Lucknow, Feb 2 (IANS) New tourist spots would be opened as part of a new tourism policy in Uttar Pradesh, an official said on Tuesday.

Under this new policy, the infrastructure at existing tourist destinations would be further strengthened and made more attractive, and many new tourist spots would also be opened, Principal Secretary (Tourism) Navneet Sehgal told IANS.
