The O Panneerselvam-led AIADMK government is all set to move the bill to amend the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act, with the main opposition DMK and its allies Congress and IUML, expected to lend their support.

The bill would replace the ordinance, promulgated yesterday for conducting the bull taming sport after a three-year-long ban.

Though it has a window of six months to replace the ordinance, the government has made it clear that the bill would be moved during this session itself.

The protesters have dubbed the ordinance as a temporary measure and sought a ‘permanent solution’ for the conduct of jallikattu.
