Demand for lifting ban on Kambala
With an Ordinance promulgated to lift the ban on jallikattu (bull-taming) in Tamil Nadu, the demand for lifting the ban on kambala, traditional buffalo racing, is gaining momentum in coastal Karnataka.
The State government in November last informed the High Court, during the hearing of a PIL petition filed by PETA, that it had withdrawn the permission given to hold the kambala, based on the Supreme Court’s order on jallikattu. The hearing on the petition is scheduled.
