Superstar Rajinikanth could not exercise his franchise at the Nadigar Sangam elections on Sunday, since he received his postal ballot only late on Saturday evening.
Taking to Twitter, he posted: “I am currently shooting in mumbai. I received my postal vote for the Nadigar Sangam elections only at 6:45pm this evening, despite the efforts I took to receive it earlier.”
He added: “I regret that I was unable to cast my vote because of this delay. It is strange and unfortunate. This should not have happened…”
Even as this triggered a controversy, Kamal Haasan, who came to cast the vote at the Nadigar Sangam polls, said that it is unfortunate and sad that Rajini could not vote due to a delay in him receiving his postal vote in Mumbai.
He however dismissed rumours that there is a conspiracy to prevent the superstar from voting as it could be due to a delay by the postal department as well.
