Chennai The Tamil Nadu government is recalling around 300,000 economics and history text books in which DMK president M Karunanidhi is still listed as the state's chief minister in the preface, even four years after AIADMK chief J Jayalalithaa replacing him.

The government realized the goof-up in the class 11 economics text book and recalled it first. Later the same issue was found in the history text book.

The error came to light when a teacher in the Coimbatore district pointed it out and the officials in the education department asked the schools to recall the text books, printed by the government-owned Tamil Nadu Textbook and Educational Services Corporation.

The preface also mentioned DMK leader Thangam Thennarasu as the education minister.

Apparently a wrong print plate was used while printing the text books for the two subjects that went unnoticed, said an official who did not want to be identified.

The preface in question referred to Karunanidhi as Tamil Nadu chief minister who formed a committee to revise the syllabus and thanked Thennarasu for his support.
