New Delhi: The tug of war of who will form the government in Karnataka continues for the second consecutive day on Wednesday. The state has witnessed a tough contest between the BJP and the Congress. The next few days are going to be busy and chaotic with none of the parties reaching the magical mark of 112.

A light-hearted dig from neighbouring Kerala referring to the "rough and tumble" of the Karnataka verdict amused many. A tweet by Kerala tourism, which has now been deleted, 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 on Tuesday.

The tweet may have been a jibe at the politically chaotic times in Tamil Nadu, when 120 AIADMK MLAs were isolated for days at a resort outside Chennai by VK Sasikala, who wanted to prevent anyone joining "rebel" O Panneerselvam.

At the time of writing, the tweet had over 10,000 'likes' and over 6,000 retweets. The tweet has since then been deleted.

Both the BJP and the Congress-Janata Dal Secular have staked claim to form the government in Karnataka. 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.
