  11. want to bee starton Page 5: Fear over tourist centre close to Buddhist site th The inauguration earlier this month ofa plaque and the laying of a foundation stone for the construction of a tourist amenities centre close to the second century BCE Buddhist site at Thotlakonda in Visakhapatnam has worried heritage conservationists and members of Indian National Trust for Art and Cultural Heritage (INTACH). The proposed centre includes an amphitheatre, rest rooms and information centre. Experts point out that the buildings will not only mar the original heritage site but are also against norms laid down by the courts. Protected area The Thotlakonda site was first discovered in 1976. In 1978, the A.P. government declared the entire site a protected monument Later, the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) demarcated about seven acres consisting of the stupa area as the core area and fenced it. The agency also fenced another 120 acres as protected area. The conservationists contend that the new buildings are not only coming up within the protected 120 acres but just about 40 metres from the core area. ad In 2016, the AP High Court had passed an order prohibiting construction or development activity of any sort within the boundaries of the ancient site of Thotlakonda District Tourism Officer, however, said there had been no violations and the construction activity was being taken up 100 metres from the core area. es that

The restrictions had been imposed due to violations by the foreign journalists in travelling to restricted/protected areas that require prior permission/special permit. It is understood that the government has been particularly careful about permitting travel to J&K after the publication of the UN's Human Rights Council report in June, the first of its kind, that slammed India over alleged violations in J&K as well as Pakistan-occupied Kashmir, advising India to remember its promises on "self-determination" to the population in Kashmir. ink h cause ferent PLI uy, Ivis kand stay
