Education is necessary for a leader, for the country's bright future and prosperity. As now a days it is the basic need of a person, but yes, it should not be fixed till a certain level.

A leader should be matured, experienced, kind, educated, and should understand peoples feelings, thinking, vision etc. And that all comes from education it self and our moral life.

Of course there should be a limitation of minimum qualification for politician. Yes it's right that it's all about experience and decision. But if you go for interviews of UPSC, NDA what they look in you is that how efficient you are in fast and correct decision making.

Similarly there should also a interviews round to check ability and capability for politician because they are going to handle our nation. If you observed, then you find that in each area there is corporate with 10th fail in our area, corporate was a riksha driver. He has only experience of blowing horn.

Yes a politician should be educated. An engineer, a doctor, a scientist. Any one can become politician. But in my view if educated politician doesn't know about our constitution, government system, laws, basic rules, etc. Then he also uneducated.

I want give good example for this. We all know Rajeevgandhi, our former PM. He was well educated, studied in UK. Even though he is well educated he did mistake due to lack of knowledge in politics. Mistake is he decreased minimum voting right from 21 age to 18. I think at 18 we are not aware of situations at present and whom to we vote and who can do good to country.

Hi everyone,

If a person can really work for the upliftment and betterment, has got excellent ideas for the growth and is truly committed towards bringing about a change in the country no matter how "educated" he/she is, in my views, deserves to take up the reins of the country.

I mean, common, let's face the truth, what good has the "educated" people done till now. We are still lagging far behind in comparison to other nations. And moreover, the actually educated people choose to stay out of politics.

And does this topic imply that all the people with PhDs and those passing out of IIT's and IIM's can actually lead our nation? If so, then we can have thousands eligible for taking part in politics.

For me education does not mean that person should acquired knowledge through formal way. There are lot of people who are not formally educated but they have profound knowledge of their work. They have immense knowledge of their field.

So if politician do not hold any degree, certificate but possess in depth knowledge of their area of work and know their role and responsibility and know how to serve the nation, then they are the best suited person for the job.

According to me the politicians should be educated. But education in what sense? Going to college and getting certificates is not the one, what I meant by education. Politician or leader should have better knowledge about the needs of the nation and the areas they are representing, and should have ability to find the solution of our needs.

They should have better knowledge, mindset. Some MP comment on rape case that women are equally participant on rape. This types of commentator like fire on that time. I think who is high in spirit in honesty and hard works, can change the image of the nation. They should have good qualities to serve people.

In case of corruption, educated and uneducated both are doing same. The perfect socialistic mind who wants to serve the people, who is broad minded, good qualities can be a good politician. So education is not about learning how to read and write, even though it is necessary, it is about how a person think and how it benefits for the society. So education is necessary.

But how we will come to know that some one is really educated? Leader must know what is right and what is wrong? Many a times we don't have this much of intelligence. Just knowing what is given in school or college books is not enough. He should must consult scriptures through some spiritual leaders. In past also our great Indian leaders have consulted scriptures like our MAHATAMA GANDHI, LAL BAHADUR SHASTRI, Dr.RAJENDRA PRASAD. Then one will become good leader. He should know what is the goal of his life and then of nation.

Goal should be very clear which is revealed only through scriptures modern education can only help us in fulfilling mind and senses not heart. Modern people are really hankering for full satisfaction which cannot be fulfilled through just bookish knowledge.

As a leading representative to some lakhs of people he/she should be educated.

And just because of that thing there mindset is not properly developed and this perhaps is becoming a barrier for nation's development.

There is a no educational qualification criteria mention in the constitution for a MP and MLA. But I think there should be a Entrance Exam for politicians which contains some puzzling, comprehensive, reasoning questions which gives them some senses to make comments on particular things.

For example some MP made a comment on rape case that women are equally participants in rape. This type of comments work like a fire at that time. So there must be educational qualification criteria.

