- As far as I understand there is a stay by the Karnataka High Court on the Kambala event because of Jallikattu decision by the Supreme Court

- GOI always respects the local traditions of the states be it in TN or be it Karnataka

- I would appreciate if the Honorable CM takes the same initiative on behalf of the Govt to get the stay vacated by the Karnataka High Court and also take similar initiative as the Tamil Nadu Govt has taken

- We are fully cooperative and I wish to state very clearly that the primary initiative needs to be taken by the Karnataka Govt

- The central Government and state government are having a say, so we want to bring a law of our own and we are thinking about it, since the Assembly is meeting on 6 February. By that time we will positively decide to bring a law in the Assembly.

- Central Govt has to support because this comes under concurrent list, and state has not taken any steps because of active involvement of animal supporters, we are trying to manage

- Now the court has given a stay order and in the light of how GOI came to the rescue of TN, we are bound to get justice
