NEW DELHI: Tourism min­is­ter Alphons Kan­nan­thanam on Thurs­day said re­quest­ing self­ies with for­eign­ers was an in­tru­sion of their pri­vacy. “It’s not a right thing to do, why don’t you leave the tourists alone, why are we so ob­sessed with white skin. It’s an in­tru­sion into their pri­vacy,” he said while ad­dress­ing the CII an­nual tourism sum­mit — In­ter­na­tional Year of Sus­tain­able Tourism for De­vel­op­ment — here. On re­cent at­tacks on for­eign tourists, the min­is­ter said some of them were trig­gered af­ter lo­cals in­sisted on hav­ing self­ies with them.
