Staff Reporter,


The new Government in MP led by Kamal Nath decided to discontinue recital of Vande Mataram for the time being.

Opposing the decision of Congress Government to stop recital of Vande Mataram at Vallabh Bhawan park for time being, BJP leaders and workers assembled at Vallabh Bhawan park and recited Vande Matram. On this occasion, BJP leaders criticised Congress in strong words.

It was around 11 am that BJP workers gathered at Vallabh Bhawan park to sing “Vande Mataram”. They recited Vande Mataram song. Taking umbrage on Government decision to discontinue “Vande Mataram”, BJP leaders and workers accused Congress of favouring oppressing policies.

They alleged that, in past, Indira Gandhi brought Emergency to throttle democracy and State Government led by Kamal Nath is also treading the same path. Congress Government discontinued Vande Mataram song recital which was going on for the last 13 years. On this occasion, former minister Umashankar Gupta, BJP State General Secretary V D Sharma, MLA Rameshwar Sharma, MLA and former minister Vishwas Sarang, MLA Krishna Gaur, ex MLA Surendra Nath Singh, Jalam Singh Patel, etc. were also present.
