Meerut : The Meerut Municipal Corporation prohibited seven of its member from attending a meeting after they refused to sing Vande Mataram. The corporators who refused to sing the national song are from the Samajwadi Party.
It was then that some members belonging to opposition walked out after which the BJP councillors started raising slogans, “Hindustan me rehna hai to Vande Mataram kehna hoga”.
“The mayor ordered us to sing Vande Mataram and threatened that he will not let us sit in the Sadan (House) if we do not follow his directive. It is up to us whether we will sing it or not. The orders were delivered rudely, so we decided to boycott the proceedings,” said Afzal Saifi, one of the corporators to The Indian Express.
