After journalist Ravish Kumar, it was southern actor Prakash Raj who took to criticizing Prime Minister Narendra Modi for his silence over the murder of senior Kannada editor and activist Gauri Lankesh. He also termed it disappointing that Modi was following those who were celebrating Lankesh’s murder on social media.”Gauri’s killers have not been caught yet. But what is more disappointing is people celebrating her murder over social media spreading hatred,” Raj said on Sunday speaking at the 11th state meet of Democratic Youth Federation of India (DYFI) held in Bengaluru.  “Some of these people who celebrated her (Gauri’s) murder are followed by our Prime Minister (Narendra Modi) on Twitter. We have a PM who shuts his eyes to this,” he said.Immediately hitting out at Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, Raj said, “When you look at the kind of statements he (Adityanath) makes, you don’t understand whether he’s a Chief Minister or a priest.””He (Adityanath) is a better actor than me. I think I must give out all my five national awards to him,” he said on a sarcastic note.

Clarifying Raj’s statement, Muneer Katipalla, the state president of DYFI said: “It was only a satirical comment that Prakash Raj made referring to how Adityanath was trying to act like a Chief Minister.” “Some of these people who celebrated her (Gauri’s) murder are followed by our Prime Minister (Narendra Modi) on Twitter.
