With the Karnataka voting in a split verdict, the political parties are trying to keep their own MLAs safe from poaching.
With no party reaching the magic mark of 112 – and the BJP emerging as single largest party to form government, the next few days are set to be busy and chaotic.
Thus the Kerala Tourism however spotted an opportunity in all of this.
A light-hearted dig from neighbouring Kerala referring to the “rough and tumble” of the Karnataka verdict amused many on Twitter.
Though the twitter post has now been deleted, it had invited Karnataka’s newly-elected lawmakers to the “safe and beautiful” resorts of God’s Own Country.
“After the rough and tumble of the #KarnatakaVerdict, we invite all the MLAs to unwind at the safe & beautiful resorts of God’s Own Country,” Kerala Tourism tweeted yesterday.
The tweet may have been a jibe at politically turbulent times in Tamil Nadu, when 120 lawmakers from AIADMK were sequestered for days at a resort outside Chennai by VK Sasikala, who wanted to prevent anyone joining “rebel” O Panneerselvam or OPS.>
