Jaipur: Municipal Corporation makes national anthem song mandatory

Jaipur: Municipal Corporation makes national anthem song mandatory”

The JMC issued an order making it compulsory for the staff to sing the national anthem every morning and Vande Matram every evening. Jaipur Mayor Ashok Lahoty said anyone opposing this decision "should go to Pakistan". Abiding by the order, around 350 people sang the national anthem on Tuesday morning.

The order, dated October 30, 2017 and signed by additional commissioner of JMC, Har Sahay Meena, says the order has the approval of Jaipur mayor and the JMC commissioner.

The anthem and song would be played on speakers in the entire office premises and the staff do not need to assemble at one place, the mayor said.

"Nothing is better than National Anthem and National Song to start and end the day with positive energy, on a positive note". Nationalism inspires a sense of service among people.

"It has many benefits". This will develop a work culture, there will be positive energy. As for Vande Mataram in the evening, Lahoty said: "A person returns home with work fatigue, (but) he should leave office temperament in office itself". So, before going home, there can not be a bigger festival for us than (singing) the national song. For him, it is more important for the staff to sing the national anthem than do their job properly. "We are not asking anyone to chant a religious slogan".

"It's a good decision and singing the national anthem certainly gives you a feeling of patriotism", said Ashok Yogi, deputy commissioner of JMC.

The apex court had in 2016 ordered the theatres across the country to mandatorily play the national anthem before a movie and the audience must stand and show respect, in a bid to "instil committed patriotism and nationalism". "So, every child should know what one's stance should be during the anthem; they should know which nation they are living in".
