Ahmedabad, Apr 4: Citing of Bharat Mata ki Jai slogan which has been dominating news headlines for some times now has allegedly created another a row in Gujarat.
According to report, an educational institute has made it mandatory to write 'Bharat Mata ki Jai'on the application form if you are seeking an admission in the institute.
Shree Patel Vidhyarthi Ashram Trust, headed by BJP leader Dilip Sanghani has made it mandatory to write the slogan 'Bharat Mata ki Jai' on the institue's admission form on Sunday.
The trust runs a primary school, two high schools and a college in Amreli. Currently, around 4,500 students study in the four institutes.

"Students who don't write Bharat Mata ki Jai on the admission forms will not get admission," Sanghani was quoted as saying by Ahmedabad Mirror.
Congress has criticised this decision saying that BJP is trying to divide the country.
