The Department of School Education stated that orders in this regard have been issued to District Education Officers.

Earlier, the Maharashtra government made the reading of Preamble of the Constitution after prayer mandatory in all primary and secondary schools, starting from 26 January.

The statement issued by School Education Minister and senior Congress leader Varsha Gaikwad on Tuesday, read, "From 26 January, a programme called Sovereignty of Constitution, the public interest of all will be started, wherein every school Preamble of the Constitution will be read by all in a group before the classes begin."

"It is being done so that everyone comes to know and understand the basic principles of the inclusiveness, justice, equality, liberty and brotherhood," the statement read.

A similar order was passed by the School Education and Sports Department on 4 February, 2013, but was observed that this order of 2013 is not being complied, according to the statement.
