Demonetisation impact? No salary paid to drivers of Rajinikanth family-run school

Drivers working in an institution run by Tamil actor Rajinikanth’s family have raised a banner of revolt alleging non-payment of salaries.

As many as 28 drivers went on strike on Monday in Velachery alleging that they have been getting salaries only during the last week of the month for the past six months.

“Our salaries have been getting delayed for the past six months and ever since the demonetisation announcement came, we have not got our salaries. How do we pay our rent and meet daily expenses,” K. Murali Krishna, a driver who protested against the management, asked.

The management is not answering phone calls made to them, the drivers alleged.

The drivers said the management was making excuses like continued bank holidays, the death of Jayalalithaa and cyclone Vardah.

The school is managed by Rajinikanth’s wife Latha.
