In my point of you education is most important for politician why because education persons known the every matter for truly and if any problems comes these type of persons to easy solve and based on peoples.

They are promised in elections so that promised can be implemented but noneducational persons they do not known how to implement that and no idea also so educational qualification is most important to us also.

In my opinion educational qualification should not be essential for politicians because politicians are one who have to manage the country. They basically require good managerial skills, leadership skills, communication skills and good decision making power. Those person who have the above skills can prove to be a good politicians.

India is developing country. Not all the people are fully educated. So instead of searching for educated people, we can choose those person as our politician who have required skills.

It is not possible that the person who is educated can govern the country well. The good politician is one who have the right skills.

Yes, I agree with the statement that we should have minimum academic qualification criteria for politicians like graduates or post graduate or now a days I heard of politics institutes which trained in political education, developing country like India should take this concrete step to robust their political system. We see unnecessary bad mouth spitting, allegation, casteism, secularism and communalism are the result of this current weak political system.

Education is a basic need for every person. If a political leader is not educated or very less educated he is can't take sensible decision for public and their welfare. Then he is also depended on someone to tell him what to do and what not to.

In my view, education plays a vital role in our daily life. Right from selling cigarettes to buying a car. You will end up paying more amount to buy a car which have less features compared to the other car model which has more features in low price, as you are not aware.

Anyone can fool you easily if you are not educated. A politician should be atleast a graduate. Suppose you open a new company and you require a manager at one of your office. Will you choose a 10th pas or a graduate? answer is graduate. So how can we leave the country in hands of a metric pass person or a less educated politician?

An educated mind is a healthy mind, and a healthy mind can also govern in a healthy way. Educated person is able to think logically and can also differentiate between the rights and wrong which is necessary in politics.

How can you just give your country in the hands of a person who doesn't know how to handle himself/herself? It is not that the person should be highly qualified but there should be the minimum qualification obtained by him/her.

Yes, in my opinion it is all required to have an educational qualification for the politician. I do not think it should be minimum or maximum. Education is the basic which every common people should have.

If Person is educated then he/she has broad mind to think, knowledge of technology, innovative ideas, good vision for future, determination and scenarios. In addition to this, the person should be honest, patriot and devoted to the country.

I think that there should be minimum educational qualification for politicians. But he should not be the one who has spend most of the time in getting the degrees and bookish education.

Rather than education he should have wisdom. Education may come from books. But wisdom comes from experience. Politician is a ruler and who takes the decisions based on the inputs and opinions given by the more educated people in his office.

It is important that he has a strategic mind and the right information regarding the ambit of his activities.

The great leader like King Shivaji Maharaj didn't had the formal education. But his governance earned him an indelible impression on the minds of the people. Till today, his management skills are studied in various management colleges and various books are written on his managerial skills. This happened because he exactly knew what the people wanted.

I think a politician should be first sensible, aware, mature, firm, experienced and then well educated to run the country.

My thinking is Education Qualification is compulsory for all politician because uneducated politics member there is no think about how to grow our society how to grow our India and uneducated politics is big disadvantage is it has no confidence level it has no good communication skills.

But educated person has more confidence level and communication skills is better than uneducated politics member. And is thinking is also better than uneducated politics.

Hello everyone,

I am Vivek, and according to my point of view a political leader must have educational qualification. Because, now world has been globalised and many nations are already developed but we are still a developing nation. Now we need to resolve our internal problems and issues as well as we need to make good relation with the other nation. If other nations are making progress in every field like technology, business, agriculture etc. Then why don't we make progress with them? If they are exploring their market in other countries then why don't we? Today technology is advanced very much and been used in every field.

Our political leaders are face of our country, they can bring development along with pride to our nation. Therefore, there must be educational qualification for politicians.

First of all, I would like to appreciate the wordings of all the members who took part in presenting their views regarding political leaders.

In my opinion, education itself is the base to be aware of each and everything related to any aspects of life. The maximum level of education required to every politician is Masters so that they come to know that how to run the country, how to deal the nations, how to make the country stronger, how to bring peace and satisfaction.

In conclusion, education can not be denied. However, it is to be preferred as we prefer daily meal to be alive.

