Kerala Tourism salutes Taj Mahal for inspiring millions to discover India

The Kerala Tourism department has thanked the Taj Mahal for “inspiring millions to discover India” amid controversies triggered by Bharatiya Janata Party leaders questioning the origin and heritage of the monument of love.The Kerala Tourism handle did not refer to the controversial remarks by BJP leaders in its tweet.The Taj Mahal is India s top tourism destination but has received a barrage of negative comments from top BJP leaders, including chief minister Yogi Adityanath – who in June said the ivory-white marble mausoleum didn t represent “Indian culture”. The 17th century structure has also seen a steady decline in footfall in recent years and is battling mounting pollution.Twitter users said Kerala Tourism is teaching a lesson to its Uttar Pradesh counterpart on how to do its job.
