I don't agree with you all friends you all are saying that education is necessary. A politician should think for his country at least he should not be corrupted. What a education will do if person is just getting his country down and down or he is corrupted. So a politician should be just a person to lead his country to the highest levels that's all.

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.

Hi everyone,

I think that the educational qualifications matters a lot in this field and I am agree with a number of people. But they should also have multitasking way of working. A person having the qualities of positive thinking, quick decision making, dynamic, effective time using, honest to his work and a true determined or highly committed to the social works. Such a person will be best for society and leadership and educational features make him to increase continuously.

Thank you.

From my point of view education and modern views a are most important things to be found in the leader of India in this 21st century because I don't think that an uneducated, uncivilized and a traditional person can help in making India a developed nation.

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.

Hi one and all here,

I think that there should be some education qualification needed to be a politician.

Because we have a big constitution and to run the administration of such a big country like India is not a easy thing and the people who are not good can't run the administration nicely. And many jokes have also been cracked that when a person is failed in other fields he joins politics.

Education is also important to politicians, but the person, who did not study in their childhood know the benefits of education that made them to do more for us to improve education in our nation. Students are the pillars of our nation.

Good student should be made only by education so that education should be done by politicians who is not study more. Otherwise the politicians have their own knowledge with problem solving skill under pressure. He is ready to face the problem for the nation.

Education for me includes both knowledge and soft skills (leadership quality, way of communication, etc). Every politician should be educated as he/she is going to represent whole nation. He/she will be the one deciding the rules for every field whether education, trade, medical facility.

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.

So in short what I think is education is the first step to govern.

In my point of educational qualification of politicians are most important thing. Uneducated people struggles to take correct decision for a particular situation. If he is an educated one means the decision is making all the people to feel satisfied.

Uneducated also taking decisions correctly based on their experience but that will not helpful for them in all situation. This is my thought about the education qualification of politicians.

I think that there should be educational qualification for politician because we know that education belongs to both physical, mental and behavioural growth of a human being thus it will help the people to develop their leadership quality.

Second point is that now we are going to be super power of 21 century and how ridiculous it will look that leader of a super power country are not able to even communicate properly.

Third point is our government is conducting various program in the country for educating people but here there is a need to lead by example and if people leading the country will be uneducated how they will set an example.

Hello friends,

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. Because of they learned the problems during their education.

So education is must for politician, because there is a difference between a gram panchayat sarpanch and a country politician :).

Hi friends,

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.

But I think that education should be in field of administration, politics and economy of country. He has nothing to with subjects of mechanical engineering in politics.

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.

Hello friends,

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 everyone,

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.

Thank you.

I would like to share my opinion here friends. Qualification is doesn't matter. We shouldn't see their qualification. We should consider their management ability. 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. Experience is more valuable than qualification.

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.

Hi I am Mahesh, yes education is necessary for politicians if our politicians are not educated then they can't able to solve problems of our country and also they can't communicate with foreign country for development related issues of our country very effectively. So education is most important for politicians.

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.

An uneducated have no identity. If any person whom we choose as ruler of our nation is illiterate he is unable to understand the reasons for the backwardness 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! Narendra Modi himself try some initiatives for improving education system of India, according to popular TV dialogue "Padega India Tabhi to Badega India" education is must for every class of people.

Most of our politicians have even not passed their matriculation or the bachelors degree but are ruling the whole affairs of our country. I mean that the one's who cannot manage their own education or the ones who are not even aware of what education is are managing the education departments or are some kind of education minister of our state or province.

Our country today needs politicians who are well qualified and can lead our country into a new era. We need politicians who can empower the whole country but in a right way or in a new diversion. We need politicians who can impart knowledge to us and not the one who needs knowledge from us.

Yes, there should be some education qualification criteria for the candidate to stand in some election because education will bring more exposure to a person and will be a better candidate but every educated candidate will be a good leader is not necessary, so there should a criteria which will see the past record of person, say what portfolio does a candidate carry regarding his work for the betterment of the society.

Election commission before allowing candidates to contest election, should look at the CV of the candidates and then only should allow a person to contest election and to make sure that the judgement is fair they should be directly under the jurisdiction of supreme court of INDIA.

And if government really think that only these qualities are enough not education than why government Asking for not just graduation but a no of competition exam for the post like IAS, IPS, Army Officers.

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.
