Lucknow/IBNS: The books written by Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath and yoga guru Ramdev will be a part of syllabus for undergraduate students of Philosophy in colleges and universities across the north Indian state.

As per a report by The Print, Chaudhary Charan Singh University (CCSU) has already incorporated the books of the two in syllabus.

Adityanath's Hathyoga Ka Swaroop va Sadhna and Ramdev's Yog Sadhna va Yog Chikitsa Rahasya are included in the syllabus of the second semester undergraduate philosophy course.

DN Singh, convenor of Board of Studies at Chaudhary Charan Singh University, said as quoted by News 18, "We need literature like this to learn about Yoga, our ancient science. Similarly, Ramdev’s book is also a good addition for Philosophy students because he is the Yoga guru… He has taken Yoga to the masses." 

A member of the syllabus development committee said as quoted by News 18, "All the books were chosen to be there because of their high academic and literary value. Some are suggested readings and some are a part of the credit-based course."
