Jallikattu protests continue on day 3

From the rural hamlets to the headland, students have taken over the Jallikattu protests. Even as Panneerselvam is scheduled to meet the prime minister seeking an ordinance on Jallikattu, the protests continue. The chief minister held a meeting with a representative group of protesters appealing for the protest to be withdrawn on Wednesday. While the CM claimed that the students were satisfied with the moves being taken to revoke the ban on Jallikattu, they refused to withdraw the protests. For a third day in a row, thousands have started gathering at the landmark Marina beach in Chennai.
