Like food is necessity of our body similarly education is compulsory for our brain an uneducated brain is like an unhealthy body. So its a need of the hour in every field in politics also its a must required phenomenon. Our political leaders who are going to rule us should be educated enough to take the correct decision for the people benefit. So a minimum level of education is required.

Hello everyone,

I feel that education is must for the politicians. There is one more thing I want to share that by education it doesn't mean that reading books or novels education simply means the knowledge we acquire and how we implement it. Knowledge can be gain from experience and observation. So, yes politician must be educated so that they can implement their knowledge for the welfare of society.

Thank you all.

About this topic I would like to say that people who are trying to pursue a political career must be qualified. Education is really important, it gives us tremendous knowledge. And knowledge is the most important weapon that can change a persons mindset, make him confident and wiser. These are definitely the qualities that you would want to see in your future leader. An educated person with these qualities would surely make great decisions for the betterment of the country.

Hi friends.

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.

I think politics have more perfection and capabilities of instinct verdict all of you know that now a days it has been ridiculous by some anarchist and continuously growing because today many of them getting think about themselves whereby they are not working for the country.

It's main reason less educational level so that at least they need to get specific knowledge about system to get workable ideas. There is no need high educational qualifications because political power makes great by using knowledge about society and economic conditions.

According to my opinion, educational qualification and politics are both side of coin. Which education is knowledge that knowledge is useful for the development of country. Nowadays most of the people comes from criminal society that people earns public property for own needs.

Education is necessary because it is important for personality development, respect, confidence and it is something which should not buy with rupees but I am sorry, farzi degrees are rocking these days in all sections of the society, this is ridiculous, immoral and unethical, stop all this whether it is any minister or any body else, shameless.

Leaders are born. This is the old quotation. Now the leaders are learned. They learned how to cheat the people, how to earn money. A person with less knowledge will think in the narrow way.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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?

Education also reduces negative qualities of a human for an example always Kerala has low crime cases in all over India because it has 90 % educated people. Not only education qualification but character profile of politician should also be verified for being politician.

Education should be must for politicians. This is the drawback in Indian system. Knowledge of a educated person is different from the uneducated one. An educated one can serve the country in any situation. He thinks upon all the perspective whether about the student, adult, common man, unemployed or old one.

Hello friends,

In my point of view, education is must for politician, because they represent our nation on world wide. Education is improve our thinking quality, skills, behavior, etc and also education can decrease the level of corruption. The most important difference in between educated & non educated is the way of thinking. First change our mentality.

Education is must and should for politicians, because, those are the people who represent the whole nation, so all other nations will see about the person who representing the nation. By knowing, his background some of the nations won't show any interest while he doing any rules or while making decisions.

Hi friends,

In 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 learn about a topic in few seconds. So, I think, a broad minded, good qualities make a good politician.

Thank you.

Agreed with all of you, but I am of the opinion that education on some of the parts is necessary for a politician. Even though it is also true that in past time we had some less educated politicians but with this it is also a fact that they led the country in a well perfect manner.

Since, we are living in a technological world where daily new developments/innovations are taking place, and to understand its modern technique through scientists, inventors education plays a key role.

And at least to understand this in an appropriate manner a politician must be educated to express his country's developments in other countries.

Hello Friends,

Without knowledge anyone can't do anything and education is the resource of gaining the knowledge.

So leaders are our representative on which the whole Indians are identified. And this age is called as technical and globalization age so leader must no about these things and would be capable to take correct decision on time that's why education must be needed. So every leader must have enough knowledge about general, social and technical things to serve our nation towards the right way.

The good example is former president A.P.J.Abdul Kalam who have taken the successful test on nuclear power.

By seeing this topic there is one point striking in my mind. What is the difference between politician and common man? A politician must know the country's wealth and problems and get ready for facing upcoming situations.

There is no need of educational qualification for politicians. If we looked in history, many politicians with low qualification and having good moral serve good for peoples many social activist don't have higher level educational qualification but they did it well, so point is rather than we set educational qualification we need to make assessment of character of our politicians.

To serve country, is all about moral not about education, so why we need to set educational qualification?I think we need certain laws if any politician has found guilty in any case then he should be disqualified for election. Many politicians are lawyer many politicians are highly educated but they found guilty in many cases, so we need good moral, good character and having ability and will power rather than degree certificate.

What I feel about this topic is its not all about education. Its all about the mind set of the people who are got elected in election so called "politicians". Because we have the example with us a non educated politician can lead us to better development than a well educated politician. But for the time being When we are giving power to these people to lead us.

