Kambala   Ordinance    is   given   assent    by   the  President

The  public  and  the   kambala   organisers  in  Udupi  and   Dakshina  Kannada   districts     carried   on   with   protests.  In   response   to  their  protests    the   Karnataka   assembly  on   February  13     passed    the   bill   to  exempt   kambala   and   bullock  cart  racing   from  the  areas  of  the  Prevention    Of  Cruelty   to  Animals  Act, 1960. Then   it   was  passed   to   the   president   for   his   consent. But   it  was  sent   back   suggesting   modifications. As   the  Karnataka  Legislative  Assembly  was  not    in   the   session   the   state  government   modified   the   bill   and   issued   the   ordinance. Then  it  was  forwarded   to   the   president   again.

    Finally   the   president  gave   his  assent    on   Monday   to   the  promulgation   of   Prevention   Of   Cruelty  To  Animals   Ordinance, 2017 thereby   supporting   the   conduction    of   kambala   and   bullock   cart   racings   in   Karnataka.

  “In pursuance of the proviso to clause (1) of article 213 of the Constitution of India, the President of India hereby approves the promulgation of the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (Karnataka Amendment) Ordinance, 2017 by the Governor of Karnataka,” an order issued by the Ministry of Home Affairs said.
