Amber Fort, Historical Place, historical Monuments, Jaipur, Rajasthan, Tourist Spot, Tourist Place, Deserted Look
Usually, with winters beginning to settle in, the city attracts scores of tourists from across the world to the princely heritage sites. But the latest demonetisation masterstroke by the PM Narendra Modi has pulled the crowd out of the tourists spots and instead made them flock towards banks and ATMs. This makes for a rare contrasting picture- Amber Fort wearing a deserted look as it stands silent in sublime surroundings while droves of people stand in long queues waiting for endless hours to get their hands off scrapped currency and on new notes. Even those foreign tourists who are already in the city are equally troubled as they are unable to use smaller denominations. Though the move by the government aims to flush out black money, it has caught the people off guard and most of them are sweating hard outside banks to meet unavoidable expenses, thus keeping everything else on the back burner. Not just the tourism industry, but also other sectors are facing slowdown in their respective businesses.- SUMAN SARKAR.DNA
