Speaking at an interaction meeting   here on January 24, Tuesday,  Nalin said Kambala with a history of nearly 1000 years has a close connection with the culture  and  tradition of the district.

He reiterated no cruelty was inflicted on buffaloes during Kambala and added that there was much difference between Jallikattu and Kambala. He also said people have to participate in the protest in large numbers if they have to show their strength in support of Kambala. It is only that that the protest would help in realising the objective, he said.

Nalin also welcomed the statement of Chief Minister Siddaramaiah  in support of  Kambala.

Pavana Chandra Shetty, advocate who also spoke, said  though  the  Kambala was permitted  with conditions laid down by the Department of Animal Husbandry in December 2015, PETA     moved the court seeking a ban by comparing Kambala to Jallikattu. He also exuded confidence that the ban on Kambala would be lifted.

Sri  Balikodi Shashikanth Swamiji who too was present, said Kambala buffaloes were  given special treatment and that there was no cruelty or torture on the animals.

Theatre personalities  Vijaykumar Kodialbail, Naveen D Padil, District Kannada Sahitya Parishat President Pradeep Kumar Kalkura,  Buntara Sangha President Ajith Kumar Rai, Kambala Committee President Ashok Kumar Rai and others were present.