In other side criticize can come that few political leaders are doing well even they don't have proper level of education, but this theory may not run in every case, there must be a certain quality for a leader, in our country it is not so hard to get qualified for politician if you have public support, but still we need to think about it.

Our country is like a family and our leaders are our head of the family, if they are not educated then how they will control and give guidance to our country.

We take education not to take degrees but to learn some moral values and can take good decisions. So running any country successfully our politicians must be educated so that they can understand current scenario and can deal there problem efficiently.

From my side, it is mandatory for the every politician to have minimum qualifications, that may be graduation level or master degree. Because it was the old time when if the politician is not well educated, we say that its ok as the leader has the capability to lead the people.

But now a days as literacy percentages increase day by day the politician should have minimum educational qualification, otherwise he or she can't understand the present world situation, the technical demand of people besides their basic needs.

Many times it is happen that most of the meritorious student involve themselves in the public sector job and common level students leads our nation. From my side the student have the ability to think for the nation should come forward for the development of our nation.

Before going to the conclusion. Let me ask you a question. Can anybody tell me what does education really mean? If the person is highly qualified and doesn't know how to manage his home how can you say that he is better than a person who is not well qualified. I know that the basic qualification is necessary but you can not judge the person only on single basis that is he /she is qualified or not.

Because management, awareness, sensitivity towards people, leadership, honesty towards his/her work are also some of the major qualities required to become the leader of the democratic nation that is INDIA.

I don't believe that education is necessary for a person to be a good politician. Instead of being educated you need to be a knowledgeable, Knowledge is not going to come form book. It comes from moral values.

Let's take an example nowadays kinds even operating a computer for the fun purpose so the thing is that they don't even study about it, but then know how to operates it and if we talk about a few decades ago the normal people don't knows about it.

So the thing is that if you have to do something you don't need to be educated, you need to be more knowledgeable. If I start giving an example of ordinary person like Sachin Tendulkar they are not educated they have the skills.

Hello friends,

I think education for politicians should be mandatory. It was old times when not being educated was cool or we can say it did not matter, and hence the leader elected with no qualifications was ok. But today with growing percentage of literary we can't expect the leader to be an uneducated as he might not understand what is the need of the hour and very important he might not be able to give what we require.

Besides, a leader is a role model for hundred of thousands and him being illiterate do not project a good picture of the society.

In my point of view education is the basic necessity of a person. In this present era, a person without education is treated as nothing. As every field have some qualification to be a part of it, politicians who lead the nation or a country ought to be educated for the betterment of the society. Even then some politicians led the nation successfully, there are some whose decision might go wrong at sometimes costing welfare of the society.

Now everything being digitalised and technology has improved a lot, they must be updated so as to improve the growth of nation. Mere experience can make them handle the problems, but can't solve them with appropriate decisions. So experience with minimum qualification of education is necessary for a person to be an efficient politician.

Constitution provides equality to everyone, irrespective of the background where a person comes from. Art 14 of our constitution mandates no person be discriminated, no matter what the circumstances be concerning the main issue that whether there be any educational criteria to approve of a candidature.

My input is that such a clause is void, in regard to the rights enshrined by our constitution, also morally to the fact that no person can deprive me of such a right which is not unlawful, and by 'unlawful' I mean the act which harms the whole community.

If there be a clause regarding education qualification, such clause would deprive the uneducated people of their right to stand in election and Article 14 of constitution provides equality.

It is the common ability to sense the right and the wrong. It includes so many aspects starting from the manners to sit, to the way you speak or dress up. An illiterate person will not even know where to sign a paper.

When the constitution makers wrote our constitution, they did not put any clause regarding educational qualification for people for a good reason. It was because the leadership qualities of a person cannot be judged by how much a person has studied. It depends on the work he does for his constituency and and his decision making capabilities.

If an educational qualification is made mandatory, it will forbid people from remote areas of our country who have worked a lot for their society but could not make it to a school due to some reason. Knowledge can also be earned through experience but we don't have a formal degree for that.

An argument is often put forth that an illiterate person make a sound judgement. Let's be honest, even after having a bachelor's degree, we cannot be sure of the decisions we make. Politicians have groups of academics to give their suggestions and with the help of his/her own experiences, he/she can take decisions.

Also, intentions of a person are more important than his qualifications. Even if a person is well educated, he can still indulge in corruption.

