Making this announcement on Tuesday, Madhya Pradesh School Education Minister Vijay Shah said that from October 1, students of all government schools in this district would answer the roll call by uttering the words "Jai Hind" as the sentiment of nationalism should be communicated right from student days.

He was speaking at a divisional meeting of teachers, principals, Jan Shikshaks and block resource coordinators in Chitrakoot.

"Private schools have also been advised to follow the instructions but for now, this is just a suggestion for them. We hope all schools adhere to it since it relates to patriotism, he said.

"We will take permission from CM if experiment turns successful, and would like to implement it in entire MP," he added.

To inculcate patriotism among students, the state government has already given instructions on hoisting the Tricolour and singing the national anthem in schools every day, the minister said.
