MK Stalin begins fast seeking permanent solution on jallikattu

DMK working president MK Stalin began a fast in Chennai on Saturday demanding permanent removal of the ban on jallikattu. DMK MLAs, MPs and party workers from various districts of Tamil Nadu joined him in the strike.

The party said they wanted a permanent measure which will ensure conducting of jallikattu without any hindrances, a report in The Hindu said.

On Friday, Stalin welcomed Chief Minister O Panneerselvam’s announcement that the state government would issue an ordinance to amend the Prevention of Cruelty Act to allow jallikattu, but insisted that bulls should be permanently removed from ‘performing animals’ category by the Centre, so that the sport is held in the state annually.

He also welcomed the protesters’ assertion that their agitation would continue till jallikattu was held.
