Minister wants students to answer roll call with 'Jai Hind — Madhya Pradesh

Minister wants students to answer roll call with 'Jai Hind — Madhya Pradesh”

Madhya Pradesh's school education minister Vijay Shah on Wednesday directed all schools in Satna district to ensure from 1 October that all students answer their roll call with "Jai Hind" instead of the regular "Yes/No". After the controversy, Vijay Shah clarified all those who were not able to pay the amount were also welcome to take a selfie with him.

The new measure has, for now, been passed on to the government schools.

On being asked whether this would be implemented in the private schools, Shah said, "We can only give them a suggestion regarding this, after this how much they follow it, depends on them".

Shah added that should the experiment is successful, formal permission will be taken from the chief minister to implement the rule in all schools in the state.

Making the announcement at a divisional meeting of teachers, principals, Jan Shikshaks (cluster academic coordinators) and block resource coordinators in Chitrakoot, he said that the move will help inculcate patriotism among students, The Indian Expressreported.

Shivraj Singh Chouhan government in MP had earlier made Yoga as an integral part in the Madhya Pradesh school curriculum.

In March 2017, Shah suggested that Sanskrit should be made the national language of India. "Apart from Hindi, MP has no official language", said the Education Minister of MP. He also added that as it is a matter of patriotism, he would suggest the same to be practised in private schools as well.
