In my point of view the politicians must be brave and they should take decisions with intelligence. They must know about people behavior and they know how to approach the people and solving their problems. For every govt job there should be some educational qualification and they are conducting exams to know about person knowledge and he is suitable for the profession or not.

For example IAS officers should qualify the civils exams to lead districts, so to lead our state or etc they must be knowledgeable and they also have some exams to enter into politics then only it should be very difficult to enter into politics.

Hello everyone.

I think educational qualification must in should thing in the politics. Because now a days maximum number of leaders are completely depend upon their personal secretaries. This is not at all fair. In my point of view those people who are coming into the politics without any knowledge regarding the particular service category, they just come with an interest to earn enough money to survive further life joyfully.

They don't apt for doing service for the people in society. If suppose an educational person is in politics, he can manage everything better than the candidates for whom we discussed earlier. What I mean to say is, all the officers. From Grade-4 to gazetted officers should have minimum educational qualification, they why don't political leaders need not to have educational qualifications.

Being literate and being educationally qualified are two completely different aspects which should be kept in mind. Leaders should be literate but holding any certificate should not be a compulsion. Lawfully abiding by their duties requires wisdom and not some piece of educational proof.

In my opinion education is Important to every politician, to develop our nation it plays major role, now a days most of the politicians they don't even know how to read a newspaper but they represent our country. As educated mom plays major in making child's future brighter, so as educated politician makes our country brighter.

Hi. I would like to conclude that politicians must have minimum qualification in education. Because education gives us analytical thinking power and ability to tackle with the situation. It will give every basic thing to improve oneself. Some of our politicians were not educated but they did well but the scenario of present completely changed due to globalization. Right now every politician has to know about how the country is functioning. For this minimum qualification is required.

Thank you.

Such a good question asked and am glad to answer for that. Definitely it should be must that all the political positions should be honoured by conducting exams. A person having good economical knowledge can understand the ups and downs of the country economy and also can able to make a good solution to overcome those. It would be very interesting and there would be a very great change in the country if it happens. Thank you for having a chance to register my answer.

Hai friends.

Educated persons are performing criminal ideas in a correct way. Now a days a politician should be qualified and we know sir Kamaraj was not educated well but he leaded well. According to my concept not only higher education is needed, but also they should have enough experience knowledge.

With experience they should know to learn people not to learn criminal ideas.

Hello friends,

As I think it is not necessary for a politician to be highly educated but I have a better idea "internship programme for politicians" in which they work under experienced politicians and get the knowledge about how to handle situations, how to solve problems of common man, how to take action irrespective of strong opposition. So when they become a leader, they know what do they have to do and how to do that.

Hello all,

Politics as any other field is a prime important field which gives direction and leads to development of the country. In my opinion its imperative for any person to be educated to get into politics. The reason why I say this is.

1. To understand different and difficult situations people face and to provide solutions you would need basic education and know how.

2. To speak in public with confidence and to be able to hold audience, politician needs to have knowledge and to impart knowledge through good delivery skills a good sound basic education is a must.

3. There will be situations where a politician needs to take decision on the spur of moment, only education can help him take bold decisions which will help develop the country.

4. If he is educated he will not be dependant on others for seeking resolution on difficlut subject. He can look at different angles on the issue and come with a solution which is beneficial to majority of masses.

Im sure there are many more benefits of an educated politician which I have not listed however the message is loud and clear. To be a good politician, education is a must !

I would like to say that politician is a key to run our nation if he would have all the qualities so he will able to work accordingly. It is not mandatory that politician should have the educational qualification much but still if he would have, it would be better.

Lets think that if we were politician so whats the common people want from us such as hunger to serve the nation, he should not have any criminal records, how to take the action on serious topics of nation, proper understanding or communicating behaviour with the common people, he should not be corrupted, he should have the capacity to tackle in different situations.

Apart from caste, money WE should think about Leader's Qualities how they handled problems efficiently in previous manner in public life and their interactions with public issue everything we have to note it.

Hello everyone.

