Unwind In Our Resorts: Kerala Tourism's Cheeky Dig At Karnataka Lawmakers

Outgoing speaker Koliwad attacks Siddaramaiah

The Congress party in Karnataka too had previously taken independent MLA candidates to a hotel in Mumbai in 2016 to keep them from defecting to the BJP before the Rajya Sabha polls, though the candidates were brought back after much condemnation of the same. In comments, many suggested Kerala Tourism was "trolling" Karnataka's MLAs.

The tweet said, "After the rough and tumble of the Karnataka Verdict, we invite all the MLAs to unwind at the safe & attractive resorts of God's Own Country".

The BJP emerged as the single largest party in Karnataka with the Congress coming second and the JD (S) a distant third. Following the fractured mandate "resort-politics" and "horse-trading" were back in political discussions in the state. When it was clear that the BJP was struggling to reach the half-way mark, the Congress reached out to JD (S) leader and former Prime Minister H D Deve Gowda and agreed that his son Kumaraswamy would be the Chief Minister of a coalition government.

Hear Christina Aguilera and Demi Lovato Join Forces on "Fall in Line"
On Wednesday, May 16, 2018, the singers released their collaboration, titled, " Fall in Line ". Even in that conversation we had, he would go on about other subjects and stuff like that.

The need for a "friendly" government to host MLAs matters particularly as police security may be necessary and the Congress seemingly has few options to offer on that front, with just three far-flung states in its control.

Ahead of Rajya Sabha elections in Gujarat past year, the Congress flew its MLAs from the state to a five-star resort in Karnataka capital Bengaluru. While netizens were sparring over the tweet, some seasoning it with their own spices to the now common horse-trading business of politics, the Congress and the JD (S) chose to host MLAs at the Shangri-La Hotel in Bangalore.

The CPI (M), not surprisingly, is tight-lipped about the possibility of hosting (read protecting) Congress-JD (S) MLAs as the Congress remains its main rival in Kerala. The word "safe" in the Kerala Tourism tweet may have deeper political symbolism than most would think!
