BJP leader Ashwini Upadhyay files PIL in Delhi High Court to elevate ‘Vande Mataram’ to status of ‘Jana-Gana-Mana’

Upadhyay has argued that the sentiments expressed in ‘Jana Gana Mana’ have been expressed keeping the State in view. However, sentiments expressed in ‘Vande Mataram’ denote the nation’s character and style and therefore deserve similar respect.

He added that ‘Vande Mataram’ is the symbol of India’s history, sovereignty, unity and pride and if any citizen by any cover or overt act shows disrespect to it, it would not only be anti-social activity but would also spell doom to all our rights and very existence.

“Every citizen must therefore not only refrain from any such activities but also do his best to prevent any miscreant trying to show any disrespect to ‘Vandemataram’. We must be proud of our Nation, our Constitution, National Anthem and National Flag and put national interest above our personal interests and only then will we be able to protect our hard-earned freedom and sovereignty. It is the duty of the executive to frame a national policy to promote and propagate ‘Vandemataram’,” read his plea.
