Jallikattu: SC reserves verdict for a week

The Supreme Court on Thursday agreed not to pass judgement for a week on the Jallikattu issue while taking into account the Centre’s submission that they were in talks with Tamil Nadu to find a way out in the matter.

Attorney General Mukul Rohatgi mentioned the matter before a bench comprising Justices Dipak Misra and R Banumati that people of Tamil Nadu are “passionate” about Jallikattu and the Central government and the state are trying to resolve the issue.

“The Centre and the state are in talks to find a way out in the matter and our request is that the court should not deliver the judgement for at least a week,” Rohatgi told the bench.

Protest in Mysuru

Tamil Employees residing in Mysuru, staged a protest in-front of DC’s office against the Supreme court verdict on ban of Jallikattu. Speaking on the occasion Vice President of Tamil Sangham, Shantha Murthy said, “Jallikattu is not just a sport, it’s the tradition and culture of a state. Supreme Court’s verdict on Jallikattu is against the tradition of a state. The Supreme Court must relook in to this and deliver a judgement in favour of Tamil Nadu.”
