Posts on Facebook and Twitter were event translated into different languages as part of the entertainment.
The poll campaign is hotting up with Sumalatha confirming that she is not going back on contesting the election. Many Whatsapp groups are flooded with posts like “rush to safer places as the tears of Deve Gowda’s family may cause floods in Mandya that was hit by drought for all these years”.
A Twitter handle said, “the place would turn into a river before people go to ballot on the polling day”.
