Clarifying that he has nothing to do with the Congress' campaign, he has asked the party and its leaders Rahul Gandhi and Siddaramaiah to look into it.
"I am appalled to see that my face is being used illegally and without my consent for "40% Sarkara" - an @INCIndia campaign that i have nothing to do with. I will be taking legal action against this. @RahulGandhi @siddaramaiah @INCKarnataka request you to please look into this," Iyer tweeted.
The actor has shared a poster with his image on an account named '40% sarkara' (40 per cent government), which says "The gluttony of 40% Sarkara has robbed over 54,000 youths of a career."

Congress sources said the post has been removed following the tweet and it is being looked into internally as to how it was posted.
