Sources from Bengaluru stated that actor Prakash Raj, who recently announced his decision to contest the coming Lok Sabha election, said he would never join any political party, alleging the parties were not honest. Accordingly Raj said he had decided to contest the election as an Independent from the Bengaluru Central constituency as "He cannot stay in any party for more than three months." "He wants to be the voice of the people".



Furthermore when asked to comment on the Congress' view that his contesting election from the Bengaluru Central constituency would weaken the secular forces, the actor said, "He welcomes secular parties supporting him but if the Congress says that he is contesting election as Independent will take away secular votes then let them support him." Further to a question, Raj said he was not averse to joining the "Mahagathbandhan", the grand alliance of anti-BJP parties against "communal" forces.

Moreover he said he decided to contest the election from Bengaluru Central because he grew up in the area where the electorate was secular in nature. Presently the Lok Sabha seat is held by the BJP's P C Mohan. Earlier Raj claimed that Bollywood filmmakers stopped offering him roles as he has been critical of the Narendra Modi led government. Hence Raj is the latest celebrity to join politics from the South after Rajinikanth and Kamal Hassan.
