Folk singers enthralled local residents and tourists in Srinagar at Dal Lake as part of a weekend music festival. The festival was a part of 'Valley Weekends' a government initiative aimed at boosting tourism in the valley. As part of this initiative, different programmes are organised every weekend to engage local artists and provide entertainment options to tourists. Such events should be given importance as they strengthen our economy, said resident. Tourists coming in is good news for the tourism sector which has suffered in view of particularly low footfall since July last year when the death of a separatist militant triggered unrest.
