The book tiled 'Samaj Upyogee Yojnayein' is part of changes being made to state board curriculum to include chapters on PM Modi's schemes like demonetization, Swachh Bharat Mission and Vasundhara Raje's Bhamashah Scheme. Versions of the proposed textbooks under new curriculum are also available online.
A chapter on Swachh Bharat scheme details PM Modi's flagship scheme along with its achievements. It also instructs students to 'internalise' words of PM Modi's Swachh Bharat pledge. "Repeat the pledge delivered by Prime Minister Narendra Modi to all citizens of the country on 2nd October 2014 and internalise its every word," the chapter reads.
