‘Present sir’ roll call to be replaced with ‘Jai Hind’ in Madhya Pradesh schools

Madhya Pradesh: After compulsory flag hoisting introduced in Madhya Pradesh schools in January, the Shivraj Singh Chouhan government will make Jai Hind mandatory for all students from November to mark their attendance.

Satna will be the first district where this practice will be introduced from October 1 — a month before implementing the same in all the schools across the state, after getting a nod from the state cabinet, reported Hindustan Times, a newspaper based in India.

School education minister Vijay Shah said the decision was taken to instill a sense of patriotism among students.
