Actor Prakash Raj, who is best known for his roles in Singham, Wanted and Dabangg 2, contested as an independent candidate from the Bangalore Central constituency in Karanataka and the actor has been rejected by the people.
Prakash Raj, who is a vocal critic of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, has got merely 12,517 votes. The actor-turned-politician left the counting center as he learnt that he is trailing behind both, Congress and BJP.
Prakash conceded defeat and wrote, “a SOLID SLAP on my face ..as More ABUSE..TROLL..and HUMILIATION come my way..I WILL STAND MY GROUND ..My RESOLVE to FIGHT for SECULAR INDIA will continue..A TOUGH JOURNEY AHEAD HAS JUST BEGUN ..THANK YOU EVERYONE WHO WERE WITH ME IN THIS JOURNEY. …. JAI HIND.”
Prakash is pitted against Congress’ Rizwan Arshad and sitting BJP MP P.C. Mohan. Mohan and Arshad are presently neck and neck in Bangalore Central.
The citizens of the nation have shown confidence in Prime Minister Modi again, after the 2014 elections, and BJP is all set to win the 2019 General Elections with a thumping majority.
