Prime Minister Narendra Modi today said that Congress-DMK should be ashamed of themselves as they wanted to ban Jallikattu. Addressing a rally in Madurai, PM Modi said, “UPA was in power in Delhi in 2011 and DMK had big ministries in the Central government. The same UPA government banned Jallikattu. One UPA leader described Jallikattu as a barbaric practice! Is that the word you use for something that has been part of Tamil culture for centuries? In 2016, the Tamil Nadu Congress manifesto called for a ban on Jallikattu. Congress-DMK should be ashamed of themselves!” PM Modi will be crisscrossing between Kerala and Tamil Nadu today to campaign in support of NDA candidates ahead of April 6 polls. After Madurai, he will move to Kerala where he will address a public meeting at RG Indoor Stadium in Pathanamthitta.
