Jallikattu issue: Pvt member bill seeks exemption for bulls

 A private member’s bill seeking to exempt bulls from protected list of animals was taken up in the Rajya Sabha on Friday, but it was withdrawn following the promise by the government to look into the issue.

DMK member Tiruchi Siva, while moving the private member’s resolutions, said amendments to the Prevention of Cruelty Act, 1960, would avoid repeat of agitations which were witnessed in Tamil Nadu when Jallikattu was banned.

“Bull is an integral part of the national cultural and tradition and it is being used for agricultural purposes and other activities in rural parts of the country,” Siva said, adding that NGO PeTA wanted to harm the country’s tradition.
