Prakash Raj has asked for those responsible for demonetisation to issue a public apology. The initiative, launched by PM Narendra Modi last year, did not yield the expected results. In a tweet, Prakash said:

On November 8, 2016, Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced demonetisation of Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 notes which, he said, was aimed at “eradicating black money and terror funding”.
Last week, Prakash — a popular name in the Kannada, Telugu and Tamil film industries — supported actor Kamal Haasan’s views on “Hindu extremists”.
A month ago, Prakash had also condemned the “silence” of Modi on certain sections “celebrating” the murder of journalist Gauri Lankesh in Bengaluru on social media. He had said Modi’s silence was “chilling”.
