Deshpande will continue to hold the tourism ministry as an additional portfolio.

“The minor reshuffle has taken place in view of the upcoming third Karnataka Global Investors Meet (GIM) to be held here in November for attracting investments from overseas and across the country,” said a senior official.

Deshpande, 68, is a five-time lawmaker from Haliyal assembly segment in Uttara Kannada district, about 440 km from here.

He held the industry portfolio for over a decade in past in the H.D. Deve Gowda and the J.H. Patel-led Janata Dal-United government (1994-1999) and then in the S.M. Krishna’s Congress government (1999-2004).
