The Union Human Resource Development Ministry has asked NCERT which decides the curriculum of various subjects in schools in India to include former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee’s life, achievements, and poems in its textbooks. The textbooks would contain Vajpayee’s long political careers apart from his tenure as PM.

The NCERT books are used in CBSE schools across India. “There was a meeting held recently on this where it was decided that the NCERT will explore ways to include more on Vajpayee in school textbooks and that the new books be adopted from 2019,” told a senior official in the Department of School Education and Literacy in the Ministry to The New Indian Express. “It was also decided that not only Vajpayee’s political achievements but also some of the poems be included in literature textbooks in various classes,” the official added. Vajpayee passed away on August 16 following a prolonged illness that had kept him away from public life since 2009. He was given a state funeral by the Narendra Modi government.Click Here: West Coast Eagles Guernsey
