Was Rajinikanth right, after all?
On May 22, anti-Sterlite protests in Tamil Nadu's Tuticorin turned extremely violent when protestors, without any sense of responsibility, resorted to unpardonable violence. After the law and order situation was threatened, shooting orders were issued. Eleven protestors died.
A few days later, Rajinikanth said that anti-social elements had infiltrated the protests. This comment was deemed insensitive by his critics. Several politicians criticized the actor. It's believed that many punished the film 'Kaala' because they were angry with Rajini.
It turns out that Rajini may have been right! Latest reports say that an ultra-Left organization named Makkal Adhikaram had brainwashed the poor villagers to get violent during the anti-Sterlite protests. This is what the villagers themselves are saying. It seems the Superstar has been vindicated.
