Even as the centre on Friday cleared the ordinance on jallikattu, proposed by the Tamil Nadu government, the pro-jallikattu protest on Chennai’s Marina beach continued on the fifth day of the protest.
 
M Damodaran, a protester, says, “The protest will continue till we are assured that jallikattu is back. Government should know the power of such a movement. We are unhappy with the government over several issues. People feel they are being cheated and are being taken for granted. People are unhappy with the change of guard in AIADMK. Everyone is expressing anger in their own ways.” 
 
“Jallikattu should not become history and we will bring it back. We cannot keep begging the centre for everything,” says Manju, another protestor. 
 
Lavanya, an engineering student participated in the protest with her mother. “My mother had office today but she took leave and has come with me to raise voice in order to safeguard our culture,” says Lavanya. Young students also came out in support of jallikattu; holding banners of ‘ban PETA’ and ‘we want jallikattu’.
