New Delhi:

The Jallikattu bill on Monday passed unanimously in Assembly. Tamil Nadu Chief Minister O Panneerselvam tabled Jallikattu bill in Assembly.

Earlier, Speaker P Dhanapal said that the decision was taken at a meeting of the Business Advisory Council which decides on the agenda and duration of a particular session of the state assembly.

The bill came in the backdrop of state-wide police crackdown on pro-Jallikattu protesters who have been agitating for the past one week, demanding lifting of the ban on the bull-taming sport.

Despite promulgation of an ordinance on Saturday for conducting the sport, they had vowed to carry on with their protest till a permanent solution was found to ensure that the sport is held annually without any hindrance.
