Actor-turned-politician Prakash Raj, who entered the election fray to change the brand of politics has been shown his place as he managed to get paltry 28,000 odd votes in a constituency where total votes polled was almost 12 lakhs. Raj, who was hailed as a revolutionary crusader by the Lutyens Media took to Twitter to concede his embarrassing defeat from Bangalore Central.

In a tweet posted by him, Raj acknowledges the mortifying defeat handed to him by the votaries of his constituency. The Wanted actor stated that it is a “SOLD SLAP” on his face and more abusing, trolling and humiliation is on its way directed at him. However, as a face-saving move, he claimed that he would continue his fight for ‘Secular India’ and this has just been a start to a tough journey.
Anuraag Saxena tweeted saying that Prakash Raj couldn’t honour people’s verdict who rejected his brand of politics and embraced PM Modi and the BJP.

Prakash Raj’s tweet also tickled funny bones for many on Twitter. In a hilariously contemptuous manner, one Twitter user creatively portrayed how Raj was mauled in the Lok Sabha elections.

Another Twitter user highlighted the pathological hatred Raj harbours for PM Modi and asked him to get rid of it.
India is secular and will remain secular
Remove your personal animosity with BJP and Modi
He is the Vidhata of New India

One Twitter user responded Prakash Raj with a meme from his move Singham in which he accuses the protagonist of playing foul.

Till exit polls, Prakash Raj was propped up by Lutyens as if he is going to go straight to being one of the top 89 PM candidates of Mahagathbandhan but he has managed to finally poll 2.36% votes and stood a distant 3rd in Bangalore central Constituency after BJP’s PC Mohan and Congress’ Rizwan Ahmed.
