The stage is set for the conduct of the city’s first ever bull taming sport of Jallikkattu tomorrow. A total of 750 bulls and 500 tamers have been registered so far for participating in the event, district collector TN Hariharan, who inspected the 25 acre of the arena said. The event, being jointly organised by the city Corporation and Omkar Foundation, will be flagged off by Municipal Administration Minister S P Velumani. Jallikattu remained banned following a Supreme Court order in May 2014 before the state government last year brought an ordinance to facilitate its conduct at the height of a massive protest held at Marina Beach in Chennai and several places across the state.

Accordingly, jallikattu was held in some places during the third week of January and in the first week of February elsewhere, including Palamedu, last year. The sport synonymous with Pongal festivities was held in Madurai and Sivaganga districts in the second week of this month.
