The Tamil Nadu government has issued a new set of stringent guidelines, including CCTV surveillance and medical examination of bulls, to ensure a safe conduct of Jallikattu. 
As per a circular sent to the district administrations and organisers of the bull-taming sport, the names of participants and bulls should be registered and a team of officials should monitor the events. The bulls should be rested at least for 20 minutes before being released into the sporting arena, and they will be examined by the veterinarians.The bulls should be given 60 square feet of space, and the owner of the animal should stand by it to give it a sense of security. Jallikattu was held in most parts of the state yesterday



following the promulgation of Centre's ordinance to resume the sport. Two people were killed and many others injured.
The State Assembly will meet in Chennai today and a Bill to replace the ordinance is expected to be passed. This is the first session of the Assembly after the demise of former Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa. Meanwhile, pro-Jallikattu protesters are continuing their agitations for the seventh day today at Chennai's Marina Beach and several other locations. They are urging a permanent solution to the issue, saying the ordinance route is an ad hoc measure. However, reports from a few other locations say that protesters have dispersed expressing satisfaction over the resumption of the sport.
