People in Hyderabad, these days, are hitting the streets in support of Jallikattu. Complete strike on Tamil Nadu is being observed on Friday. Interestingly, In the peaceful protest, political parties are being completely barred. The assembling of people started with the social media movement and now thousands of people have come up in support of Jallikattu, which forced the Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu O. Panneerselvam to meet Prime Minister in New Delhi.
PM was apprised with the sentiments of the people of Tamil Nadu. It is believed that Narendra Modi declined to interfere in the matter as it was ruled by The Supreme court of India- countries apex court. However, Pm assured the Chief Minister that whatever steps taken by the Tamil Nadu government in support of the cultural sports will be supported by the Union government.
Janta Dal United (JDU) veteran KC Tyagi replied to the controversial statement and said Owaisi is trying to raise the voice of Minority on the one hand, whereas he also brands Jallikattu with communalism which is wrong. He alleges that Owasis is trying to take political mileage from the Jallikattu.
Madras High court had earlier banned Jallikattu, which was overturned by the Tamil Nadu Government with the bill passed in the assembly. The legislature allowed the cultural sports to be played with certain regulation. However, this brief respite could not last for long as NGOs, who assume it as a cruelty on Bulls had approached The Supreme Court of India. The apex court nod with the concerns of NGO’s and again imposed a complete ban on the sports.
