Lucknow: Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Sunday raised objection over "hi and bye" culture saying people should get rid of it.

"Today, youths even say 'hi and bye' to their parents. This culture must be done away with. Can't they touch the feet of their parents," Singh said.

"Touching feet is a mark of respect and does not belittle a person," the BJP leader said, adding 'Jo jhukna nahi jaante, woh toot jaate hain.'

Singh stressed that touching feet was part of Indian values, and it should be inculcated in the children.
