The TRS made the promise in their election manifesto that the history and culture of Telangana will be included in school textbooks. Going on with the promise made all is set ready for the same. According to sources as far as the new course syllabus is concerned the school textbooks in Telangana will exclude the entire chapters and references of Andhra Pradesh history.
According to the sources it is learnt that the Telangana government is firm on the very issue. It wants all chapters which are related to Andhra history and the culture specific to that region to be erased from all school textbooks. The Telangana government also formulated two committees to review the syllabus for social studies and Telugu. It is also intended to include Telangana specific chapters in place of the excluded chapters. It also said that the change in the syllabus will not affect students in examinations, since Telangana authorities will only be setting up the respective question papers.
