With days drawing close to the scheduled event of jallikattu at Palamedu, people from this community had not been provided with opportunity to join the organising committee. But, the committee collected donations from people of this community. Further, the petitioner stated that some of them from the community had been raising 10 bulls in parts of Palamedu and taking part in jallikattu for several years now. While crores of money had been collected as donations to offer prizes to those who excelled in the sport, the committee has not properly maintained accounts. Despite making representations several times for the inclusion of people from the Adi Dravida community in the jallikattu organising committee, no action had been taken and their demands remain ignored.
