Rajasthan is up with its colourful challenge with a new hashtag that says #SafaWithTwotter. The Tourism Minister of Rajasthan, Vishvendra Singh Bharatpur started the trend by putting his picture in Rajasthani turban and nominated Deputy Chief Minister Sachin Pilot, Makrana MLA Ruparam and Parbatsar MLA Ramniwas Gawariya.
Vishvendra Singh said that ” “We are committed to promoting tourism in Rajasthan and why not promote it with a symbol which stands for Rajasthan world over – the traditional turban. I have been overwhelmed by the response and hope that it becomes a global trend in the coming days.”
The individuality of turban is so much that one who has the knowledge about the cloth, colour and ties of the turban can recognize a person that he belongs to such area or caste.
Starting #SafaWithTwitter to promote Rajasthan globally and domestically ! Upload your photo wearing a Safa. I further nominate @SachinPilot Sahib, @mlaruparam Ji, @ParveenKaswan Bhai, and @RamniwasGawriya! pic.twitter.com/jDt7dJjU3g

The trend started by tourism minister Vishvendra Singh caught up not only with the Congress leader but few from Haryana and Madhya Pradesh also jumped in. Ruparam the congress MLA from Makrana became so overwhelmed with the concept that he put a picture in the traditional rural dress of Rajasthan – Dhoti, Kurta and Safa.

Wazid Ali Khas, the Congress MLA from Nagar in Bharatpur posted picture in traditional Mewati turban.
In support of the call to promote Rajasthani culture, domestically and internationally. Almost every district of Rajasthan has a history and behind each there's an interesting story. The hospitality and generousness of the people have touched my heart and soul.
