Madhya Pradesh's school education minister Vijay Shah on Wednesday directed all schools in Satna district to ensure from 1 October that all students answer their roll call with 'Jai Hind' instead of the regular 'Yes/No'.

If the move is successful in the district, Shah will also request its implementation all over the state, India Today reported.

Making the announcement at a divisional meeting of teachers, principals, Jan Shikshaks (cluster academic coordinators) and block resource coordinators in Chitrakoot, he said that the move will help inculcate patriotism among students, The Indian Express reported. Shah, however, said that the administration could only put it forth as a suggestion to private schools.

"For now, this is just a suggestion. We hope they will adhere to it since it relates to patriotism," Shah told ANI.

Shah also told the media that he didn't like the concept of saying 'yes sir, yes madam' in schools and hence came up with this idea.

"I have a military background; my grandfathers have been in the Army. And whenever they come to meet, they always say 'Jai Hind' which I think is a way of respecting your nation, and the feeling of love for your country is shown through his gesture," Shah added, according to a report by The Huffington Post.
