Earlier, AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi had termed the compulsion of singing Vande Mataram as ‘unconstitutional’.
Mumbai Mayor Vishwanath Mahadeshwar had said in a statement that all the BMC run schools will have to sing ‘Vande Mataram’ twice a week. The proposal will be sent to the Maharashtra Government for a final approval.
The Madras High Court in July ordered singing of the national song Vande Mataram in all educational institutions at least once in a week.
The court ordered that the song should be sung preferably on Monday or Friday.
