As we all are well aware of today’s known actor’s supremacy of committing a crime and then having guilt-pass from crimes just because they have money and adding to it corruption which is inbuilt in some of our government officials, even if we talk about the case of Rhea Chakraborty or Salman Khan killing an innocent deer it’s all the same.
Same thing happened with the famous actor Dhanush who demanded entry tax exemption of INR 30,30,757 by filing a writ petition for his Rolls Royce Car which he got imported from the United Kingdom itself.
These actors don’t care about the country’s economic policies or growth, just because they are leading our entertainment industry doesn’t give them the automatic right to jeopardize the economic policies of our country.
The court directed the actor, Dhanush to pay the amount within 48 hours.
Later, the actor sought the Court’s leave to withdraw the petition by saying that he already paid half of the amount as per interim order but then Justice SM Subramaniam rejected the actor’s request for withdrawal of writ petition and stated to pay the remaining amount within 48 hours
The court contended by saying that ‘Owners of Luxurious Cars’ must fulfill the constitutional duty of paying tax.
To conclude, We as a middle-class and poor section of society never demand tax exemption whereas these actors and rich sections of society just because they have money and power cannot avail the tax exemption.
