Prakash Raj to contest 2019 elections as an Independent candidate
02 January, 2019
Critically-acclaimed actor Prakash Raj on Tuesday announced that he will contest in the upcoming Parliament elections as an independent candidate. The announcement was made by the actor on New Year day but he is yet to decide on a constituency from where he would fight.

Taking to Twitter, Prakash Raj wrote, "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"

Prakash Raj has been open in his political views and is known for his anti-BJP stance. In November, he had posted a tweet referring to Modi, "Dear Supreme Leader... before giving Gyan on foul language to other parties... will you and your party begin Swachh Bharat first from your own motor mouths?"

He had earlier claimed that Bollywood stopped offering him roles as he has been critical of the Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led government at the Centre.

The 2019 general elections will be held in April or May to constitute the 17th Lok Sabha.
