Hi friends this is Saravan am little bit weak in English.

In my point of view every politician should literate because this is modern era, all social communication & interaction with people takes in online & technology, and also if politician illiterate he can not propose any schemes, acts etc-- relating to education in assembly, some peoples can cheat this illiterate politician, may be it is possible.

Hi friends, I think educational qualification of politicians must be serious concern before voting. Voting for someone implies I am choosing that person for proper management of resources regarding any particular department.

So if he is not deft enough regarding basic things of the sector he is allotted to, it may not be possible to make the most effective decisions regarding different issues. Although management is there to determine the policies but the supreme power holder must have some perception and conception.

About that otherwise even a good proposal may face strong oppositions and may be discarded. Also from social point of view due to lack of proper education up-to a certain extent can make it difficult for him to earn a reputation.

I think a minimum educational qualification maybe 12 or graduate (of course not like masters or PhD) should be there for politicians too. Earlier everyone didn't have opportunity to study even though they wished and thus some bright and honest people too remained uneducated who later came to politics and did great works. But today is different, basic school education is easily available for all and anyone who skips it must be a lazy or an ignorant person.

The world is moving fast and every country wants to excel and for that we need knowledgeable leaders. Of course corruption is one thing we all are concerned about, and in my opinion both educated and uneducated are same corrupt, even a good person later becomes corrupt as he enters the political system, thus corruption is a different story as a whole. Just imagine we have a corruption free government plus educated leaders, then we could not have asked for anything more.

Good Mannerism and education are two different entities. We know many highly educated politician who failed miserably in politics and governance. Also we know many politicians who are not that educated, but did wonders in governance.

We should not forget that the biggest corruption in the history of India was surfaced at a time when our PM was one of the most educated of all time.

I believe that education qualification should be must for candidates contesting in an election. I don't say that candidates without educational qualifications will not be a good candidate. The political leaders are the people who represent the society or country as whole, hence it is necessary for them to be qualified. If the people's representatives are not educated then how can we think that our society can progress.

A well educated leader would be more better at communicating his views to the people or the world. The thinking perspective of the individual changes, which would help him in taking better decisions for the development of the society.

According to me qualification is very much necessary in order to select our leaders. But that should not be the utmost criteria for the selection. It is not that only these people's can do the desired things what people wants. They must have the mindset to do the betterment of our country. They must realize that they have certain commitments towards the people of our society. Only in this way the scenario can be changed.

Hi friends.

I want to say that education is not only the set of degrees and certificate but it is more than that it develops the person intellectually and fully. An educated person will think in a different way than an uneducated person.

On the other hand I also want to say that it can never be possible that an educated person will never make a mistake he will but will reform it as soon as he can. There are examples in the past in which the leaders who do not had the good qualification had done well but what happening today is the sons or relative of the politicians are driving our country and spoiling the resources they know that they will get ticket easily.

In my point of view there must be some education parameter for politicians.

According to my point of view qualification is important for candidates because candidate have not educated than how he or she understand the value of education. An educated person know how to face problems and solve them he use his or her knowledge but uneducated person cannot easily solve it.

So, Education is more important for candidates because the future of our country depends only him or her. An educated person can make right decision for better future of country not illiterate.

How can we give our future in their hand?

But at other side they also should have feeling for our country. They desperately want to do good for our country. Because without willingness nothing good going to happen. Some training should be given to them for that dedicating feeling towards the nation.

Hi friends,

I would like to say that education should not be the only factor to decide whether a person can be a political leader, or for that matter in any field. Education is a broader term more beyond just having a degree or educational qualification. Education is a form of learning wherein knowledge and skills and be imparted and having a academic degree is just one of the medium of gaining "education".

So speaking in those terms even practical experience can be a medium for gaining education. This is a well accepted fact and therefore, internships and vocational courses are encouraged across various degree courses.

So before being judgmental about a persons knowledge just on the basis of his academic qualification a comprehensive test should be conducted as a parameter for joining politics which would access personal attributes of an individual in weight-age with the academic lens.

Conclusion : Academic and experience should both be considered.

This is one of the most important issues in today's world. Educational qualification is very much essential for political leaders who are administrating our country. It is very much necessary to be properly educated for someone who is taking important decisions for our nation at every moment, otherwise their decisions may cause severe damage to our country's growth and future. Also while speaking in public, it is imperative to speak well and fluently, else it would send a wrong message of the standard of our administrative system.
My personal opinion is that there must be some yardstick of education for our politicians before being elected.

In my point of view, education is not only the degree or some certified person. Education give people knowledge and information. From calculation part of view, one leader needs knowledge. From history or geographical part of view, he needs information.

If leader gives all the functions/works responsibility to his next level person, and tries to relax only, then one day will definitely come when he will be thrown out of his chair by them. A leader should be confident enough to answer any question coming from anyone. Educated Leader's confidence will not be fake/religious at least.

So he/She should have his opinion and that should be a strong and mature decision. He/She should now what will be the effect of the scheme even before implementing. And all this will come true only if the leader is educated.

