Hayagriba Madhav temple’s chief Shiva Prasad Sarma has launched an indefinite hunger strike from following the Gauhati High Court decision to ban Bulbul fight on Magh Bihu.
Many local residents also joined Sarma in protest. Sarma asserted that he will only withdraw his hunger strike if the administration allows the traditional bulbul fight on Magh Bihu day as all preparations were on in full swing. He also asserted that temple authority will continue with its legal battle for allowing the traditional bulbul fight.
Many people across the state welcomed the decision of High court.
