Kerala Tourism attracted media attention with their tweet as Karnataka was heading to a hung assembly as no party got a clear majority.

In a cheeky tweet, the Kerala Tourism Department found a way to promote themselves while making a veiled comment at the resort politics that Karnataka's politicians are famous for.

The since-deleted tweet, which invited all Karnataka MLAs to unwind at the "safe" and lovely resorts of Kerala, appeared to be tongue-in-cheek at first glance. The Kerala Tourism department had extended the invitation through its official twitter handle.

The humorous message was put out on Tuesday evening, after speculations of "resort politics" started doing the rounds, and has been met with enthusiastic replies with many appreciating the creativity of the tourism department.
