Students to answer roll call with 'Jai Hind' in MP district


Bhopal, Sep 13 (PTI): To foster "patriotism", students at government schools in Satna district of Madhya Pradesh would be instructed to answer the daily roll call with 'Jai Hind' from the next month.

"Students say 'yes sir' or 'yes madam' or 'present' during the roll call. What good do these English acknowledgements achieve? I have asked the principals of government schools in Satna to direct the students to say 'Jai Hind' from October 1," School Education Minister Vijay Shah told PTI today.

"After this experiment works in Satna, we will send a proposal to Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan to introduce 'Jai Hind' during roll calls in all the 1.22 lakh government schools in Madhya Pradesh," he said.

"Jai Hind chants will foster love for the country and patriotism," the minister said, noting that the Army and para-military personnel use 'Jai Hind' as a greeting.

Shah also said that the national flag is being hoisted daily at government middle and high schools (from class VI to XII) for over a month in Madhya Pradesh now.

"This daily exercise is going to be replicated in primary schools too," he said.

"We have also sent an advisory to private schools affiliated to the MP Board of Secondary Education that they may hoist the national flag daily," the minister added.

"We have also prepared a proposal for clearance of gram panchayats to name schools in villages after the local army martyrs," Shah said.

    "Jai Hind" should always be there in mind, heart and soul of each and every Indian who loves his Nation.
    But, using such things for political gain ??

    This makes no sense. Patriotism cannot be forced. It is a feeling not an activity. NOW these so-called Patriots of RSS are questioning "patriotism" of children.. They should be ashamed of themselves!

    Never destroy the respect of a class room...
    Teacher is the first student of a class...
    Respect him first...
    Jai Hind can be said aloud in many other platforms meant for it...

    Jai Hind is not "Saffron" Mr. Leslie. It's "Tricolor".
