ANI  |  Mumbai (Maharashtra) [India] 

Amid the intensifying debate over making singing the Song compulsory, chief on Sunday said it is important to frame a regarding 'Vande Mataram', instead of politicising the issue.

"People should say 'Vande Mataram' everyday. should be farmed regarding it, instead of doing politics over it," Thackeray said, while addressing a gathering here.

Thackeray also targetted the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and asked whether it would take any action against their own minister making controversial remarks over the same.

"Will BJP remove those ministers from the party who said that a person cannot be termed as anti-if they don't say 'Vande Mataram'?" he asked without taking any name.

Earlier on Thursday, the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) issued a notice to make the singing of Vande Mataram compulsory in all BMC-run schools.

Mumbai Mayor Vishwanath Mahadeshwar said, in a statement, that all the BMC-run schools will have to sing 'Vande Mataram' twice a week.

The proposal will be sent to the Maharashtra Government for a final approval. This comes after the Madras High Court had in July ordered the singing of the song in all educational institutions at least once in a week.
