The Prime Minister Narendra Modi said, "the government is making all efforts to fulfil the cultural aspirations of Tamil Nadu". Meanwhile Centre cleared an ordinance drafted by the state government. Modi tweeted, “(The) Central government is fully committed to the progress of Tamil Nadu and will always work to ensure the state scales new avenues of progress.” It also mentioned that “We are very proud of the rich culture of Tamil Nadu. All efforts are being made to fulfil the cultural aspirations of Tamil people.”Legal experts, however, say the fresh ordinance – likely to be promulgated on Saturday or Sunday – too may not pass legal scrutiny.
Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu, O Pannerselvam announced that “Tomorrow or the day after tomorrow, the joyous news will come. For sure, Jallikattu will be held in Tamil Nadu.” He went Delhi to meet Modi. On banning this cultural sport, thousands of protestants congregated on Marina beach. Many Tamilians from abroad also supported Jaliikattu by holding rallies in Sri Lanka, Britain and Australia.