There are so many questions arises about the educational qualification of politician is it necessary or not. Another question arise that if no need of qualification for politician then why we are study a lot. According to me basic education should be there, a person should be of good understanding to handle the country or state matters. There are so many entrance test if we are going to take admission in any reputed college/university even we have to just take educational qualification or degree then why not the test held for leader for politicians who have huge burden of society or country.

They have to do a big job. Rather if we said that education is not necessary because education does not make a men wise rather experience and how to handle the problem matters a lot. But in this era no one easily rely on any uneducated person so the basic education is very necessary. A politician must have ability to understand situations and the problems of people, the main work of a politician is to serve the nation, he should not of guilty mind and for the sake of to earn money by this way or Not have any criminal records with no corruption if he did not get any educational qualification.

According to my knowledge education is not a representation of a human being. It improves the personality of mind and heart. And so I think its not so important for a political leader to be educated by books he may be educated by his life and society. The main act of the leader is to understand the problem of the people and have a knowledge of developing the country by handling all the sectors and officials.

But we should strongly oppose the candidates with criminal background and no knowledge of politics.

A politician is our leader whom we select to represent our region, our state or our country. He should we honest, bold to take actions in critical situations, unbiased. And I don't think any educational system works on moulding students according to these qualities. Educational institutes may make student literate but not educated.

I personally feel that its not very necessary for ministers to be have an educational degree. Ms. Indira Gandhi was not a graduate but she is one of the best prime minister India ever got. Rajiv Gandhi was also not a graduate but he was an able leader. Degree doesn't make a leader.

Hello everyone,

The main role of politician is to serve the nation and do do we need any degree or qualification to serve our society or nation ?

Certainly not !

We all are the people of this nation and anyone can raise their hand to serve irrespective of their caste, creed, qualification or religion.

Politician should have qualities like :

1> Ability to understand situations and the problems of people.
2> Ability to take strong decisions irrespective of opposition.
3> Hunger to serve the nation.
4> Ideas to develop.
5> No criminal records with no corruption.

And many more.

But all these qualities require vision, determination rather than qualification.

If a leader is educated its good but there are much more important qualities he must have like humbleness, reach to people, no criminal records, no to corruption and should have moral values.

So to conclude, its good for a politician to have degree and other qualifications but it should not be made mandatory.

In my opinion it is not necessary that a leader should have higher level educational qualification but he should have basic knowledge to understand the current affairs, to solve the problems of peoples. A leader should be kind, should be experienced, should have leadership qualities, good decision making abilities, should be a good planner, should have ideas for development of country. We have various examples of great peoples who have not good qualification like bill gates, abraham lincoln, henry ford but they are most powerful motivation of peoples.

I am not saying that education is a bad thing if our leader is educated it will be good but it is not necessary that a literate leader can understand the problems of our country.

But education is not only criteria because they are not running a organization they are running nation and many time an educated people can take decision so politician should be experienced also.

From my point of view no one can judge the person from their academic degree only. It is very necessary to have a lots of general knowledge about our country's economy, farmlands, social services, peoples primary needs, their secondary needs etc. To the person who wants to be a member of Indian politics. Also there is no any direct criteria which will measures the knowledge of candidate one who wants to join politics. The better way is we can set a criteria that every candidate should have a graduation degree. From that we can assure about their thinking capacity and proper decision making. Although not all educated politicians are capable to run our country. But it is always better to know a person by their education and experience.

The Politicians are advised by a well educated intellectual set of bureaucrats, the only thing they need is to take good/tough decisions that would be helpful in country's development.

The reason behind their qualification is that the world is in a way to become more advance day by day, new technologies are there and science is also in the way to develop rapidly, if the politician are not educated they will be completely ignorant about all of these development, so it is necessary to have education qualification along with good experience and knowledge.

So if the politicians has well educated then he/she can easily understand problem and making good decision by having an excellent thinking capabilities towards development of our nation.

And apart from education, proper experience is also necessary to take a decisions. Even for a government servant there will be a some set of qualifications, exams are conducted. So for politician also we must set some education qualification to start their service. Then only it will be more fruitful compared to the past situations.

