The anti Sterlite protests held by the public in Tamil Nadu’s Thoothukudi, where the police shoot out resulted in the killing of thirteen people. The protest was staged by the public who demanded the closure of Vedanta’s Sterlite copper smelting plant.
On this Kollywood Superstar Rajnikanth came up with his controversial remark against it, stated that the protest was staged by anti-social and fringe elements whose aim was to create a ruckus in the society.
Now, a one-woman judicial panel is investigating this case and Rajinikanth has been summoned to conduct an inquiry about his remark in Court on January 19. Earlier, retired judge Aruna Jagadeesan had also summoned Rajinikanth.
But however, the actor has now sought an exemption from appearing because his presence may cause inconvenience to the public and the court. To which he promised to send a written statement.
And when Rajnikanth asked that why he was blaming anti-socials for the protest by reporters, he lost his cool. Loosing his cool Rajni said,“Don’t ask me how I know, I know all of that.”
