The State government has set up a committee with the former Additional Chief Secretary D. Babu Paul as chairman to look into shortcomings in the Social Studies textbook for standard X.

The other members of the committee are historian M.G.S. Narayanan and former Director of Archives S. Raimon. The committee is to submit its report in ten days. The Mananthavady diocese of the Syro-Malabar Church had alleged that a chapter in the textbook portrays the Catholic community in poor light.
