Shah is believed to have said that an advisory will be issued to all private schools. He made the announcement while addressing National Cadet Corps from Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh in Bhopal on Sunday. The minister said a circular making it compulsory in 1.22 lakh government schools will be issued on Monday. He said an advisory will be issued to all private schools. The minister also announced that Air Wing and Naval Wing of NCC will be started in Khandwa. The government will also assist in setting up of air wings of the NCC in other parts of the state.“Jai Hind is acceptable to students of all religions so I have decided to introduce it. We just want to keep our culture alive which our young generation is forgetting,” said Shah.
Shah also said the national flag is being hoisted daily at government middle and high schools (from class VI to XII) for over a month in Madhya Pradesh now. “This daily exercise is going to be replicated in primary schools too,” he said.
