Tamil Nadu Governor Vidyasagar Rao has okayed an Ordinance that lifts the ban on Jallikattu, the ruling AIADMK said, adding that the bull-taming sport will be inaugurated by Chief Minister O Panneerselvam in Madurai at 10am tomorrow.
However, protesters gathered at Chennai’s Marina Beach and other parts of the state for the fifth straight day refused to abandon post, demanding a permanent solution.
The bill to replace the Ordinance will be tabled in the Assembly on January 23 when the session begins, the party tweeted.

The state government is facing flak for enacting an Ordinance after the mass-protests over Jallikattu and the ruling AIADMK Government hopes to pass an Ordinance at the earliest, bring in a permanent solution to resolve the issue but more importantly, the AIADMK Government is exploring legal options to ban PETA.
