Bill to legalise Jallikattu to be tabled in Tamil Nadu Assembly today

Tamil Nadu Governer C. Vidyasagar Rao has approved the ordinance seeking conduct of the game on Saturday.

Amid the ongoing statewide protest in support of the bull-taming sport Jallikattu, the bill replacing the ordinance passed by the Governer on January 21, will be tabled in the Tamil Nadu state assembly on January 23.

On January 21, a big victory came up for the protesters raising their voices in favour of conducting Jallikattu after Tamil Nadu Governer C. Vidyasagar Rao has approved the ordinance seeking conduct of the game.

After TN Governor’s clearance to the ordinance, CM Panneerselvam thanked Prime Minister Narendra Modi for his kind support to save an integral part of Tamil tradition.

Earlier this day, a new clash between police nad public broke down as the Tamil Nadu police tried to move the protesters forcefully out of the Marin Beach and occupy the area stating that “their purpose has been fully achieved” since the state government promulgated an ordinance on January 21.

On the other hand, the protestors demanded more time to evacuate the area. Soon enough the police moved in and started removing the protesters from the beach forcefully which resulted in a heated clash. Meanwhile, all the routes to Marina Beach were blocked and police put barricades to prevent people from gathering over there.

It has been one week that thousands of people have been staging their protest seeking lift of the ban imposed on the bull-taming-sport Jallikattu.
