A four-day 'Destination Northeast' festival will be held in Varanasi in November tofamiliarise the people with the rich, unexplored potential and opportunities available in the region, Union Minister Jitendra Singh said on Sunday.
The festival in Varanasi will be a sequel to the 'Destination NorthEast' series begun about three years ago, as part of which, such festivals have already been held in places like Chandigarh and Delhi.
The four-day festival on the Northeast will be held at Varanasi from November 23, Singh, Union Minister for Development of the North Eastern Region (DoNER), said here.
The concept behind holding such events is to familiarise the people in other parts of India with the rich, unexplored potential, avenues and opportunities that the Northeast has to offer for the rest of the world, he said.
