Workers of H.D. Deve Gowda‘s Janata Dal (Secular), a party which like the Congress has taken grassroots politics to five-star spas, perform a mock funeral of the Bharatiya Janata Party in Belgaum on Saturday, in protest against the BJP’s “resort politics”.

Dozens of god-fearing legislators of God’s Own Party are shamlessly luxuriating in hotels, bars and resorts in various locations, counting their chickens before they are biriyani-ed, while the honourable chief minister, wedded to “development” and “governance” sheds tears for the TV cameras.
