Hello friends.

I think education is necessary but it not all that is required for politics. Education can give knowledge but not leadership. Education is required because it will help the politician to understand the problem in better way and also to solve it in more scientific manner.

Hey everyone, this is Ayush.

As per my view. A politician must be qualified or have a ample of knowledge. At least in the sector he is working in like if a person is finance minister then he must be knowing economics. And same for every sector.

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.

As my point of view, once upon a time India has a many uneducated leader. But they have a responsibility of our nation. The leads the people in correct way. They don't like corruption of our nation.

Now a days political leaders have a educational qualification. Someone try to lead our country in correct way. I think politicians does not need only education and also they have responsibility of our nation.

Hello everybody, I am Kishore Duggirala.

A politician should be atleast literate. In my point of view I can say that education is not necessary for politician because he can fulfill the works when he get experience in that profession.

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.

Hai friends.

Education is important not only in politics but also in the way we take decisions in day to day life. Because India is a developing country. We need to compete with foreign countries in many areas. 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.

Hello all,

I am Nur Alam and I would like to share my opinion in this regards, in all the developing countries like ours population are not literate more than 70% even it may be we are not graduate more than 40%. 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. Political leadership must have management skills but not education. If he or she a good manager he would be able to manage his all kind of burden.

First of all I very glad to speak about this topic.

With due respect, I'm Mohammad Aamir, wants to put my reason on this topic, according to me.

Every Indian have capability to serve their country but we all need a good leader whether he is educated or not. But I prefer the leader should be educated if he does have good qualification but he leading the country good then no problem we need only good governance we don't need degree.

But some minister like HRD minister or Foreign Minister or Finance Minister. Etc they all have some good education because he need to talk many aspect related to country if he not educated how he will manages. So some position in the ministry must be educated.

Unqualified person is also have good management ability. Whether all of your parents have good qualification. How they guided you think of it. They learned from their own experience.

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.

Thank you.

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.

Only a educated person can solve this kind of problems in a better way and he can change the face of our country.

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?

Hi everyone,

According to my viewpoint, education should be must for any politician. Because educating oneself is the only way which makes a person complete in any respect. So far as leading a state or a country at a large is concerned, it becomes immense necessary at first for a politician to know well about the development and economy of his country and after that necessary steps be taken for improvement which may also include some of the success procedures that may be following in some other developed countries also.

This is possible only through proper education. Hence it is only possible for a politician to create or understand some developing tools, only if he is itself sufficiently knowledgeable to apply them so, or to develop some new ones based on the comfort of his country people.

Also education maintains the standard of a person in a society and hence in most of the situation a well and a knowledgeable politician will always try to face some of the country's severe condition positively and to rectify the same using his best knowledge and effort for the up-liftment of our country.

Our India needs all politician just like Narendra Modi who have enough educational qualification and ability to understand country men's problem, who is a good speaker, who is hard working!

Most of our politicians have even not passed their matriculation or the bachelors degree but are ruling the whole affairs of our country.

Many politician distributes important cabinets according to their specialization in their studies, saying finance minister, who decide budget of the country keep the interest of poor people in mind by providing them subsidies and levying high taxes on higher earned income people for bridging the gap of poor and rich people which is really required to eradicate corruption.

If the gap diminished between poor and rich then they start treat equally then there is no need of giving bribe which kill corruption in our country.

Politicians, as per the constitution, are those people who are chosen by the citizens as their leader. A politicians should have following qualities:

1. He should have a understanding nature.
2. He should be attached to masses.
3. He should be a visionary man.
4. He should remain unbiased.
5. He should has decision making capability.
6. He should be attached to his roots.
7. He should be a nationalist etc.

Hi everyone.

According to my point of view, politician must having an education. Because without the skill he could not have the ability to rule the people. Now a days lot of problems occur due to the corruption, accidents, etc. Without the knowledge skill no one could rule the country only with having the leadership quality. Finally I concluded that politician should have proper education.

Thank you.

Hello friends, I am Chaitanya Shinde.

Education is needed for every politician as we learnt in politics we know that what is election about. If the ruler did not do anything till our expectations we will not vote. So a ruler needs education and he knows that if we do anything which the people has some expectations if we do that thing they will vote to us.

In democracy there is no much importance to education especially for political leaders. They are not selected on the basis of their qualification nor for any scientific breakthrough etc. But a politician can gain ground if he/she commits to social development and welfare activities as our democracy is centric to people of India like wise an Indian politician must be centric to the people of India.

What I opines is a politician must possess basic qualification upto PG in which it covers all about Indian history, geography politics. Good communication skills both in Hindi and English. A strong desire to do something for the national development.

Hello friends, I am delighted to share my views on this topic. First of all, we should know the difference between education and wisdom. I have come across many educated persons who are lacking first hand practical ground experience in politics. If such educated persons enter active politics how can they solve common man"s problems. And so far wisdom is concerned, it is not imparted in any university.

