Iyer tweeted, “My picture is being used illegally and without my permission for the Congress campaign “40 percent government”. I have nothing to do with this. I will take legal action against it. Rahul Gandhi and Siddaramaiah and Karnataka Congress should take cognizance of this.”
Akhil shared Congress poster
The actor shared a poster of the Congress party which has his picture on it and it reads “Careers of 54,000 youth ruined due to greed of 40 per cent of the government”. This poster is part of the Congress campaign which is being run against the Bharatiya Janata Party and Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai.

Congress sources said the post has been taken down after the actor’s tweet and an internal inquiry is being conducted.
