BJP is like cancer; Congress & JD(S) like cold, cough : Prakash Raj

 Actor Prakash Raj, who has been voicing out his opinion strongly against Narendra Modi-led BJP, has described BJP as "Cancer". However, Prakash Raj hasn't completely supported the ruling Congress (in Karnataka) or opposition JD(S). He described the Congress, JD(S) as "cold and cough".

While Prakash Raj has been campaigning against BJP and vehemently criticising Modi, media had asked him whether "everything" is right with the Congress and JD(S)? He responded saying "BJP is like cancer, while Congress and JD(S) are like cold and cough. We will be stupid to treat cough and cold first, instead of cancer."

Talking about his recent meeting with JD(S) supremo and former Prime Minister Deve Gowda and Telangana Chief Minister KCR, Prakash Raj said he supported the idea of regional parties gaining power in the 2019 Lok Sabha polls. "There were rumours that the JD(S) will collaborate with the BJP post-polls. I wanted to ask Deve Gowda and Kumaraswamy directly. They have both assured me that they won't join hands with the BJP," he said. "My campaign is only against the BJP; let the people decide whom to vote, based on their track record," added Prakash Raj.

Responding to media whether he would join politics, Prakash Raj clarified that he was not here to join politics.
