Award winning Bollywood actor Prakash Raj, who is known for not mincing his words, once again made the headlines after he took a jibe on Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP.
While speaking to media in press club of Bengaluru, targeted the Modi government and stated there is a section of the country who would like to correct their mistake of 2014.
"I believe there is a silent majority in this country, which given a chance, wants to correct its mistake," Prakash was quoted as saying.
He further added, "Things have changed since 2014. Even earlier dissent was silenced, but that was because they wanted to hold on to power, like emergency. But today it is done for ideological reasons. There is a hunger to hold on to what they have".
Interestingly, this is not the first time Actor Prakash Raj has targeted PM Modi. Earlier, the veteran actor had on PM Modi last month when few people were celebrating death of Gauri Lankesh on social media.
Prakash Raj said, “We don’t know who killed my dear friend Gauri Lankesh, but we can see the people who are celebrating her murder. In my life, I have never seen so much abuse like what happens on social media. Some people followed by our Prime Minister on Twitter spew venom. And the Prime Minister turns a blind eye to this.”
He said he is not worried about trolling on social media and he will continue to speak. He said trolling makes you more stronger.
When he was asked about National Anthem row, Prakash said," I will stand for it even if I'm at home. What is so special about cinema halls? You should not inject it".
