“…We do not intend to enter into any debate as far as the national song is concerned,” said the bench of Justice Dipak Misra, Justice R. Banumathi and Justice Mohan M. Shantanagouder, declining the plea by a lawyer Ashwini Upadhyay.

Upadhyay, who is also the spokesman of the Delhi unit of the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), had urged the court to direct the framing of a “national policy to promote and propagate the national anthem, national song and national flag in the spirit of Article 51A to achieve the great golden goals, as set out in Preamble of the Constitution of India”.

However, the court tagged the plea, urging it to ascertain the feasibility of singing/ playing of the national anthem and the national song in the school on every working day, with an earlier pending matter as it recalled that Attorney General Mukul Rohatgi too had urged the court to make singing of the national anthem mandatory in schools.
