Maharashtra Education minister Vinod Tawde confirmed that the local authorities in Maharashtra's Satara district have issued the circulars to all the schools under Panchayat Samitis in the district to observe February 14 as Mother's Day.
Here's what he told rediff.com: "The circular is issued by the local authority. The state government doesn't go with the views of these local authorities. The person who issued the circular has done it with good intentions. But it is not his job. He should not have done it."
