Modi hating actor Prakash Raj spreads lies on Twitter, again

Prakash Raj has been incredibly politically active in the recent times. The actor turned politician often makes no sense and harbours a pathological hate for Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Today, Raj went a step further and tried to tarnish the PM’s successful UK trip where just yesterday, he had interacted with the diaspora in a hugely successful event.

From his Facebook page, Prakash Raj shared a post claiming that things are falling apart and the Centre cannot hold them together anymore. He wondered if the people who “troll” and “threaten” him hear the “voices getting louder”. He wondered if such people will “continue to brand them anti-national”.

All the pictures shared by Prakash Raj were old pictures from different protests and had nothing to with the Prime Minister’s recent visit.

Picture 1: 

The first picture shared by Prakash Raj :

As it turns out, this picture is from 2015 protest where Shiromani Akali Dal (Amritsar) had staged a protest against Narendra Modi outside the UNO in New York. In this protest, pro-Khalistani and anti-Modi slogans were also raised.

Picture 2 : 

The second picture shared by Prakash Raj :

This is also a picture from September 2015 during his second trip to the United States of America. Many would recall Modi’s interaction with Mark Zuckerberg during this trip too.

This image specifically is of a protest by a group called Alliance for Justice and Accountability (AJA) over his supposed culpability in the 2002 Gujarat riots, one he has been given a clean chit for by the Supreme Court.

Picture 3 :

The third picture shared by Prakash Raj :

This picture shared by Prakash Raj is an even older image from the year 2013 before Modi was elected as the Prime Minister. The picture is from a protest outside Delhi University when the then Prime Ministership contender Modi was delivering a speech to a cheering audience in the University. This protest was held by leftist outfits that are known to spread untruths and propaganda.

Picture 4 :

The fourth and last picture shared by Prakash Raj

The above picture is also from 2015 when Prime Minister Narendra Modi was on his second trip to the United States of America and AJA (Alliance for Justice and Accountability) had protested against him.

This is not the first time Prakash Raj has been caught spreading fake news. We had written about how Raj had spread fake news about BJP in a bid to malign Yogi Adityanath. He had also distorted BJP leader Ananth Kumar Hegde’s statements to mislead people on Social Media. His hypocrisy and political opportunism were also evident when he spoke about the Mahadayi row but earlier had refused to comment on the Kaveri dispute.

Raj in his post had wondered if he would be called anti-national for #JustAsking. Perhaps this could be a wake-up call for the actor turned politician, that he might not be called anti-national for asking questions, but using old pictures to discredit a visit to a foreign nation by an Indian Prime Minister, to score political points, certainly can be called an anti-national narrative.
