Rajini participates in fast protesting service tax upon cine professionals

The fast by Tamil cine professionals protesting the levying of service tax started this morning. 

The Central Government has levied 12.36 percent of service tax upon people from all quarters of cinema including stars and other artistes.

Cine professionals have conveyed that those who are into profession in silver screen and small screen would be badly hit out of the move by Central Government. 

Tamil cine professionals conducted fast today demanding that the service tax be cancelled. 

The fast began this morning at 9 in front of Valluvar Kottam, Chennai. 

Within few minutes of the commencement of fast, Rajinikanth arrived.  As news of Rajini’s presence leaked out, thousands thronged the place. 

Rajini was in the fast for about 2 hours.  Then, Rajini made an adress:-

‘Central Government has taken up measures to wipe out black money.  As taxes are hiked, the income to government dwindles.  The government knows that if service tax is levied, black money would increase.  The government could implement law to punish those who do not pay tax.  So, the Central Government should concede my demand and cancel service tax.’

Celebrities as Vijay, Sarathkumar and Radharavi were present in the fast.  Both Kamal Haasan and Ajith Kumar did not turn up for the fast.  Lead actresses did not appear.  Some actresses who had switched over from cinema to small screen participated in the fast.
