As can be seen in the video, a large number of Modi supporters raised “Modi! Modi!” slogans as Prakash Raj arrived at the venue. In a futile attempt to calm down the growing chants of Modi supporters, Raj raised slogans such as “Down Down Modi” but the overwhelming number of the Modi supporters remained unaffected by Raj’s sloganeering.
Prakash Raj was also booked for poll code violation in Bengaluru by the Election Commission. Raj is accused of using mike to canvass for votes and campaigning at a public rally held at MG Road in the city. Prakash Raj has filed his Lok Sabha nomination papers from the central Bengaluru constituency.
