Replace ‘Sindh’ with ‘Northeast’ in the national anthem: Congress MP Ripun Bora

Assam Pradesh Congress Committee President and Rajya Sabha MP Ripun Bora on Friday, March 16 moved a private member’s resolution in the Rajya Sabha seeking to replace the word ‘Sindh’ in the national anthem with the word ‘Uttar Purv’ (North East) saying there is no point glorifying the place which belongs to a hostile nation. He also said that when the national anthem was adopted in 1950, the then President Rajendra Prasad had said if required the anthem would be amended in future. The resolution is expected to be taken up next week.
