Prakash Raj to govt on demonetization: Would you mind saying sorry for biggest blunder?

Actor Prakash Raj has once again lashed out at the central government. This time it is for the demonetization move implemented last year, which killed people and left many jobless. His comments came on the day Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his supporters celebrated one year of demonetization.
Raj wrote a post on Twitter titled: 'To whomsoever it may concern'. He wrote, “While the rich found ways to convert their black money into shiny new notes, this disruptive impact made millions suffer helplessly and the unorganised sector workers went for spin. Would you mind saying sorry for the biggest blunder of our time?”
As expected, his comments received criticism from fans of Modi on Twitter. But at the same time, others applauded him too.
Raj has been vocal against the government in recent times. Last week, he came down heavily on right wing groups for crimes like lynching and other harassment.
He had published a similar note on Twitter saying, “If abusing and manhandling young couples on the streets of my country in the name of morality is not terrorizing… If taking law into hands and lynching people on slightest of doubt of cow slaughter is not terrorizing… If trolling with abuse, threat… to silence even a slightest voice of dissent is not terrorizing… then what is terrorizing… #justasking
Few weeks ago, the actor had criticized Modi for his silence on crimes such as the brutal murder of journalist Gauri Lankesh.
