On his visit to Mandya, Karnataka to offer his respects to a deceased CRPF soldier, the actor-turned-politician Prakash Raj faced severe embarrassment after a group of villagers exposed the actor’s hypocrisy towards India’s Armed Forces.
According to reports, Prakash Raj had visited Maddur Taluk, Mandya district of Karnataka to take part in the funeral of CRPF soldier H Guru, who was martyred during the Pulwama terror attack. During his visit to Mellahalli where the soldier was laid to rest, some angry villagers objected to the presence of Prakash Raj and reportedly protested against him.
However, the actor reportedly waited till the evening to meet the bereaved family of martyr Guru and also claimed to help the family of the martyr. Meanwhile, Prakash Raj travelled to the KM Doddi village of the district in the evening to address a group of villagers who had assembled at the spot.
Prakash Raj delivered a speech stating that people should forget their differences and unitedly fight against evil forces that whenever such attacks or atrocities happen. The hypocrisy of the actor-turned-politician seems to have angered the villagers as one of the villagers present in the crowd questioned Raj’s dubious standards, pointing out that he speaks in favour of the soldiers only when such incidents happen and remembered Prakash Raj that how he abuses the armed forces rest of the time.
Soon after he was exposed, Prakash Raj went on to argue that he spoke about the issues of farmer every day and said that people who are using this event to further their political agenda are the real ‘traitors’. Angered by such comments, the villagers assembled at the spot started chanting pro-Modi slogans further embarrassing Prakash Raj. The chants of Bharat Mata ki Jai were also chanted leaving Prakash Raj furious, who then fled the spot.
Prakash Raj, the ultra-left wing ideologue, who is often known for joining hands with the left-liberals to express their hate towards Hindus and the BJP, has plans to contest the upcoming general elections from Bengaluru Central Lok Sabha constituency. Raj is also eyeing to be the joint Mahagathbandhan candidate of the opposition party to take on the incumbent BJP MP PC Mohan. Raj had recently met Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal to seek the support of his party for his candidacy.
Prakash Raj had stoked a controversy recently after he had foul-mouthed against the Hinduism stating that he had “no respect” for the religion which “prevents women from worshipping” by falsely bringing reference of age-old custom of Sabarimala temple. With no respects for facts, Prakash Raj had deliberately insulted Hinduism to further his hate towards Hindus.
