Chandigarh, Oct 27 (UNI) The 'Viratroop' of Lord Krishna, as described in the Bhagwad Gita, will now be displayed through a laser show on the waters of holy Brahmasarovar at Kururkshetra.

Haryana Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda, while presiding over Board of Governors of the Kurukshetra Development Board (KDB), directed the Haryana Tourism that a composite proposal on this mega tourism project of laser show should be prepared on priority basis for promotion of tourism in the State.

The Chief Minister directed the Haryana Irrigation Department to supply canal water to the pilgrim centre of Pehowa on alternate week basis instead of 8 days in a month.

Mr Hooda said that over-all development of the holy city of Kurukshetra including various tirthas and other religious places around Kurukshetra should also be given an attractive look with a view to attract a number of tourists and pilgrims from within the country and abroad.

He directed the officers concerned with the development, renovation and maintenance works of the KDB projects to execute the ongoing works of KDB on top-most priority.

It was also decided that a fly-over costing Rs 35 crore would be constructed near Sunderpur Railway Crossing Kurukshetra to facilitate the traffic in this area.

It was also decided that Group Gratuity Scheme would also be implemented through Life Insurance Corporation (LIC) for the employees of the KDB. The estimate budget of the Kurukshetra Development Board amounting to Rs 5.50 crore for the year 2008-09 was also approved in the meeting.

The Board also accorded approval for the allotment of land to the World Renewal Spiritual Trust (Prajapita Brahmakumari) on the collector rate.
