“REFUSING TO SING VANDE MATARAM SHOWS NARROW MINDENESS” : SAYS UP CM YOGI ADITYANATH

Amid the row over ‘Vande Mataram’, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath today hit out at those refusing to sing the national song saying it reflected their “narrow mindedness”.  “Some people are saying that we will not sing Vande Matram… We want this country to move ahead in the 21st century and the matter of dispute is that we will sing Vande Mataram or not… This is a matter of concern,” he said.  “We will have to find a way out to overcome this narrow mindedness,” Adityanath said.  The chief minister was speaking at a book release function at the Raj Bhawan here.  His remarks came against the backdrop of Samajwadi Party corporators protesting a proposal to make singing of the national song compulsory at commencement of proceedings of a meeting of Allahabad municipal corporation.
