Actor R Madhavan offers support to PM Modi to urge voters to cast votes in elections, gets trolled by ‘liberals’

Now urging people to come out and exercise their right to vote is also considered 'supporting Modi'

Actor R Madhavan in a response to a tweet by the Prime Minister Narendra Modi on the micro-blogging site thanked Modi for his unrelenting passion for strengthening the democracy in this country and extended his support in assisting Modi in his endeavour.

PM Modi has been urging celebrities including actors and sportspersons to use their stardom to encourage voters to come out and exercise their right to vote in the upcoming general elections. Prime Minister Modi had tweeted that since the people of the country admire actors like Madhavan and Hrithik if they come out and help in increasing voter awareness, it would strengthen India’s democracy.

However, R Madhavan’s appeal to his fan base to come out and vote didn’t go down too well with those who like to identify themselves as ‘liberals’. The respectful titles he used to address the prime minister of the country were mocked.

Soon, the so-called liberals were hounding him, asking whether he’d say the same if other politicians had asked him to urge his fans to vote. Which is kind of silly to begin with because he was asking people to vote, not specifying whom to vote for.

Madhavan, like any sensible individual who knows how a responsible citizen should behave, replied he would have done the same had it been any other politician asking him to lend his voice for a cause.

At that point, the focus shifted to Madhavan’s way of replying which ‘dog whistled trolls’ to descend upon their timelines.

A visibly clueless Madhavan apologised if anyone felt abused, but held his ground. At that point, he was again hounded.

As bizarre as it sounds, R Madhavan had to face the anger from ‘liberals’ not because he asked people to go out and vote, but because he did so to support PM Modi who is urging everyone to go out and vote. This is the second time in ten days’ time that he had to face the wrath of the ‘liberals’ for voicing his views. A few days back, in reacting to a distasteful video posted by Congress when China blocked Masood Azhar from being named as a global terrorist for the fourth time, Madhavan had been critical. The criticism, too, had not gone too well with the ‘liberals’.
