At an interactive meet with media persons here on March 14, Wednesday Prakash Rai said he was not in favour of entering electoral politics and neither was he  in favour of any political party. "I will speak against the party which endangers the country," he said.  He further added that the communal mindset of the BJP has attacked him and dubbed  communal politics as a  "bigger cancer  than corruption."

He also did not forget to  highlight the role of media and added that he was raising his voice as a citizen of this nation. He also regretted that at times his remarks have been twisted and added that he had every right to question.   Everyone has the right to question in the true spirit of democracy, he said. "Attempts are made to silence  my voice through criticism and pressure tactics," Rai said.

He said he felt  greatly disturbed when BJP supported  Union Minister Ananth Kumar who spoke against the Constitution.

Regarding the court verdict on pub attack case, Prakash Rai   said he wondered  how the accused could be acquitted when there was so much evidence.

On some reports that he faced threats in Mangaluru, Prakash Rai said  four men had questioned his car driver as to where he(Rai) was residing. However they   left the spot on seeing the police, said  the actor.