In my point of view, a politician must posses a good education level and with education he must be a good leadership quality. In country like India, India is a developing country not a developed country like America. America has good rules and regulations in their country because politicians of America are much better than our politician because of they are highly educated and they know the problems of world during their education, so education is a part where all can know the basic problems of a country and a world, and they can also find a solution.

From my era of concern, more than educational qualification I would keep honesty and will of the person to do something for nation on the top. Then comes leadership quality, practical knowledge and understanding of administration.

I think if a politician is educated then he would have more knowledge, better understanding. Can understand, analyse and find solutions in a better way.

And as one of the friend said an educated politician will be like icing on the cake.

I believe education helps a person think in a more innovative manner, it improves our vision towards the world.

For example: CAT requires a student to have great knowledge of mathematics, general knowledge, logical reasoning and also English. On the other hand a person who is going to lead our nation needs to do nothing.

Instead of choosing someone who unfortunately arrived in politics, educated persons deserves a better chance. And also some great leaders like Gandhi Ji, Nehru Ji, Dr.Ambedkar etc were all educated and serve as the examples.

Definitely, if a leader is well educated, he can work really well.

1) He will have a better understanding of everything, moreover he will have a better vision too on those things. So he can plan better & execute better. An educated leader will also be more practical in his approach.

2) He can generate better & smart Ideas to cop with problems that our country is facing.

3) He will understand call of time and will move with our educated youth for the progress of nation. This point is very important because we have seen politicians claiming that girls shouldn't wear jeans and other stupid comments that are highly condemnable.

4) Accepting uneducated leaders further promotes support to uneducated people.

5) An educated leader himself will definitely follow the law & rules of nation, that most of leaders doesn't do once they are in power and take shortcuts and misuse their position.

6) An educated leader will be of competent nature and will compete for the progress at a global level.

I'm glad to share my views here with you and being the part of this conversation. First, how can a politician being uneducated will lead the nation, without knowing even about administration of the democratic India? Education is not just restricted to classrooms, Administration, economics and politics also a part of education which are the basics for a politician.

Politicians must be the aspirants for the nation, not rulers or dictators. In my opinion, a responsible citizen must serve as a civil servant first and then enter into politics, when she/he get matures in governance and administration.

In my opinion domain expertise is not compulsory for a good politician. A leader will be always guided by an eminent panel of civil servants. So it is more than enough if we club the experience of a politician and the expertise of officials.

I think if a politician is qualified it would be icing on the cake. Because he can take decision on his own, he will not have to depend on others to guide him. Most importantly the politician should have a good heart and an appetite to serve to the betterment of the people.

Hello everyone,

We all know that education is the backbone of a person. Without education, a human can be compared to a valuable resource which is unused. Be it a normal citizen or a politician, education is extremely important; and as for a politician, one must be educated as if he/she is not educated then he/she won't be able to know the problems residing in the society, the problems which the common people are facing in their day to day lives, the external and internal affairs.

To solve a problem, one has to know the reasons of it, take steps to overcome it and lastly, take the precautionary actions so that such problems won't arise in future. Without being educated, it is not possible to solve or suppress the problem for a politician as they have to take the steps to overcome it.

Hence, I conclude that it is an important criteria for a politician to be educated.

Regarding this topic I think that it would be very good if the politicians are educated and well versed in their own department but even if the person is uneducated he should be at-least literate enough to learn new technologies and handle his own work.

Besides, I think education is not all a politician needs; he should have good leadership qualities and should be the one who really wants to help people in every way possible.

Being educated helps you make decisions and will accomplish things. Being educated helps you get a job but that isn't the main reason of education. You also get educated so you can communicate and understand the world.

According to me no need of education qualified for politics because many politicians develop the society without educated.

If the politician want to do good work then the stop this work by the corrupted leader. Education of the politician is depends on the leader of the party.

Hi Everyone,

Myself Venkat, I'm very glad here in expressing my views on the current discussion, I don't think so educational qualification is must for an politician because we elected him as we want a good leader not a good expert domain.

Of course it is important when it comes to the matter of technology but he can overcome that by bringing a right person to the administration by recruitment. First priority of an politician must to deliver good welfare to the people, I don't think so education qualification is required for that. I had seen many politicians practically who delivered very good administration without having any educational qualification.

The excellence of any politician lies in his leadership not in his domain experting. I believe that educated politician can do corruption very efficiently than an uneducated, we have to see the other side of the coin also. In my view, a politician with good awareness on the society and even with minimum educational qualification can deliver an excellent welfare to his people.

And talking about the great leaders of our country like prime ministers, president, speaker, home minister. Should be elected from the experienced person who cleared ias and serving our nation from a long period.

As per the syllabus of IAS, those who cleared it must be knowing all about internal and external government and its system. And with his experience he can come up with an idea which can change our country.

For example, if one person do the work day by day then he get experienced in that work. Because every educated person can not become a politician he should know about people. Confidence lies in him itself. From this we can say that if talent lies in him without education anything can be achieved.

Hi Friends,

My name is Virender and according to my view educational qualification for politicians is not only necessary for their own benefit but also for the betterment of country. As long as they are good educated they can take good decision, they can analyze many situation as per their best ability and knowledge. Having good educational qualification will not only give the opportunity to make them a good leader but also help them to be a good doer.

