NEW DELHI: To promote patriotism, students in schools in a Madhya Pradesh city will now have to respond to the daily roll call with a 'Jai Hind', instead of the customary 'yes, ma'am' or 'yes, sir', reported news agency ANI.

Schools in Satna city have been directed to ensure this happens starting October 1, said the BJP-run Madhya Pradesh's school education minister Vijay Shah to ANI.

"For now, this is just a suggestion (for private schools in Satna); we hope they'll adhere to it since it relates to patriotism," said Shah to ANI.

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.

"Will take permission from CM (chief minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan) if experiment turns successful, and would like to implement it in entire MP," said Shah to ANI.

Shah has been on a drive to "instil strong patriotic values" in citizens.
