He said that all the information would be brought forward in the shortest possible time and the ministry would reach a conclusion on the matter. Meanwhile, CNN News18 reported that Home Ministry sources revealed that jallikattu would be unbanned soon bringing about a crowdsourced win for the Tamil people.
Earlier today, the central government moved the Supreme Court over jallikattu asking for a delay in the final judgement o which the apex court agreed. The central government remains worried about the law and order situation in the state due to the massive ongoing protests. While the protests have been pleasantly organised and peaceful, one can never see a spark of violence coming. Meanwhile, the Tamil Nadu government is reportedly in talks with the centre to find a solution.
