"For the world famed Alanganallur jallikattu, Chief Minister K Palaniswami will give away a Renault car as prize for the best bull tamer," Revenue Minister R B Udhayakumar told reporters in Madurai.
The best bull rearer will take home a Hyundai car, to be given by Deputy Chief Minister O Panneerselvam.
The prizes will be given by the duo on behalf of AIADMK symbolising the two-leaves symbol of the ruling party, the Minister said.
"It is a rain of prizes" he said, referring to winners in the Avaniapuram jallikattu held today bagging a host of prizes given by the local festival committee.
Palaniswami said he and Panneerselvam would jointly inaugurate the event.
