New Delhi, Jan 13 (IANS) The Bihar tourism department Friday launched its second edition of the ‘Discover Bihar’ roadshow in the capital to promote tourism in the state.

Exhibiting the culture and heritage of Bihar, the two day-long roadshow will have performance from the Sangeet Sangam Seva Group of Bihar on folk songs in local languages like Bhojpuri, Maithili, Magadhi and others.

“People do not know about Bihar’s wildlife and its camping sites, and adventure sports. We want people to know that our state also has all these things,” said Navin Kumar, deputy general manager, Department of Tourism.

In 2011, Bihar attracted about 1,32,33,304 tourists out of which only 5,27,773 were foreign ones.

“To further increase the number of tourists, the Bihar State Tourism Development Corporation Ltd. unveiled the various plans it has undertaken to accomplish its objective of popularising the state’s tourism, which includes developing basic infrastructure,” Kumar said at the launch.

“It is the beginning and we hope that Bihar will do some good tourism. This event will be a window into Bihar tourism,” said Navin Kumar.
