Ready to hold jallikattu at Alanganallur: Officials

Madurai, Jan 21: With the Centre clearing a draft ordinance to allow jallikattu, the Madurai district administration today said it is fully prepared to hold the

bull-taming sport at Alanganallur, near here. 

Alanganallur is famous for conducting jallikattu events. District Collector K Veera Raghava Rao said everything is ready and they are waiting for the green signal from the government.

Officials said with the Collector inspecting the venue, the sport is likely to be held in a day or two. The Centre had last night cleared an ordinance on

jallikattu, paving the way for the Tamil Nadu government to promulgate it in an effort to end the protests that have paralysed the state for the last five days.
