Suchithra, popularly known as Mirchi Suchi has been reacting to the political issues for past few months. A video she made to create awareness on Jayaraj and Fenix issue gained global attention, as a result of which it became a subject to debate in national level. After that, she also raised voice against a number of injustice that are taking place in the society. Now, the radio jockey turned playback singer, came up with a tweet criticizing Superstar Rajinikanth for the furore he created before paying property tax for his Raghavendra Marriage hall located in Kodambakkam.
Actor and upcoming politician Rajinikanth filed a writ petition in the Madras high court challenging the demand of the property tax to the tune of Rs. 6. 50 lakh for his Raghavendra Marriage hall located at Kodambakkam. In the case filed by Rajinikanth, it has been said that he is regularly paying tax for the marriage hall through his counsel Vijayan Subramanian. The tax was last paid on 14th of February.
Due to the lockdown implementation by the central and state government, Rajinikanth haven’t rented his marriage hall to anyone since March 24. After seeing the invoice sent by the corporation demanding Rs.6.50 lakh as property tax for the months April through September, of September 10th, the actor stated that he had cancelled bookings for his marriage hall after March 24 and even refunded the advance money in accordance with the instruction of the government.
Rajinikanth reportedly pointed out that section 105 of the Chennai city Municipal corporation Act of 1919 provides for remission of tax if the premises remained vacant for over 30 days and insisted on according the benefit to him.
However, The court warned of imposing cost on the actor rushing the court without giving adequate time for the authorities to dispose of his representation. While addressing the case, Justice Anitha Sampath said “Do you think that the court has no better things to do except directing the corporation authorities to dispose of your representation ?”
“You made the representation to the Chennai corporation on September 23 and rushed to the court within a week. Why do you want to rush to the court instead of approaching the authorities ” the court asked. When the court was about to dismiss the petition with cost, the counsel for Rajinikanth pleaded the court to permit him to withdraw the petition.
“File a memo for withdrawal before the end of today’s business hours. The court will record your memo and dismiss the plea” the court said. A day later, after paying the tax, Rajinikanth came up with a tweet writing that he could have avoided the mistake by approaching corporation instead of court.

Now, Suchi, in her tweet, referred how actor Prasanna (Read : Prasanna Accused Tamilnadu Electricity Board !!) paid the huge amount of electricity bill amidst lockdown situation despite of the less usage and questioned why Rajinikanth couldn’t pay the amount like him.
“Does the lamentation really needed ?? That too in public ? Didn’t Actor Prasanna pay up a similar EB bill knowing he was WRONGLY billed? When your own cause becomes greater than a public cause and you can’t tell the difference, you shouldn’t be a politician” she wrote in her tweet.
