Earlier in the day, Tharoor welcomed Congress President Rahul Gandhi's decision to contest from Wayanad, Kerala in quite an artistic way. He posted a superimposed picture of Rahul on an image of a forest, welcoming him to Wayanad. Twitter users, donning their creativity and humour caps, too, joined in.

Of Kerala's 20 Lok Sabha seats, Thiruvananthapuram is the one that is expected to see a cracker of a contest, with three heavyweights in the fray - Congress Shashi Tharoor who seeks a hat-trick of wins from the constituency, former Mizoram Governor Kummanem Rajasekheran and CPI legislator and former state Minister C Divakaran.

With tough competition looming, Tharoor seems to have pushed off his campaign blitz with a bang.
