The common complaint among the protest leaders was that the Supreme Court had insulted Tamil culture by disallowing the traditional sport observed during the harvest festival of Pongal.
But the public at large was up in arms and launched a statewide agitation seeking overturning the ban. Young students also came out in support of jallikattu; holding banners of "ban PETA" and "we want jallikattu".
The MPs, led by Lok Sabha Deputy Speaker M Thambidurai, requested the Home Minister to intervene to ensure promulgation of an ordinance to end the ban on the conduct of Jallikattu.
Recently, Sivasenapathy resigned from the post of Board Member (Livestock and Farming) in the Tamil Nadu Agricultural University in protest against the ban on Jallikattu.
P Sreenivasa said "attempts to condemn PETA India for working within its lawful right to help animals set India on a risky path toward becoming a land where laws don't matter, putting every citizen's rights and safety at risk".
To answer critics who are saying this is only a temporary fix, Panneerselvam said the ordinance would be replaced with a bill when the Assembly reopens on Monday. "Central Govt conscious of the position", said Rohatgi. Before that we need to enact a legislation notifying the amendment to the Prevention of Cruelty Act (which is in the concurrent list). "It should go forward...", an IT professional told the media at the spot.
The ordinance was approved by Tamil Nadu governor Vidyasagar Rao.
