Valentine's Day need not be celebrated as ‘Matru Pitru Pujan Diwas’- a day dedicated to parents - in Rajasthan anymore, the state government said today, canceling an order by the previous BJP government.

The Ashok Gehlot and Sachin Pilot-led Congress government scrapped the Vasundhara Raje government's order from last year that said February 14 should be a day dedicated to parents.

In 2017, the then BJP government in Chattisgarh had asked students to observe ‘matru-pitru divas’ on Valentine's Day. A note was sent by the Chhattisgarh Directorate Public Education to principals and heads of all schools to observe the day. The state government had issued similar instructions in 2015 too.

Two years ago, the district collector in Madhya Pradesh's Chhindwara came out with an order to observe February 14 as ‘Matru-Pitru Pujya Diwas’.
