TS Congress leaders demanded that a new text-book be printed including Sonia Gandhi’s name along with the names of martyrs. They also threatened to begin stir if the changes as suggested by them were not incorporated in the new text-books. The latest text-book has been described as an autobiography of Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao. Congress leader expressed their ire over omission in 10th class social studies text-books the name of their party chief Sonia Gandhi, who was responsible for the formation of Telangana. They were upset that text-books instead highlighted that KCR was alone instrumental in TS creation.
PCC chief Uttamkumar Reddy on the other made clear that the TS would not have been materialised at all in case the Congress party did not take an initiative on the issue. He demanded that the syllabus must be changed immediately as wrong history was printed misleading the students. Council Floor leader Shabbir Alli also pointed out that Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao ditched them as he had assured that the name of Sonia would be included in the lessons and added that legislative council bears a testimony to this fact.
