According to a statement released by the ministry of home affairs (MHA), the decision will help improve livelihoods in Lakshadweep.
“The union home minister directed everybody concerned to expedite the implementation of ongoing key infrastructure projects on the islands and develop community-based tourism in consultation with local stakeholders.”