In this era education is very important for everyone. Politicians are those people who are chosen by crores of people to run a country. In this era a uneducated person is not able to handle himself he had to take help of others he is actually a dependent person in many of his works. So do you think that a uneducated person who is not able to handle himself can handle a country of crore of people.

So there must be a minimum qualification for politician because these people have the life of crore of people.

Yeah, in my point of view education is needed for politicians. Then only a bright future rise. I repeat in my point view there is something going bad between protocols. For eg. The Bureaucrats well qualified well disciplined but in some special occasions they should have to bide to obey the illiterate uneducated leaders I was watching since my first news watch. So education is the best wealth in the planet than anything.

Hello friends.

My name is Harshada Khopade.

According to me for any growing nation education is most important aspect in all terms. Politician should be with higher education because many leadership attributes are gained through education. Leader with no education can not cope up with the change hence it hinders country development.

Education qualification is necessary to be a leader to develop a nation in my point of view education is essential in politician qualification because he/she is the one who owns the responsibility to take decision.

The politician should have minimum educational qualification and must have good knowledge because knowledge gives right decision and development of nation is possible. Educated politician will also think about other people.

Hello friends,

This is a good topic for discussion. According to my view, as we know that education is more important for all the people even thought politician. With out education we are same like as a frog in the well, take a example if we want to become a software engineer we have to complete some degrees, same as if any one want to become politician, government have to make some rule to pass that degree. Because our whole life and our country development is totally in hand of politician. So our politician should have educated.

Hello everyone.

Education is good for everyone, but its good when you utilize it in a correct way. For all the politicians education should be made mandatory. Best results could come out making the nation as well as the people using advanced technologies. Eg - The concept of bullet train in India. The PM has took the initiative to make India sophisticated and lead to better development.

Even without a qualification the politician in earlier times ruled with a correct judgement in all aspects and all were in favour not against it. So whoever is appointed, he/she must have a good knowledge of judgement, correct utilization of powers and a support from public.

Hello friends.

Me Kratika Gupta.

According to me education give us the ability to explore our idea's, increases our knowledge and enhance our thoughts towards society and people. Hence if our leaders are educated then they can innovate their ideas more and can implement programs more efficiently, which can provide a high rate of growth to our country.

So there should be a minimum level of educational qualification should be mandatory for getting a ticket and take part in election as a "leader". Because a leader by winning election becomes a minister or MP OR MLA he/she has to run a "Administration", to run it efficiently he/she must have good knowledge of administration and also have faith and knowledge of our constitution.

So I think there should be a kind of skill testing exam should be held for politician so that their thinking toward citizen of India, thoughts for the growth, and idea's and the must skill that is "" LEADER SHIP "" skill should be tested. Most important thing is the skill testing exam must be transparent.

Thank you.

Education is most important in our life so our parent spend lot of money for their children's education. Education is a basic need in human life like home, food etc because the world is moving towards digital world so if want to see our self in this world we need education. Now we comes to point education qualification of politicians, if a normal person can not live his life without education so how can they, they are our leader they should be well educated.

Education gives a wide and deep understanding of any issue of a human life. But one point is important that we can not define one's behavior by his educational qualification. So I think there should a minimum qualification criteria for politicians they represent our country in the world and for good representation and good growth can be done by a good education.

Hello everyone.

I am Biswajit and I have some opinion over this topic. I think that politicians should have a well and educated mind regarding about our government rules and regulations like democracy systems. So for a well and good politicians, a higher degree certificate isn't necessary because if we implement this rule then a politicians can buy it from a well reputed colleges or institutions as like buying vegetables in the vendor shop which the left hand game of some notorious politicians not for others.

On the other hand we can also say that there is no criteria to scrutinize them on the basis of the Government rules, democracy system like etc. So for this, people must be beware for this our politics and this is in their hand.

Hey guys.

Well coming to qualification of a politician, A politician plays a role of a normal citizen plus a politician. He/she must be qualified in order to provide the best knowledge to the nation that could help them to protect the people from other greats. We can take the example of APJ Abdul Kalam being the ex president of India, he played the role of both being a normal citizen understanding the problems of the people and a scientist i.e. missile man providing the nation with hi tech technology. This not only helped our nation to withstand with other well armored nations but also gave a great contribution to the youth.

