Congress chief Rahul Gandhi on Thursday witnessed the favored bull-taming sport Jallikattu at Avaniapuram right here, with DMK Youth Wing Secretary Udhayanidhi Stalin becoming a member of him on the dais. Gandhi, who flew from Delhi to the southern metropolis, was accompanied by senior social gathering leaders KC Venugopal, TNCC chief KS Alagiri and Puducherry Chief Minister V Narayansamy at the Jallikattu venue.
Jallikattu is held coinciding with the Tamil harvest pageant Pongal, which heralds the start of auspicious Tamil month Thai. Although Stalin was current at the venue since morning and was not on the identical dais that Gandhi occupied together with senior Congress leaders on his arrival, he later joined the Lok Sabha MP and the 2 had been seen having discussions, apparently about jallikattu.
DMK and Congress are in alliance and are anticipated to face this yr’s Meeting polls in Tamil Nadu collectively. Alagiri had earlier stated Gandhi would lend his ethical help to farmers protesting towards the brand new cental farm legal guidelines throughout the nation by witnessing the game at Avaniapuram.
Gandhi won’t have interaction in electioneering right this moment, the TNCC chief had stated.