According to me government should make it mandatory to have certain level of qualification to become a politician. After all a politician have to represents his country to everywhere, and for this he have to be well-known about his country and for this he need to be well educated.

Another way we can say that we are the flower of them, and if he is an uneducated man then other will also follow him which leads to a very bad situation.

As per my view politicians are representative of the country, and they are responsible for growth of the country. Today at the time of globalization each country is communicating with others country for mutual development and service.

So, to understand and implement the policy of other country the representative should have knowledge and ability to extrapolate the effect of police in the country. This can be done only by education. For example the education minister should have knowledge and ability to communicate whit other country's representative and ability to setup the collaboration program with top most university for betterment of their student.

Thank you.

According to me, education must be mandatory for all politicians. It is because politicians are one who play a major contributions to the development of nation. If he is well educated then he will be more efficient in generating more ideas, ways, management and many more. There should be specified education limit for each politician, so that he can give his best in that particular era.

For example, for education ministry if one is educated then he will be aware of various education field, its pitfall, lack and can implement the necessary solutions for it. It is only possible with open thoughts, self esteem and helps to leave behind the political thoughts which mostly harming the nation at most.

Education is very crucial for a politician because they have to govern the whole country. Also, there should be a prescription of minimum level of qualification for politicians of each department. As, when a politician is appointed for the department of Home Ministry, Human Resource Development, etc., he should have a sufficient knowledge of the subject, only then he would be able to administer his territory.

Hello friends,

In my point of view a politician should have knowledge, skill, courage and leadership qualities. These qualities can be easily acquired by an educated person. An uneducated needs to know well about country needs, desires and developments.

Becoming a politician is not about good or bad, his job is to serve the country make us proud. Politicians are also the ones who can make the world a better place to live in peace and prosperity. Being an educated or uneducated does not matter he needs to be good at what he does.

I think at least basic education is important for every politician. It is not necessarily that educated people can be a good politician and others cannot.

But without disrespecting anyone I'm saying that comparing their commanding power and their acceptability in front of the common people opens our eyes. But to be frank I have witnessed that many politician that starting from a councilor shivering while giving a signature during attestation.

So I feel basic education is important for all politician so that they do not set a bad example in front of their fellow citizens.

Its good that we all expect our politicians to be educated but we must understand that being a degree holder alone didn't make a person to be a good politician. For example in Tamil Nadu state, X Chief Minister Mr. Kamraj was not educated but his tenure was the best so far in that state.

So its all about how an individual is really willing to do social work without expecting any benefit in return.

Well I think yes. When we have educational qualification for a peon in this country then for politicians also it becomes desirable. Education enlightens a person. Opens ones mind to vast areas of knowledge, skills and efficiency.

If politicians are educated they will be able to better understand the country's current situation and requirement and their will be quick decision making, less chaos and more synchronization and system in the work.

The union government, bureaucracy, and judiciary all will be able to work in close cooperation. If ministries have greater and specialized knowledge of their respective field, then tendency of stalled projects will end. Economy will move at a greater pace.

I have a good solution for this discussion. I try to explain it. See we have started our education KG to PG. But once you step into a job suppose a bank job are a software. Their no one asks you what is (a+b) 2 still it is important.

But if we ant to work in a bank are in any sector after selection process they gives us a training. Similarly politicians after getting elected for a particular position they should be trained for their duties and even about constitution.

Though education up to 12th class is admonitory we can do this. So that we can get good grade of service from them.

I think that educational qualification is not necessary for the politicians. Only needed is that they should not addicted to money, should be honest. And also they should consider people's problem as their own. Like Thiru.Kamarajar, even though he was not educated, he did a lot for the people. Basically, An educated person always thinks about him, But an uneducated person will think about others too.

It is my opinion that even if education does lead to more rational thinking, it would be undemocratic to set it as criteria for our leaders. It is possible that someone is highly educated but unaware of the ground reality faced by the ordinary Indian man. I believe the beauty of the democratic system lies in the ability of the people to pick the leader they want, irrespective of educational qualifications, gender, caste or any such barrier.

