Bhopal: In order to create a sense of belongingness among the people of Madhya Pradesh, the state government has decided that the state song will be sung along with the National Anthem and National Song in all government functions. In addition, posters carrying the state song would be pasted in all the government offices.

Madhya Pradesh is the only state to compose a state song. Although there were initial inhibitions to accept the state song (Sukh ka data sabka sathi…), the state administrative authorities recently passed an order and instructed all the government offices, colleges and schools to sing the state song along with National Anthem and National Song.

Not only this, the mobile phones provided to the government employees by the state government will also have the state song as the ringtone.

While renowned music director Aadesh Srivastav has given the music, bollywood singer Shaan has rendered his voice for the song.

Senior BJP leader LK Advani released the poster of the song last week. The poster has been pasted in nearly 1.5 lakh government offices of the state. The posters will also find a place in the offices of Chief Minister, Chief Secretary, Ministers and departmental heads.

Culture and Public Relations Minister Laxmikant Sharma has written to Secretary Avani Vaish that posters are being delivered in government office by the public relations department. He instructed Vaish to ensure that the posters are pasted at the earliest. According to the Minister, posters will reach all the government offices within the next two months.
