The former Chief Minister, the late Nandamuri Taraka Rama Rao had got a rare honor. So far the lessons in the primary and secondary school textbooks contain the life histories of several freedom fighters and for the leaders who worked for the country. In the recently released text books of class X the life history of NTR was included as the lesson. It could be seen in the 286th page of latest social studies book.
The chapter, which will be introduced from this academic year, will tell about how NTR launched his party and restored Telugu prime.NTR fans throughout the world felt happy with the news but some started criticizing the idea of State government and targeted Chandrababu for making this effort.
Surprisingly Telangana congress leader and Rajya Sabha member V Hanumanth Rao has asked the Government of Andhra Pradesh to include how NTR was stabbed in the back and how his family members humiliated him.
While speaking about this VH has raised several concerns and questioned will the story of NTR’s dethronement too find a place in the text book? Will the lesson talk about how and why he was dethroned? Who stabbed him in the back and who unseated him?
He said that the period of NTR’s life where he went through severe mental stress should also be included in the text books.He also pointed out that Modi had categorically mentioned that his life story should not be part of the curriculum. Whereas Chandra Babu included NTR’s life story in syllabus. Hanumantha Rao said that it will be a dangerous sign and Government should steer clear of such inclusions for short-term benefits.
Who will listen to VH? What is the problem for the veteran leader if NTR name was included that too in Andhra Pradesh state text books? It’s better to sit quiet at home if he doesn’t have much work to do.