If any leader is chosen in a free and fair election, it simply means that he is supported by the majority. It is not easy to win this support without doing anything for the people. And isn't a dedicated leader preferable to a PHD holder who is aloof to the everyday problems faced by the people?

Nevertheless, it is true that education helps a leader make more logical decisions. However, the bureaucratic system is in place to do just that. That is the reason why we have extremely qualified men to assist the leaders to make decisions that benefit the maximum number of people.

In our country we have kept certain qualifications for the job certain eligibility criteria, than why not for the politicians, if we really want to develop our country so the major step is to choose a candidate with better qualification who can run our country statistically.

I believe that if education was so necessary in our political system ; the majority of people who are educated would have changed the course of the country. I believe education is secondary the true spirit to work for nation is primary.

There is no point where an highly educated man who is corrupted run the country, the important is the person with clean and selfless approach work for the development of the nation.

And I am against the philosophy that only educated man can change the nation I believe a person who is high in his spirit of honesty and hard work can change the image of the nation.

Being an illiterate he will not be familiar with the problems a student faces, he cannot understand about the new technical methods used for teaching so being a leader requires all round knowledge or knowledge in any particular thrust so minimum qualification is necessary.

I think that the higher education is compulsory for the candidates who want to contest in election. Because it is necessary for the development of any state as well as the country. Without education he can't take any decision for the development of the state and can't make any law for the society. It is harmful for the country that the minister of its is illiterate so for the development for the country it is necessary that the politicians must be educated.

In this we can express from this quotation.

Hello friends,

I am Sanju from Kurnool.

Every politician must have education. Because politician means a leader who leads people and their disguises into good path. And he has same some qualities about knowledge, knowledge comes from the education. Through the education he can lead his nation in the way of prosperity in financial crisis situation. And finally it explains to politicians how to react in countries critical situation and how to get back from poverty and unemployment. Not only this type of problems to face and over come from these but also it reveals politicians through education.

Most of good affluent nation depends on right leadership that connected with education. Now a days politicians stage different when we compare to past. Now politician leaders have to deal with other countries and maintain that agreement and different aspects from others, etc. They should have some education knowledge in this context. Finally by education he provides better principles and can be led country to top of the position as he can do.

Hi friends,

Well I see you all are correct but in my point of view politicians must need a qualification. As we can see the performance of our uneducated politicians or government, its not so good. A politician must know what's going on in our country, they should be aware of it. When they will become educated then government will have only educated politicians and leaders which will be too good for our country and future.

But if the government isn't qualified then there is rare chances that it would be good, when it is educated then will able educate the country and the future generation, in this case there is good chance of getting a good government.

My point of view, politicians need not to be educated. They should have good qualities to serve people. Now-a-days, we are speaking a lot about corruption. An educated and uneducated, both doing the same. They need to satisfy their own needs, they are not worrying about the problems of people.

And the point that comes to my mind is, when a child likes to become a doctor, engineer, the parents will feel happy. But the same child if tells to become a politician, they feel worse. And change the mind of that child. Why this is happening? It is written in our mind that politicians are not good people. It totally needs to be changed.

The perfect socialistic mind who wants to serve the people are collected and then employed. No need that a politician to be educated. Everyone can find solution for a problem. Nowadays education is also get through internet. It is very simple to.

According to me the politicians must have some basic education like 12th, graduation with education the politicians have good personality, character, people relation and creative thinking in mind. Now we are living in computer world, education helps the politicians to use computer, international and represent our country in world wide.

We all want to become doctor, engineer, police, collector, banker, teacher very few people want to become politician because we think politicians are not good person, they are cheater, corrupted. Now we are expecting a politician with high qualification how it is possible?

Now a days there is a race between film actor & actress, criminals, players to become a leader. There must be some strict eligibility test for politicians like education, character, police record etc. So that we get a good leader.
