Hyderabad: Prakash Raj seeks votes for TRS, flayed
Actor-politician Prakash Raj on Monday declared his support for Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) in Tuesday's elections to the GHMC
Hyderabad: Actor-politician Prakash Raj on Monday declared his support for Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) in Tuesday's elections to the GHMC. He appealed to the people of Hyderabad to vote for harmony and not divisive politics. "Dear Hyderabadis your power your right and your conscience to decide.
Do you want peaceful Hyderabad #GHMC Elections. Please vote for harmony, not divisive politics. I stand with #TRS#KCR #KTR," he tweeted. Prakash Raj drew flak from All -India Congress Committee in-charge for Telangana Manickam Tagore for his appeal. He leader said it was surprising to see the actor seeking vote for those "who are killing democracy in Telangana."
Tagore, along with his tweet, posted a video showing an alleged TRS supporter caught with money. "Father and son Chandrasekhar & Rama Rao agent caught with money and pamphlets. Still you want them to win the elections," the Congress leader asked Prakash Raj.
The award-winning actor, who acted in many Telugu films, had unsuccessfully contested for the Lok Sabha from Bangalore Central last year as an independent. A bitter critic of BJP, he had recently called popular Telugu actor and Jana Sena Party chief Pawan Kalyan (PK) a "chameleon" over reviving alliance with BJP and for supporting the saffron party in GHMC polls.
