Prakash Raj to Contest as Independent in 2019 Polls

After actors Pawan Kalyan, Rajinikanth and Kamal Haasan, southern star Prakash Raj has decided to take the political plunge.

In a tweet ringing in the New Year, Raj announced that he would be contesting the upcoming 2019 elections as an independent candidate.

The actor’s tweet read: “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.”

Raj has been vocal about his reservations with the Narendra Modi government, especially since his close friend and Kannada journalist Gauri Lankesh was murdered allegedly by Right-wing members.

The announcement on Twitter was received positively, with most comments congratulating the actor and wishing him luck in his political career. Within an hour of putting out the tweet, it received over 1,000 likes.