Moreover good knowledge always brings good thing and helps an individual to become a good thinker, analyzer, decision maker and most important good doer. So as per my opinion educational qualification if very important for politicians to fight with the problems and taking right decision in tough time.

Especially in the field of technology. So I think only a political leaders with good vision and education can take up our Bharat to greater heights.

The Best example is Former our PM Rajiv Gandhi who bought a revolution in technology. But as my friends told there as exceptional cases too but less.

Good evening friends,

I am Sanjay Negi, and I am here to express my views on this topic of discussion, whether politician being educated or not.

So, from my point of view, every person should be educated. Education i.e, not having degree from oxford, IIT. i.e, every one should have minimum education. It doesn't means that person should have well command over English. He can speak Hindi as well as. By education thinking of person changes, behaviour change, how he communicate with others improves.

So in our country which has maximum number of population of uneducated i.e, 40-45%. If we see our minister they only knows how to blame the system, if if have educated minister in cabinet, then the way of approach changes. And special they can handle talk with foreign minister of other countries.

Hi friends,

Is minimum degree qualification is necessary for politicians in present scenario? The answer may be yes It's because every political person once entered into politics paves way for his family members into politics with their influence even though they are not eligible.

But On the other hand we must not argue that educational is the only thing that will make the man to become a great leader because we have quiet a bunch of some great leaders like Abraham Lincoln who doesn't do well at education but remains as one of the prominent leaders in the world history.

But these are somewhat lesser cases we usually see. I conclude that education may be one of the measures that makes a good leader, but it is not the only measure that we have to consider for a person to be great leader.

So I think education should not be essential for political leadership if it so there are many gifted leader who will be deprived to serve the nation or mankind with their generous skills.

Hello everyone,

I m really glad to speak on this topic.

Well according to my point of view Educational qualification is very much essential for politician, our countries development are on the hands of politicians and only an educated politician can handle it in an efficient way. Well there is a saying "The Leaders of today are the future of tomorrow" and yes it is true and it makes perfect sense. We make them the leader of our country so that our country can get rid from all kinds of social, economical and political problems.

I am not saying that less educated person can't handle this kind of problems, they can and it is being done by leader like Mr. Narendra Modi ji but my opinion in this topic is that these kind of problems which our country is facing right now can be solved by more educated leaders in a better and most efficient way.

If we compare our country with other foreign countries like USA, Japan. Etc we can see a lot of difference in their countries development, economy and civilization. Those countries are far ahead from us in all these factors so what is the reason behind their success?

The main reason is that their Leaders are much more educated and they have the strong desire to Serve for their Nation. Our country's leaders should also do the same and it is the best time to do it.

Only an educated person makes the best use of knowledge.

If a person is not educated then he may not know to handle certain things like Social, economic or political problems of our country while in the other case educated person knows better to handle all this sorts of problem.

If we compare our country with countries like USA or Germany, etc. we can see the difference that our country people are much more illiterate than other countries. It is because of some of our country's politicians are uneducated and are not taking things seriously which results in problems like poverty, Unemployment, Illiteracy, etc.

In my opinion educational qualification for politicians is must. Only an educated person can think extensively and with an open mind. Knowledge is power, it opens up your mind and only an open minded and educated person can understand and lead a country which has so much of diversity and where so many religions co-exist in the right direction.

For exp. Mahatma Gandhi, father of our nation a law graduate was a great leader and led India to its independence just because he was educated enough to lead the country in the right direction. Jawahar Lal Nehru, Vallabhbhai Patel, B.R. Ambedkar are just a few examples among many others who were great leaders and well educated people.

In my opinion bringing in the educational qualification criteria for contesting in election is a really good measure from the state governments (gujarat, rajasthan).

But before implementing we should check into the reality ie. Whats the percentage of educated rural people in these areas. More than 80% of rural people overall and 95% of rural women especially gets their exit pass with this move. They cannot contest in elections since they are deprived of basic elementary education. So gov should facilitate for improving the reach of the elementary and adult education in order to raise the standards of our future politicians.

In developed nations, politicians are professionals. But here many take politics as profession. And so comes the corruption.

Hi friends.

According to me education(degree) should not be mandatory to the leader. Till now we have a lot of great leaders in them few of them were not educated but they know how to rule how to be a good leader. For eg a poor boy wants to study but due to his financial problems he can't even he may have a leadership qualities. So in my point of view every leader should have a knowledge about the country about history, social awareness and all.

Even if he does not have degree also its ok but he must have a knowledge about evry thng. A procedure should be der in such a way that.

1. Exam should be held to test his knowledge.
2. Interview to check his leadership qualities and few more things should be added.

According to my opinion education is a viable and most important aspect in our current world scenario. We look upon the politician as an able person who can guide us and make proper and appropriate decisions.

Most people prefer the politicians to be as their role model. But if the politicians do not have proper academic background what impact will it be on the state because it will bring a downfall in literacy rate as most of the people will have thoughts of education as an unnecessary subject.

Apart from that if a politician doesn't have an idea of economy and knowledge about the key aspects where to bring development then what is the use of such politician?
