Chief Minister Yogi Adinath passed Uttar Pradesh’s new policy on Wednesday. The new policy looks at creating Uttar Pradesh as the hub of spiritual and religious tourism in India. Under this policy, many new religious circuits as well as various craft circuits will also be developed. According to the new UP tourism policy, there will be about 22 tourist-friendly facilities and some activities as well.
