The ‘Jai Shri Ram’ slogan is religious, said the Assam Assembly Speaker Biswajit Daimary.
On August 13, a few ruling party representatives gave ‘Jai Shri Ram’ and ‘Bharat Mata Ki Jai’ slogans during the Assembly session. This happened after passing the new Assam Cattle Preservation Bill 2021, which has received mixed responses.
Social media users said this was a religious slogan and asked the question if the Constitution of India is a secular one? Daimary, in a press meeting today, said that the slogan is not religious and can be given on the floor of the assembly.
