Social media went gaga over the news of Russian President Vladimir Putin visiting Tamil Nadu to watch Jallikattu. It was claimed that President Putin is set to visit India next year to watch the famous Jallikattu in Tamil Nadu along with Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Various news outlets affirmed this news on their official websites.
As the news started to trend, the Gujarat Press Information Commission on its official Twitter page denied such claims.
In addition, the ANI news agency also reported that the news of Putin’s visit to Tamil Nadu is false.
Therefore, it is certain that there are no verified reports of Putin visiting India to watch Jallikattu along with Modi.
