is not harmed in any way.” The eco-tourism policy will also increase awareness among people about protecting environment and animals and conservation of nature in a better way, he said.

Kumar said eco-tourism will be promoted in Valmiki Nagar in West Champaran district.

Valmiki Nagar is a famous tourist spot where a dam has been built on the river Gandak. Besides, there is a national park and tiger reserve near the area where Maharshi Valmiki, the author of the Ramayan, is said to have passed some years.
