BHOPAL: Schoolchildren in Madhya Pradesh will soon be required to answer ‘Jai Hind’ when their roll call is taken in class daily.
The new diktat is to be implemented in government schools in Satna district from October 1. If it is successful, it's likely to be replicated in schools in the other 50 districts of the state.
The announcement was made by Madhya Pradesh school education minister Kunwar Vijay Shah at a divisional meeting of teachers, principals, Jan Shikshaks and block resource coordinators in Satna district on Tuesday.
