The move comes in the wake of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s decision to demonetise Rs 500 and Rs 1000 notes and the government launching new notes in the country.

The mahasabha had earlier urged the PM to stop universities and colleges from teaching students that Mahatama Gandhi is “father of the nation” when the same has not been done officially by the government.

However, in 2014, a Reserve Bank of India (RBI) panel has decided against the inclusion of any other national leader’s image on banknotes saying that no other personality could better represent the ethos of the country than Mahatma Gandhi.