Even in olden days where the education is not given much importance the kings used to rule with good educational qualification. Where as now it is much more important to get educated.

As a leading representative to some lakhs of people he/she should be educated. Now a days the uneducated politicians are appointing the personal managers with very high educational qualification to help them. It was also good to some extent but the appointed person may have the chance to wrongly utilize the power of the politician.

Education is very important for politicians because we can't hold the state or country in the hands of uneducated people. This may stop the growth of a country by taking improper decision made by politician.

For Ex : In Loksabha or Rajyasabha we see the politician shouting like anything for passing their bill and also throwing shoes on each other which are sign of uneducated people. So, for the growth of country politicians should be educated.

Hi friends. From my point of view there is non need of degree for politicians. Because if we talk about their degree so they can buy it from any institution. So there is no need of degree. I support only how the leader take efficient decision in any time of instance. So that leaders have more experience about their field.

Basically degree shows how you alter yourself from studies. But the real fact behind the good leaders is having more knowledge about his field. If they have more knowledge about their field. So they can do any type of work in any type of hardly situations. However I want to support the experience not need of degree.

In my opinion there should be an educational referendum for the politicians as it will not only help them in understanding the situation better but as well as it will make them disciplined which I think has become necessary seeking on various events like one in up parliament.

Overall, if a leader is educated then it will form a clean image in front of the people of the country and people will try to take part in the politics actively and the young leaders with well education could come up in front and make politics clean, holy and work oriented rather than caste oriented.

Kind of higher degrees is not required for the politicians from the incident times. The politicians are coming from various background, it may be family tradition or their willingness inspires themselves. A man need to be very careful about the situations he is passing through.

So to handle any situation the experience is enough, there should not be any higher or lower degrees. So it can be say that he must be educated as much that could help him not to stop in his way of politics, but he does not require very much degrees.

Hello everyone,

I want a add a point to the above discussion is that, every politician should not be a degree holder because if we ask them for degree they buy it from the institutions for them it is like buying vegetables from the market.

They should have a basic knowledge about the government system for what it was meant for and what are the main objectives of govt while contributing to the development of the country.

Final conclusion I want to give is that instead of asking for degree they need to test the ability of the competing politician. And I think it won't happen in INDIA, because politics is a business. I hope for the change in coming years.

For this every politicians should posses good education and knowledge to govern and lead people correctly. Moreover the world is changing very fast and if they are not equip with knowledge their principle or philosophies will lead to bad governance.

As per the topic I truly believe that politicians should be selected on the basis of their qualification. A IAS officer is selected after a lot of hard work and on the basis of intelligence and at last they have to work under those people who hardly have passed their schools which is injustice to the talented people of our country who works so hard to get a good job but some uneducated politicians of our country dot bother of the development but instead looks for some shortcut way to make a money this is why corruption poverty is increasing day by day we need good government consisting of educated people and with good legislative laws.

Non-Educated politicians are main obstruction to our country's development. Government must take the step in terms of politicians education. Our politicians should have the master degree related to the field for which they are appointing. Education helps us to think out of the box, practically and very important how we can utilize our available resources.

Our politicians always depends on others opinion to take any action. Even, they don't know about their rights and responsibilities as well. So, I am not able to understand that why they come in politics, if they don't know anything about our country. They come just to earn lots of money, by hook or by crook.

In conclusion, I will just say our politicians must be educated to take the necessary steps and actions for our country and their citizens.

Presently even the security of the present politicians are mostly well qualified (IAS/IPS) and it is ignorant that these IPS/IAS officers are compelled to do whatever these politicians asks them to do, even dance to their tunes.

In ours esteem country India there is minimum qualification of 8th standard for a government Dustman but there is no educational qualification criteria for the most powerful persons of our country that is the politicians.

Many politician goes to the other countries for representing our nation but can't able to speak English properly.

I think education is all about necessity, which helps you to communicate your society. Our politician or our minister should have a degree that he can execute his idea broadly or more efficiency in development.

But I think nowadays politician growing up highly as a result many undeserved people are eating job from deserving people who are very hard worker. It is very easy way to become a politician weather you are criminal or 10th fail. I think we are the reason for this corruption and we change ourselves immediately instead of avoiding.
