Addressing the protestors, Yogish Shetty Jeppu, Founder President of the Vedike  said Kambala has been an  inseparable part of culture of Tulunadu and that the ban on Kambala has   deeply pained the people of the land. Kambala and farmers  have a close bonding , he said adding the fate of the over 25 Kambala events  in the district are hanging in fire due to the stay.

He said the argument that buffaloes   are tortured during Kambla is unacceptable. "There is pain in all games. There have been occasions when cricketers have lost lives during play. Can or will cricket be  banned for this reason?" he questioned.

"If hitting buffaloes  is violence, then what can be said about the  torture meted out to camels, horses and elephants while training ?" he further asked.

Stating that Tamil Nadu people have shown their determination by  getting permission to conduct Jallikattu sport, he urged all elected representatives of the state to raise the issue in the Assembly as well as Parliament and ensure that the ban on Kambala is lifted.
