Narendra Modi silence on his ‘followers’ rejoicing the murder of Gauri Lankesh, was similar to an ‘actor trying to gratify his followers’.
Bengaluru: It was the crack of a silver screen star to take on Prime Minister Narendra Modi with multi-lingual hero, Prakash Raj, who has outshined in villain roles, commenting on Sunday that the Narendra Modi silence on his ‘followers’ rejoicing the murder of famous journalist Gauri Lankesh, was similar to an “actor trying to gratify his followers”.
Talking after initiating the 11th state meet of the Left-leaning Democratic Youth Federation of India now, he stated, “Those who murdered Gauri might or might not be found but that apart, there is a giant crowd out there relishing and rejoicing on social media. We all know who they are, what their philosophy is. Some of those rejoicing this distressing episode are being trailed by none other than Mr. Modi himself. This is what qualms me, where is our nation is led to?”
He stated that Mr. Modi by keeping silent on his followers’ actions was only showing a point that “he is trying to become a great actor than me”.
“I am worried about the PM’s quietness. Is he trying to ratify cruelty espoused by some of his cohorts,” he probed angrily and added that he does not mind returning his five national movie awards to Mr. Modi if he endures remaining silent on such brutality.
