Tamil Nadu Governor Ch Vidyasagar on Monday said that a bill to replace the ordinance would be placed by the state government in Tamil Nadu Assembly immediately.

“The unprecedented and spontaneous outpouring of emotion and sentiment in a completely orderly and peaceful manner by lakhs of youth, supported by common people across the state, has received the solidarity of Tamil people across the globe to conduct Jallikattu and preserve Tamil cultural heritage,” he said, even as the opposition DMK staged a walkout.
