Prakash Raj’s plunge into politics hasn’t been just about himself, but for many other candidates in the fray in the ongoing Lok Sabha polls. The actor-politician earlier backed CPI candidate Kanhaiya Kumar and participated in rallies for over a week for him in Begusarai. The ‘Singham’ star is carrying forward the work from Bihar to Delhi now, where he is campaigning for the Aam Aadmi Party. Raj expressed confidence that the citizens will be voting for Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal's party over issues like education, health and governance and candidates like Atishi Marlena, whom he termed as ‘the future’, thus giving 'more power to citizen’s voice' in the Parliament.
Sharing pictures from the rally, including the road show with Marlena and him addressing a gathering, Raj tweeted, “As I campaign...DELHI “s Citizens assure me that they will VOTE for Education .. Health....Governance...They will VOTE @AamAadmiParty @ArvindKejriwal who DELIVERED.. They will VOTE FOR Candidates like @AtishiAAP who are the FUTURE... more power to #citizensvoice in parliament.”
Marlena also thanked Prakash Raj for his support.
Raj is an Independent candidate from Bengaluru Central. After his vote in the second phase of the polls on April 18, Delhi CM Kejriwal praised him.
Marlena is contesting against Bharatiya Janata Party’s Gautam Gambhir and Congress’ Arvinder Singh Lovely in East Delhi. Delhi goes to polls in the sixth phase of the elections on May 12.
