TN Assembly passes bill replacing ordinance to revive Jallikattu


The Tamil Nadu Assembly passed a Bill unanimously replacing an ordinance to revive Jallikattu in a special sitting this evening, after Governor Vidyasagar Rao delivered the customary address in the morning.

Chief Minister O. Panneerselvam tabled the Bill. Opposition DMK floor leader MK Stalin, Congress leader Ramasamy and many others spoke in support of the Bill before its passage unanimously.

Protesters withdrew their demonstrations at the Chennai Marina Beach on the seventh day of their demonstrations this afternoon following efforts by the police and many pro-Jallikattu activists who persuaded the youth to disperse as their goal has been attained by way of removing the hurdles to hold the sport. However, the police prevented fresh flow of people into the Beach by barricading all the approach roads in the morning.

Miscreants set vehicles parked near a police station in Triplicane near the beach. In most places in Chennai, traffic came to a standstill since this afternoon due to students blocking roads against what they call police excesses in various parts of the state. Public transport services were affected, leading to many passengers getting stranded.

Clashes erupted between the police and protesters at Alanganallur in Madurai district in which many people including policemen got injured. In Coimbatore, the agitators were evicted from the VOC Grounds that has been the hub of youth demonstrations for the past week.

Over the Jallikattu issue, the opposition parties in the Tamil Nadu Assembly today staged a walk out, boycotting Governor's address. When Governor Vidyasagar Rao began to deliver his maiden address in the House this morning, principal Opposition Leader and DMK working president MK Stalin led his party members out of the House after trying to raise the issue. He was followed by the Congress and the Indian Union Muslim League members who also left the House.

Mr Stalin met Governor in the evening and stressed for a judicial inquiry into the violent incidents throughout the state.

Meanwhile, Union Minister and Chairperson of the NGO “People for Animals” Maneka Sanjay Gandhi has strongly refuted reports that her organization has gone on an appeal against the state-specific pro-Jallikattu ordinance of Tamil Nadu.

In a statement released in Delhi, she has termed such reports as false and mischievous and an attempt to misguide the people.

Our correspondent reports that at a time when the agitations were supposed to have ended peacefully, as the Bill on Jallikattu has been passed in the Legislative Assembly, violent incidents have erupted following a stand off between the agitators and the police.

However, the protests were abandoned peacefully in places like Tirunelveli, Cuddalore and Salem. With today's voilence, the issue has got a new twist to the whole issue.
