This boost in tourism interest comes amidst a controversy where Maldivian politicians ridiculed PM Modi’s visit to Lakshadweep. In response, the Maldives government rejected the derogatory remarks against PM Modi, emphasizing that these comments did not reflect the views of Male. The increased attention on Lakshadweep on travel platforms like MakeMyTrip suggests a positive impact on the region’s tourism following the Prime Minister’s visit.
