A 22–member delegation of Mumbai Regional Congress Committee–Minority Department met Governor Ch Vidyasagar Rao at Raj Bhavan here and made the demand. The delegation asked the Governor to prevail upon the civic boy to revoke the resolution following which he assured them that he will forward the memorandum presented by the Committee to the state government. The Sena-BJP ruled BMC had passed a resolution this week making yoga and ‘Suryanamaskar’ mandatory in all civic schools here.
