Indore Mayor stops national anthem, asks for Vande Mataram

Indore (MP): Indore Mayor Malini Gaur on Wednesday cut short the singing of the national anthem and asked for Vande Mataram in its place at a meeting, an action that may stir controversy.

She was by honoured President Ram Nath Kovind during the Swachh Survekshan Awards in March this year.
