Prime Minister Narendra Modi has his fair share of critics, who are always on look out for opportunities to lambaste and blame the Prime Minister. While criticizing an institutional administrator only makes a democracy stronger, PM Modi’s critiques always seem to go off track and rake up unnecessary controversies.
PM Modi has faced a lot of criticism off late for choosing to remain silent on issues related to communism and murder of journalist Gauri lankesh.
On Sunday, actor Prakash Raj also joined the list of PM Modi’s criticizers and expressed his resentment over the matter of journalist Gauri Lankesh’s murder. He was addressing the crowd at the inauguration of Left-oriented Democratic Youth Federation of India’s 11th state meet and he said,
“Those who killed Gauri may or may not be traced but that apart, there is a huge crowd out there enjoying and celebrating on social media. We all know who they are, what their ideology is. Some of those celebrating this ghastly episode are being followed by none other than Mr Modi himself. This is what worries me, where is our country is headed to?”
He even said that Prime Minister Modi was a bigger actor than him and his silence over his followers’ rejoicing the murder of Gauri Lankesh is like an “actor trying to please his followers”.

He further added that he should return his 5 national awards as he feels that PM Modi can do better acting than him and hence, he should be given those awards.
“I am worried about the PM’s silence. Is he trying to endorse cruelty espoused by some of his followers,” he added further.
Prakash Raj’s outburst against PM Modi didn’t go down well with people who blamed him for playing a publicity stunt and blasted him on twitter.
