Many of the protesters have blamed both the Tamil Nadu and Central governments for the present tension. The meeting of the honourable Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Mr. O. Panneerselvam with the honourable Prime Minister Mr. Narendra Modi has not been successful in this regard. The Prime Minister has said he appreciated the cultural significance of Jallikattu for the people of Tamil Nadu, but indicated that the Centre was unable to promulgate an ordinance.
The protesters say that they will continue their protests till their demand is met and Jallikattu is allowed by removing the ban by an ordinance. They hold the governments at the Centre and in the Tamil Nadu state responsible for the present state of affairs in Tamil Nadu.
