Chill in Gods Own Country: Kerala govt to Karnataka MLAs

Kerala Tourism made the offer on Twitter amid frantic efforts by the BJP, Congress and JD(S) to cobble up the numbers to form a government. "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.

Single largest parties weren't invited to form govt in Goa, Manipur: Yechury
CPI(M) General Secretary Sitaram Yechury today said the single largest parties in Goa, Manipur and Meghalaya were not invited to form government and the same rules should be followed in Karnataka. "BJP govt appointed Governors didn't invite Single Largest Party in either Goa, 2017 (INC, 17 out of 40 seats), Manipur 2017 (INC 28 of 60) or Meghalaya 2018 (INC 21 out of 60). Union ministers gave arguments supporting them. The precedent is there to follow, right? "Same 'rules' followed when state governments were formed in Goa, Manipur and Bihar recently, must be followed now. Sauce for the goose must be sauce for the gander! JD(S)-Congress are together, past the majority mark & must be called to form the govt and take the floor test," Yechury wrote on Twitter.
