Actor Prakash Raj, who has shown no reluctance in criticising the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party, self-proclaimed cow vigilantes, and internet trolls, on Saturday asked Prime Minister Narendra Modi "why the Winter Session was not happening."
The National Award-winning actor took a swipe at Modi asking if he was busy somewhere else. Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP president Amit Shah are currently campaigning in Gujarat ahead of the assembly elections.
Furthermore, Prakash also asked if the PM was avoiding the session because it might get "too hot or embarrassing to answer before elections", alluding to mounting criticism over a number of issues, including the implementation of the Goods and Services Tax (GST).
The Opposition had frequently targetted the government over the delay in the winter session, with Congress leader Mallikarjun Kharge accusing the Prime Minister of "destroying" the temple of democracy for Gujarat election.
"Modi is Brahma. He is the creator... only he knows when parliament will be convened," Kharge had said.
