January 2, 2019
South Indian stars Rajinikanth and Kamal Hassan have already entered politics. Now, actor Prakash Raj is all set to step into the world of politics. The actor announced the news on new year's eve on Twitter.
HAPPY NEW YEAR TO EVERYONE… a new beginning ... more responsibility… with UR support I will be contesting in the coming parliament elections as an INDEPENDENT CANDIDATE. Details of the constituency soon. Ab ki baar Janatha ki SARKAR #citizensvoice #justasking in parliament too-Prakash Raj
Raj has always been vocal about issues. He has spoken out against the central government led by Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi. His very close friend Gauri Lankesh was shot and killed by right wing parties. Raj has openly spoken out against that as well.
"Fearless man who took the facist BJP government single handedly salute you sir .we need such people to strengthen opposition in a democracy otherwise government will do dictatorship #PrakashRaj", tweeted Mohammed Abdul Majeed.
