He was speaking at Dr B R Ambedkar Jayanthi. Prakash Rai recalled the incident which took place in Kalaburagi on Thursday night in which his car was surrounded by a few people who were shouting slogans against him. He asked what he had done to attract such protests.

“Is it wrong to question why this government is protecting offenders. Though they came to power just a few years ago, they have spread so much atrocity and are trying to silence the people who questions them... So-called two great leaders are visiting the state to see the impact of their lies on the people of Karnataka and to what extent they can fool the people of Karnataka,” he said.