Hello everyone.

In my point of view, education should be given preference after all it is such a big responsibility for governing a big democratic country like ours where people are denied for not being educated for working in firms, industry, administration jobs, then why not it must be made compulsory when a big position of governance one should has the qualification. I am not saying that he/she needs to be highly qualified but should be graduate at least. The field in which the minister has to work include his/her education also because he/she has many civil servants working under him/her and if the person above you is not so qualified how can you think they have respect for you.

They if not so good person can easily manipulate and what will be the use of your being in the government if you can not take good decision. You role shall be like a rubber-stamp only then. Then what shall be the use of you being in the government if you cannot contribute from your side. So what I feel that minister should be educated with minimum qualification of graduation level.

From my point of view our politicians should have minimum graduate qualification because if the person who handle the our country he has not basic knowledge about what is right and what is wrong then how can he face our country basic problems. In education mostly the same are teach. In my point one education can do better work than one uneducated person. Hence, there should be minimum education qualification in our politicians.

I think that a man who wants to become a politician must study at least 10th standard. It is very necessary for him to know about our country and economic status of our country. By knowing all these about our country he could administer the state or particular region in a right way. Especially in villages and municipalities majority of the politicians are illiterates.

This condition should be changed immediately. If the individual is educated he knows the rights and responsibilities of the citizens in our country. By this there is a chance for a good administration. And the main thing is a politician should not be corrupted at any situation. This is our responsibility too, to elect the good leader without selfishness and caste feeling. Thank You.

Hi All,

I think education is important whether it came from experience or it is academic. No one should write off a person just because he does not hold a degree. It is not degree that makes a person, qualities like accepting and understanding a problem are important. For solving problems a leader can always have advisors who are experts in their fields.

An uneducated person heading a state or nation isn't just hysterical but shameful too. And unfortunately we have a gang of uneducated politicians in our country. As far as the level of education is concerned it depends from position to position. We obviously solicit a well qualified person heading the finance department because the work demands a person who is well aware and experienced to handle the economy of the country. Similarly the tribal affairs requires another set of qualities and the same person required in the former case may not be fit for the job. So the best option is to set a minimum standard for all politicians along with different set of standards for specific ministries.

I think a politician should be educated to the extend that whatever responsibility or post he/she has given in the government, he/she should be in a position to do their work consistently, efficiently, with the awareness of development of the country and its poor citizens. Because if at every point due to lack of knowledge if he needs help of others then that is not a good leadership.

We have so many examples of educated and uneducated politicians who have worked hard for the betterment of country. Even if I have stated that they should be educated but what I truly believe is if a politician really feels deep inside him about the development of country and good of the people then there is nothing else that can stop him/her.

In addition to the same thought I would say He/she will ultimately try their best to learn whatever they feel is necessary in their field of service to the nation. The most important thing is he/she should be a good human being who really cares about the country and its people.

Hi, I believe that education is very important for the politicians of the country. A well educated politician will be able to deal with an issue in a much better and a simpler manner. For example, A Finance minister without any prior knowledge in the same field would just be useless as he or she would just follow the obsolete system while on the other hand a well educated person would not only understand the system better but also use his or her knowledge to make that system more fruitful. An educated politician would be well aware of the deficiencies of the system and it is the knowledge and intellect of the politician which would help him remove them. A very educated leader would also set an example for his subordinates which would make them more zealous towards their work.

Hello friends in my view, for politicians, education may or may be important, but the important thing is that they must hear or understand the problem of common peoples. Mostly it can be seen that the politicians come to the common peoples during election time. Once the election is over they never come back to common people to hear their problems. No doubt education qualification add a plus point in the image of politicians but the experience in the politics and their honesty matter more than education. It is also important that the politicians must be enough qualified that they can read or understand the various bills and constitutional rights.

