Don’t celebrate I-Day as per Centre’s format: Mamata govt


The minister said the Central government should have “properly notified” the state authorities if they were planning a special Idependence Day celebration this year.

The Human Resource Development Ministry had issued a circular on July 25 to all state Education Secretaries specifying “additional activities” to be undertaken by schools under the Sarva Shiksha Mission to celebrate Independence Day in a “befitting manner”.

It asked every school to arrange a “Sankalp programme” from August 9 to August 30 and organise an oath-taking ceremony where all teachers and students would have to take a vow to rid the country of the five problems of poverty, corruption, terrorism, communalism and casteism by 2022, when the nation would be celebrating 75 years of freedom.
