Madhya Pradesh Education Minister Vijay Shah on Wednesday directed all the schools in Satna district to make sure that the students answer roll call with "Jai Hind" instead of "yes Sir/Madam" from October 1.

What's more, "if the experiment turns successful", the "Jai Hind"-for-'yes, ma'am' response will be made mandatory in all of Madhya Pradesh's schools".

The new measure has, for now, been passed on to the government schools.

Shah also said that if this mission is successful, then after the Chief Minister's agreement, he would request to implement this all over Madhya Pradesh, whether it's a public school or a private school.

"And if they don't listen, we would drop the media on them", Shah said laughingly.

However, the minister will hold a meeting of teachers, principals, Jan Shikshaks and block resource coordinators in Chitrakoot.

It would be interesting to witness what parents, school authorities and the students have to say about the decision taken by the education minister.

In March 2017, Shah suggested that Sanskrit should be made the national language of India. He also added that as it is a matter of patriotism, he would suggest the same to be practised in private schools as well. The school, however, denied the charges.

He said that he didn't like the concept of "yes sir, yes madam" in schools and hence, directed the schools to do this.
