Prakash Raj calls his loss a tight slap on his face
Actor Prakash Raj contested in the Lok Sabha Elections 2019 as an independent candidate in Bengaluru Central. However, he suffered a massive defeat as opposed to his belief and called it a slap in his face.
Prakash Raj tweeted, “A SOLID SLAP on my face as More ABUSE, TROLL, and HUMILIATION come my way. I WILL STAND MY GROUND. My RESOLVE to FIGHT for SECULAR INDIA will continue. A TOUGH JOURNEY AHEAD HAS JUST BEGUN. THANK YOU, EVERYONE, WHO WERE WITH ME IN THIS JOURNEY. JAI HIND (sic).”
Prakash Raj had to face tough competition in Bengaluru Central with Congress’s Rizwan Arshad and BJP’s PC Mohan. Sadly, he couldn’t gather enough votes to clinch victory.
On January 1, Prakash Raj confirmed his entry into politics. He has been vocal about his opinions on social media and other places as well. He was also critical of PM Narendra Modi’s governance.
