On Wednesday, following Gauri Lankesh’s murder in Bengaluru, Kerala Congress handle on Twitter posted a picture of Lankesh’s dead body lying in pool of blood with map of India drawn around her claiming this is how India will look without Congress.
Soon after realising how insensitive it looked, Kerala Congress deleted the above tweet.
