New Delhi: Minister of State for Tourism K.J. Alphons Monday took charge of his Ministry and said the new assignment was a 'big responsibility'.

"There is a lot of potential in our tourism sector but first we will have to love ourselves and love India then we can attract tourists from other countries," he said, a day after taking oath as MoS with independent charge.

Alphons said that getting such an important Ministry under Prime Minister Narendra Modi was a 'pleasant surprise' for him.

"It's a big responsibility and incredible job to be done," he said.
