Omission of Taj from UP tourism booklet tragic, funny: Congress

New Delhi Oct 2 (IANS) The Congress on Monday termed the omission of the Taj Mahal not being included in an Uttar Pradesh Tourism Department booklet listing tourist attractions in the state both a joke and a tragedy.



"If it is a booklet on tourism and it excludes Taj Mahal at one level it is a joke and at another level it is tragic. It is like saying we will have (William Shakespeare s) Hamlet without the Prince of Denmark " said Congress spokesman Abhishek Manu Singhvi.

"How can you imagine tourism in Uttar Pradesh or India without Taj Mahal I cannot understand. If it is indeed a booklet on tourism and excludes the Taj it shows a clear religious bias which is completely misplaced " he added.

Singhvi said that "such pettiness diminishes" India.

A Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government led by Yogi Adityanath is in power in the state.