As we know that in politics there are many times some serious situation come when their is a need to take difficult steps and at that times the experience of politicians is matter more than education qualification because even a single wrong decision can how become it harmful no one can imagine. But when the politician is well qualified as well as well experienced then it is good both for common peoples and politicians. And at last I can say that the peoples like only that politicians who can understand and solve their problem and do work for their rights. It is also our moral duty that we can vote only right persons which can understand their problems.

Politicians should have one qualification that is humanity if it is present every politician will be successful. There is no rule that to be good one should be educated. Politicians should be good and follow the ideas of educated persons so that their region is developed.

According to me politicians must and should have discipline as they represent our country in many aspects rather than education.

Each and every person learns through experience so politicians should have experience.

You know that every child learn from his parents and behave like that so for a nation ministers are the parents or guardians of the country people so if he is good he/she guard in a good way and most of the people become literate. It will reduce poverty and unemployment like huge problem. If our leaders are strong and educated it has less chance of corruption, misguiding, manipulating or embezzlement, etc.

So in politics, education and age limit is essential for every politicians. Education gives experience through the books or internet and other sources.

Hello Friends,

My view about the education qualification for the politicians is must. India is a country where there are several kinds of literates and illiterates. Every politician should have certain educational qualification because the people one who rule us should be aware of all the things such as sanitary, health, cleanliness, environment, climatic conditions etc, so one does not know about such things if he is not educated oneself. One who is the head of the constituency is ordering the IAS and the IPS officers to do certain things. In my view this is not correct because the politician who is not well educated has no right to point out the educated.

As how we chose a good student who has good educational background to lead a company, then how far we should check out for a leader who has to lead the Nation!

We have seen many uneducated leaders who did a lot for our society, Mean time we have also seen many highly educated people who did nothing for our society. In my opinion education shouldn't be the only criteria for choosing our leaders.

If an uneducated person do wish to serve our country he shouldn't be denied his chance.

I believe that above all a politician should be able to know the people and their situations. Especially in a country like ours knowing the poorer sections of society and understanding their problem is really important. Many of our leaders from aristocratic family lags in this area. They should be given a chance to interact with these people and understand their problem. We do have leaders like modi who do really know people and their problems. But getting one like him is not that easy.

Also our great leaders like kalam ji do really know how we can emerge as a developed nation. He knows our real problems. He knows our hidden potential. People like him and his knowledge are really valuable.

So in my opinion people who wish to conduct in election should be given a training focusing on the above mentioned points. That is they should be given chances to be with poor people and to know their problems and should be given opportunities to attend classes from people like kalam ji.

After all now politics is the only field where people can enter simply without any training. This situation should be changed. I am not saying that politicians should have an engg or bsc or anything. But they should be aware of our nation and our real problems. Then only they can truly contribute to our society.

In fact there needs amendment or the special clause about the educational competency in our lex loci. Definitely our politician needs to be honest, moral and prospective with knowledge and understanding about the field where he going to work, the system, and the most important documentary of our Nation that is our Indian Constitution.

Because the Nation should nothing but the preface of Constitution. We are very lucky to have such a treasure of Written Constitution which not only mirrors Rights and Duties of citizen it also depict the whole sole practice or the prepared boundaries for perfect Nation.

Although our country have a very less literacy rate and to lead them the superior or the leader should must be an educated person. The leader have to attend so many conference in foreign countries and have to express himself in his own words, suppose that if the leader is less educated he/she couldn't speak even a word and could not understand the conference issues, so our leader must be and intellectual person.

His capacity and interested to work for others these qualities are required for the leader, if he/she doesn't have those qualities he can't become a good leader.

Politicians are god almighty of the country who determines the faith of everyone, they stir the whole country through their constitutional power, they are responsible for the growth or decline of the nation. If we want to growing nation then there is need to educated politicians in country who knows country's needs from toe to head, and it is possible through only education.

A illiterate politician can not touch the nerve of nation so he is not able to fulfill the country's needs.

For example I think you all know kamarajar he is not educated but he has a good future vision. He introduced many scheme in school education like free lunch, dress etc for school students.

Technological changes are required for any country to become developed and India need these changes because India is developing country and India required technological changes.

So for this purpose it is must that our politicians should be educated.
