Ground report : Rahul Gandhi & Udhayanidi Stalin share dias for Jallikattu event in Avaniyapuram

Thousands of people came together to witness the annual event of Jallikattu at Avaniyapuram even as it was splashed with political colours with the presence of the former Congress leader Rahul Gandhi.

Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has begun a tirade against the grand old party, terming Rahul Gandhi's participation as a political move ahead of the assembly elections despite opposing Jallikattu in the past. The event saw over 700 participants, some of them were injured while trying to tame the bull, but the enthusiasm remains high.
