Famous for its miniature paintings, Basohli, a small town in Kathua district, is situated on the right bank of the Ravi river at an altitude of 1,876 ft.

The BJP leader said that the art and painting of Basohli is hailed and promoted worldwide except in Jammu and Kashmir which is a sad irony.

"This as a glaring instance of cultural discrimination with Jammu due to Kashmir-centric approach of the government," he said during a campaigning in Kathua district.

The monuments and scenic spots of the area, deserve to be developed as tourist spots, he added.

"If BJP is given representation in the Lok Sabha, it will strive for justice and due attention for Basohli," Singh promised.
