Thiruvananthapuram, Oct 10 (UNI) Leader of the Opposition in the Kerala Assembly Oommen Chandy today said an expert committee appointed by the Left Democratic Front(LDF) Government to look into the controversial portions of the Class VII textbook, endorsed the United Democratic Front(UDF) views.

Talking to newspersons here, he said K N Panikkar, who headed the Committee admitted that allegations levelled by the UDF and its Youth Organisations, were correct.

Mr Chandy said that if the State Education Minister M A Baby had taken the issues seriously, problems could have been averted. Mr Baby should apologise to the people of the State, he added.

Pointing out the remarks by Dr Panikkar that the text book should be revised, he said it was proved beyond doubt that the contents in the book were not suitable for teaching.
