The BJP government in Madhya Pradesh has issued an order making it mandatory for students to answer their roll-call with ‘Jai Hind’ instead of ‘present madam’ or ‘present sir’. 

While addressing NCC cadets on the National Cadet Corps Day on Sunday, School Education Minister Vijay Shah announced that now students would answer to roll-calls by saying ‘Jai Hind’. 

He said this would be enforced in all 1.22 lakh government schools, and an advisory in this regard would also be issued to all private schools.

Earlier, Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan had said that parents should be called "Mata" and "Pita" in India, instead of being "mom" and "dad", which he said was more prevalent these days.
