Chapters on former prime minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee will also be included in the text books.

Saraf believes if dedicated chapters on the life of former Congress leaders like Jawaharlal Nehru, Indira Gandhi and Rajiv Gandhi can be included in the books then other deserving leaders should also be pegged in school syllabus.

Saraf said that inspirational events from Modi's life would be incorporated in text books after BJP forms the government at the Centre.

"Modi is an inspirational personality and young students should learn about his life. We plan to incorporate some inspirational events from Modi's biography in school books when he becomes the next Prime Minister," Saraf said.

He said the idea struck his mind a couple of days ago and is now at initial level and will be executed later.

"Modi sold tea in his childhood and has become the most popular leader today. His struggle gives motivation and it should be learnt by students. We will bring the biography of Modi from Gujarat for the purpose," he said.

After the local media reported the Education Minister's plan on Thursday, additional chief secretary of the School, Higher and Technical Education Department Shyam S Aagarwal said, "We do not have any proposal of having Modi's biography on text books in the state. Nothing so far..."
