Kolkata: In a fresh confrontation with the central government, the West Bengal government issued “urgent” instructions to all schools and other educational institutions to “stop all preparations” for celebrating Independence Day 2017 in a format prescribed by the Union HRD Ministry.

The Mamata Banerjee government’s response to the circular issued by the Human Resource Development Ministry came in the form of a directive to all District Project Officers in-charge of the Sarva Shikha Mission in the state.

Virtually negating the Union ministry circular for celebrating the 70th year of India’s independence with certain “additional participatory activities in schools and colleges”, the state government directive issued on August 11 noted, “It has been decided by the School Education Department that Independence Day 2017 will not be celebrated in this manner” and asked schools to carry on with their usual mode of celebrating the occasion like every year.
