Congress's Mohan Kumaramangalam tweeted an unusual picture to mark the conclusion of the poll campaign in Tamil Nadu on Sunday. Instead of sharing photos from the campaign trail, Mr Kumaramangalam tweeted a picture of his worn-out slippers.
"The end of a campaign," wrote Mr Kumaramangalam, who is contesting from the Omalur seat in Salem district. "I can honestly say I left it all on the field and saved nothing for the ride home. In god we trust and god comes in all shapes and sizes," he added.
His picture shows a pair of slippers, so well-worn that its black exterior has peeled off in certain parts.
