New Delhi, May 15 (PTI) The Kerala government today made an amazing offer to the newly-elected Karnataka MLAs facing the melee of a hung verdict — unwind in Gods Own Country.

“After the rough and tumble of the #KarnatakaVerdict, we invite all the MLAs to unwind at the safe and beautiful resorts of God’s Own Country,” Kerala Tourism tweeted with a ‘Come Out And Play’ hashtag.
Within hours, it was retweeted almost 5,500 times and liked by almost 9,000 people.
The tweet, amidst political uncertainty in Karnataka, went viral on the microblogging site, with twitterati appreciating the humour of the tourism department of the Left Front government in Kerala.
Many referred to the tweet as “trolling of Karnataka MLAs by Kerala Tourism”.
Incidentally, Union Tourism Minister Alphons Kannanthanam is from Kerala.
The BJP emerged as the single largest party in Karnataka with the Congress coming second and the JD(S) a distant third. The Congress and the JD(S) have joined hands and staked claim to form a government.
