After the removal of a chapter about Haryana leaders from Class 5 textbooks generated much heat, the Haryana government Wednesday decided to introduce chapters on those involved in freedom struggle from the state in Class 5 and Class 6 textbooks. The chapters will be introduced in the next one month.
Haryana Education Minister Ram Bilas Sharma, while addressing the media, Wednesday said that the chapter was removed from the Class 5 textbook after recommendations by NCERT. A chapter on freedom fighters was added to the Class 4 textbook. “A meeting of officials of the Education Department and SCERT officials was held Wednesday. A chapter Haryana Mein Azadi Andolan will be added to the curriculum for Classes 5 and 6,” he said.
