Neighbourhood News Desk/ Garima Kotroo: The Delhi Minorities Commision (DMC) has issued a circular to the North Delhi Municipal Corporation (NDMC) over recitation of “Gayatri Mantra” in schools during assemblies.

The circular has asked the education department to add Gayatri Mantra along with the National Anthem, prayers and slogans in morning assemblies.

The BJP-governed NDMC has defended the circular by saying “it is a personal choice of the students. The municipal corporation runs 765 primary schools where around 2.2 lakh students are enrolled”.
