Karnataka elections: Divya Spandana, Prakash Raj face social media wrath for not voting


Actress-turned politician Divya Spandana, also known as Ramya, and actor Prakash Raj are facing the wrath of social media users for failing to cast votes during the Karnataka elections on Saturday.

Divya Spandana, who heads the social media cell of the Congress, had appealed to the public to cast their votes on Saturday. However, with Divya Spandana herself failing to do so, social media users are reminding her of what she had said. According to reports, she was supposed to vote from Mandya.

Actor Prakash Raj, too, who has been quite vocal against the BJP government was questioned by social media users. “Dear Karnataka..The ones we VOTE.. are the ones who will take policy decisions tomorrow ..which will effect every second of our life .. please think n VOTE wisely ..it’s your responsibility to ensure ..a vibrant..inclusive..futuristic INDIA..keep #justasking yourself too ..,” Prakash Raj had said in a video posted on his Twitter handle. In the #justasking series against the BJP, Prakash Raj had criticised Prime Minister Narendra Modi for not answering his questions on subjects like black money, cash shortage and unemployment.

“The great Congress IT cell head @divyaspandana and great FOS champion @prakashraaj skip from casting their votes. Both who used to blabber nonsense day & night against PM @narendramodi teaching him responsibilities of P/Minister has today forgotten their own duty as a citizen,” read one of the tweets.

However, it has not been confirmed if Prakash Raj has his voting rights in Karnataka.
