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.
In his maiden address to the Assembly on Monday Rao said, “This mass movement has paved the way for lifting the ban on Jallikattu.”
Following promulgation of ordinance on bull-taming sport, Jallikattu was played in several parts of the state.
“As a permanent measure to allow the conduct of Jallikattu, a bill to replace the ordinance will be placed before this august House immediately,” the governor said, as the DMK staged a walkout.
Soon after Rao began his address, DMK President MK Stalin walked out of the house along with other party members.
