With the aim of promoting tourism in Andhra Pradesh, Union Minister of State for Tourism K Chiranjeevi said he will take initiatives to develop Kuchipudi village as a destination. Located in the Krishna district, Kuchipudi village is famous for being the place where the dance form, with the same name, originated.
“The Kuchipudi classical dance has not received sufficient importance due to lack of marketing and publicity,” Chiranjeevi said. “The village requires better infrastructure to become a tourist destination.”
He also added that the Centre will be preparing blueprints to provide and develop basic infrastructure, which includes cottages, transport links, hotels and safety of the tourists visiting the state.
Chiranjeevi also stated his ministry will be re-developing tourist locations in the state, including Amaravathi, Araku, Kondapalli, Ramappa temple and Kolleru.
