     The oath was administered to schoolchildren at Nehru Park in UP's Sonbhadra district. It ended with slogans of "Bharat Mata Ki Jai", "Vandre Mataram", and "Jai Hind."

But we will not back down even for a moment, no matter the sacrifice. May our ancestors, teachers, Mother India give us enough strength so that we can fulfill our pledge. May they give us victory," the pledge stated. 

    The children, dressed in their school uniforms, had gathered in the park after school hours. Some kids visiting the park with their parents were also part of the oath-taking event.
