MANGALURU: Kambala will not be held even in Dakshina Kannada. The department of Animal Husbandry here has sent a letter to the Dakshina Kannada district administration to give directions to Kambala organizers not to go ahead with their programmes as it would violate the Supreme Court order.
On Tuesday Deputy Commissioner AB Ibrahim had said the scheduled Seventh Nethravati - Phalguni Kambala at Dr Shivarama Karantha Pilikula Nisargadhama would be held on December 29.
He had said: As of now, there is no hindrance or impediment regarding the conduct of kambala. Unless there is a ban order issued by the Government of Karnataka, I don't think that there will be a problem. The programme will go on.''
The deputy Director, Animal Husbandry department had received circular from the department of law and Parliamentary Affairs on November 14 stating it violated provisions of PCA Act. Those who violate the order would be dealt according as per the provisions of the Act, the letter from M R Somashekarappa, personal assistant to the law minister.
Ibrahim said: I have not seen the letter. If it has to be banned the Government should issue an order to this effect.
Meanwhile, the Animal Welfare Board of India (AWBI), Chennai wrote a letter to DC on Wednesday directed Ibrahim to issue directions to all enforcement authorities to take action against those to violate Para 77 of the SC order and also Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act, 1960. AWBI secretary in charge S Vinod Kumar said: Kambala held anywhere in the state or outside is banned as per SC order.
He further noted: Irrespective of the fact that Kambala Academy has stated to have said the sport is being organised scientifically following guidelines laid down in PCA Act.
