Rahul Gandhi watches jallikattu, speaks on preserving Tamil culture

Traditional bull-taming sport Jallikattu began in Tamil Nadu on Thursday with certain Covid-19 restrictions.

More than 200 bulls participated in the competition at Avaniyapuram in Madurai.

Last year in December, the Tamil Nadu government granted permission to hold Jallikattu with restrictions.

As per the directive, the number of players cannot be more than 150 at an event and Covid-19 negative certificates have been made mandatory for players.

The number of spectators has also been restricted to 50% of the gathering.

Congress leader Rahul Gandhi visited Madurai and witnessed jallikattu.
