BHOPAL: Days after Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan said that people in India should use words "Mata" and "Pita" for their parents, a state minister has announced that from now onwards, the students will have to answer their roll-call with "Jai Hind".

While addressing NCC cadets on the National Cadet Corps Day on Sunday, School Education Minister Vijay Shah announced that now students would answer to roll-calls by saying "Jai Hind" instead of "yes sir" and "yes ma'am".

He said this would be enforced in all 1.22 lakh government schools, and an advisory in this regard would also be issued to all private schools.