It only can be learned by God's grace and self experience. As one of the most successful persons of their time, Einstien (Great inventor of Atom Bomb) was a school dropout as a naughty child. And even Henry Ford was a school dropout. But both were the most renowned personalities of their time. To be a good politician it is not necessary to be highly educated person.

Having basic qualification and if you are able to communicate with common man in their language and having real practical experience in helping them by solving their problems, it is enough. To be a good politician, you should possess: Motivation, determination and commitment. Excellent communication skills and public speaking ability.

Problem solving ability. The ability to work under pressure. Taking right decision at right time. Having an urge to serve the community without expecting any rewards.

Hello friends.

Firstly I want to add that this not necessary that only educated people can be a good politician.

People with less education and with high forecasting can be a good leader. But the negative effect for that is the people with bad personalities also get the chance to have their own benefit which we are looking in today's society. So to make our society free from all types of problems we must make education as important part of qualification for politician and good record people only participate in the politics.

Hello everyone.

The structure that I would like to propose for this GD is: Firstly, how educated politicians have affected the economy at par with the uneducated politicians in the past. Next we can discuss about how leadership of an individual can be linked with his education. Also, finally we can talk about the current scenario where we can discuss whether educated politicians are really creating an impact on society and economy.

In the past, we had highly educated politicians like Dr.B.R.Ambedkar and Dr. S.Radhakrishnan who shaped the country's future with their unprecedented efforts and several initiatives. Education is not only meant for gaining knowledge in different fields, but it also develops a personality as a whole which is very important for a politician to succeed in his life.

Coming to my next point, I would say that leadership skills becomes strong through different experiences that a person has had in his life. In order to be a good leader, an individual has to become confident in what he/she is doing.

With education, comes these opportunities where you have a chance to nurture your leadership skills may it be by becoming a house captain in school days or a college president while pursuing higher education.

A good debater in a college has a high chances of success if he steps into politics but those bright students are demotivated to enter into politics as one needs to have strong contacts in order to get into politics.

Finally, in the present scenario, we have politicians like Dr. Manmohan Singh and Manohar Parrikar who are known for their educational qualifications and have been good politicians (I am talking about Dr. Singh's work when he was a finance minister) There are also politicians like Rabri Devi have not even completed their secondary education and the general public is aware of the corruption charges their her family has.

So, in short I would like to conclude by saying that a minimum level of education, say bachelors, should be must for a person to participate in elections as a candidate.

As per my opinion politicians should be educated because now a days most of the politician are totally depends on their secretary for their work such as speech decision making etc. Its not fair at all. The person who comes in politics without any knowledge of politics he is just come for earning money nothing else's.

As politician is educated he manage all the thing in systematical way. He will decide his goal for country and try to achieve it with efficiency and before or on time. See guys in our country if you want to become an peon also you need a qualification of minimum 10 or 10+. If peon require qualification of 10 or 10+ so why politicians not.

I think politician is at the top and peon at the bottom of our working section. If lower division require qualification of minimum 10, so politician must be graduated or post graduated. He manage all the people from class1 to class4. If he manage all educated person so he must be educated otherwise it will be injustice with educated person who works under him.

The reason that this topic is being thoroughly discussed is that the educated folks are certainly not satisfied by the modus operandi that our politicians follow in the discharge of their duties.

Well, if I were to speak my mind, neither the education nor academic qualification describe a competent leader.

The politicians today are corrupt beyond recognition and the only reason for this treason on our society is their 'greed' otherwise known as 'cupidity'. This factor is inherent in all the individuals, of course, in different composition. The experience or academic honors cannot remove this. It's like getting blood out of stone.

So, what should really be the criteria for selecting a political leader should be his alacrity in uplifting the society and this must be apparent from his actions even if there is no media coverage.

Education or experience is not sufficient because we all have experienced in our own lives that if we are interested in some issue or venture, we are able to jazz it up even when we are not from the similar field. Example - a farmer can give a valuable and workable solution to his son who is an IAS.

So what I tried to stress upon by the above example is that if a person is determined to uplift the society, he by virtue of his willpower, will find one way or the other.

On the other hand, if a politician is apathetic to public demands, he fails to execute the most bankable solution that is there on his table.

Leadership is all about vision and action.

In my view educational qualification is not much important for Politicians. The politician should know about the the problems which are facing by people and should put great efforts for solving them. Politicians are to serve people. For example mother Teresa serves people a lot. It's due to her big heart but not due to her educational qualification. Politicians should have great heart like her than educational qualification.

But by having educational qualification, the thoughts or ideas for solving a problem will be good and sophisticated.

Finally I want to said that if a politician have great heart to serve people, it will be good. If he has educational qualification also, it will be more good.

My conclusion is in both way education is necessary but not mandatory, a perfect leader doesn't requires book knowledge he owned a practical knowledge by birth, example is our country emperor the king Akbar is illiterate even he doesn't know how to read and write but now a days we all are reading about him in history.
