subramanian Swamy I am happy that the Tamil Nadu Government has taken action and also warned those with the bulls not to keep them out for the function,” he added.

Voicing its support over the ban on Jallikattu, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Subramanian Swamy on Saturday said the government has to crackdown on those who go against the Constitution of India.  “The remote villages are informally letting bulls loose. That’s not Jallikattu. The Tamil Nadu Government has prevented the real functions in Madurai, Cuddalore and in other places. That’s very good because while I support Jallikattu and while I have argued in the Supreme Court on it giving a 23-page written submission also, but I don’t like these anti-national elements in Tamil Nadu,” Swamy told ANI.

He further said that one has to wait as long as the Supreme Court does not give a judgement on Jallikattu.   “These LTT, Naxalite and drug peddlers …all these people have ganged up together to somehow bring the Indian Constitution into dispute. This will not be tolerated.

I am happy that the Tamil Nadu Government has taken action and also warned those with the bulls not to keep them out for the function,” he added.  The police lathicharged the people protesting against the ban on Jallikattu in Avanivapuram in Madurai on Saturday.

As many as thirty people have been detained.  Heavy police force has been deployed since Friday in Avaniapuram, Palamedu and Alanganallur, locations famous for Jallikattu in Madurai District, as various organisations vowed to violate the ban and organise the bull taming sport.

Jallikattu was organised yesterday in Madurai as protests continued for the fourth day in Tamil Nadu with principal opposition DMK too hitting the streets on Pongal, seeking permission for conducting the bull taming sport.  A day after Supreme Court said it could not give its verdict on Jallikattu before Pongal, DMK pressed the Centre to promulgate an ordinance to allow the sport.

DMK chief M.K. Stalin also led a protest in Chennai and sought promulgation of an ordinance.  The apex court had outlawed Jallikattu in 2014 and a review petition of Tamil Nadu was also dismissed last December.   The judgement on a matter related to the Centre’s notification from November 2016 to exempt Jallikattu from the ban has been reserved by the apex court.

Jallikattu is traditionally held along with Pongal festivities and there has been a growing chorus in support of lifting the ban on the sport in the state in the past four days.

    Subramanium Samuya was right to do everything under consution. Much damage had done to India under hi era.. Now correction is necessary under Modi era.Consider India is a friend for world peace but with new order under Modi. His vision is opposite of hism. He created Gujarat riot but he made Gujarat free from communal hatred and Gujarat a model of India. It is universal true. Destruction is necessary before construction. Atom Bomb brought destruction but brought Nuclear Reactor, computer, and now space Rocket, French Revolution brought destruction but brought democracy and so on. Now Modi is PM, he would make India a model of universe for real peace. hi was not a man of peace but a man of violence under disguise. He created stan after killing of millions. His ideals are no longer valid in India, his Non-Violence Movement created stan in 1947 and in 1962 his follow up slogan of Non-Violence Hindu-China Bhai –Bhai created Chinese aggression in 1962. Why did hi fail in uniting Hindus and Muslims? hi was a clever man ever born in India. He has no vision for United India; he has only one vision to make Nehru the PM. To achieve it he requires to shift the power from Calcutta to Delhi, he requires destroying the leaders of Bengal by Non-Violence only with Hindus creating Hindu-Muslim hatred and later rioting, because it is only the leaders of Bengal who could challenge Nehru to occupy the chair of power at Delhi. He had done the greatest harm to Punjab and Bengal by creating stan and making Muslims the enemy of Hindus. If he was man of humanity, why did he fail to satisfy Jinnah? His Charka and FAKIR Dress was just to befool the Hindus. Haryana Minister is justified in his thinking to remove the picture of hi from Indian Rupee.
