A comprehensive plan will be drawn up soon to develop Jog into a tourism hub, Minister for Tourism R.V. Deshpande has said.
The Minister, who is the chairman of the Jog Management Authority (JMA), was speaking at the general body meeting of the authority at Jog in Sagar taluk on Saturday. He said the jurisdiction of the JMA would be expanded by bringing tourism places in Shimoga and Uttara Kannada districts under its purview.
It has been planned to organise Jog Utsav every year on the lines of the annual cultural festivals being held in Hampi, Pattadakal and Banavasi. The event would provide a platform for local artistes to showcase their talent.