They just come to know that they are secured in that chair of ultimate power in our nation for five years. That mindset lead them do the worse things. That has to be changed the power should be always in the hands of common people. If the elected ones are not going in the correct way.

We should have the right of calling him back from his powers and duties Just to make him understand that he/she is not safe there. That makes them rethink what they are doing right now. That makes him to respect the people that makes him stick on his duties.

Hello friends.

The Indian political system is in a mess because leaders are incompetent. For decades, we have been victims of corruption and there has been no development ever since our independence from the British. This is the bitter truth and the only solution is to elect leaders who are capable, well-educated, and are passionate about improving the welfare of the citizens. All the three aforementioned qualities are necessary for the growth of the country.

Having educational qualifications should not be the sole criterion for electing a leader. India's current Prime Minister holds a doctorate, the highest educational qualification one can receive, and yet, his contributions to the Indian economy and social welfare are not significant. This is because he is not passionate about reviving the Indian economy or enhancing the lives of the people.

On the other hand, we have capable leaders such as former Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh Chandrababu Naidu, who changed the face of Hyderabad by developing the infrastructure and enhancing business opportunities in the city. He holds a Master's degree and is not as highly qualified as Prime Minister Manmohan Singh but because of his dedication and determination to improve the lives of Indians, he has been declared a capable leader.

Having the right educational background and qualifications are important because education acts as a foundation for implementing policies. Only when people are aware of the problems can they think of the solutions. So, potential candidates should at least have a degree in fields that are relevant in the political arena.

Today, we see film stars joining political parties and they manage to secure votes because of their popularity. However, their capabilities are questionable. Some actors are well-qualified, no doubt, but are they aware of the problems of the poor and can they understand the dynamics of the economy?

These are some of the questions that we ought to ask ourselves before allowing people to take part in elections. Running a country and leading over a billion people is no laughing matter; it requires intelligence, charisma, foresight, and determination.

The US economy was in ruins when President Barack Obama took over from former President George W Bush. However, he managed to revive the US economy and today, the US economy is growing. President Obama managed to improve the lives of US citizens because of his strong educational background in law and his love for his country.

So, before allowing potential candidates to take part in elections, we should ensure that they have relevant degrees such as in law, economics, or political science, are capable of bringing positive change to the country, and most importantly, committed and determined to take the country to greater heights.

My opinion that politicians need good educational qualification, because that he had a better communication and good behaviour qualities so that he make several conversation between people of different linguistic and people of other nation in this time he can't make a good conversation it make bad impact.

I'm not telling that uneducated politicians are make bad impact. We know that Abraham Lincoln world famous politician he is not good educated. But these are rare examples, our former pm Manmohan Singh is highly educated in the world, he achieve near 100 of degrees he is a good ruler of our country.

As they are the representative of the people or the nation, they have to face all the issues on the behalf of the country/states, thus they should have a knowledge. So that they can be able to take the right decision to take the nation in the right direction.

And my another point is that, they make all the plans and policies, they are indirectly the job givers and if the leaders are illiterate then how anyone can expect that the youth can get the fair chance.

We would not like if a PM or CM or any other person who represents our country and is illiterate, then how will he communicate with other countries and how will he be able to say his point or idea on anything I he can't even speak English!

But in 1960's our major problems like corruption was not too serious, in that time education level in our country was not too high as compare to today.

It means problem is not with education only, we need politicians with good human values like honesty and they should be dedicated for development of our country. India need awareness of voters, they should vote on the basis of performance and background not on the basis of caste or religion.

Hi friends, I think educational qualification of politicians must be serious concern before voting. Voting for someone implies I am choosing that person for proper management of resources regarding any particular department.

So if he is not deft enough regarding basic things of the sector he is allotted to, it may not be possible to make the most effective decisions regarding different issues. Although management is there to determine the policies but the supreme power holder must have some perception and conception.

About that otherwise even a good proposal may face strong oppositions and may be discarded. Also from social point of view due to lack of proper education up-to a certain extent can make it difficult for him to earn a reputation.

I think a minimum educational qualification maybe 12 or graduate (of course not like masters or PhD) should be there for politicians too. Earlier everyone didn't have opportunity to study even though they wished and thus some bright and honest people too remained uneducated who later came to politics and did great works. But today is different, basic school education is easily available for all and anyone who skips it must be a lazy or an ignorant person.

The world is moving fast and every country wants to excel and for that we need knowledgeable leaders. Of course corruption is one thing we all are concerned about, and in my opinion both educated and uneducated are same corrupt, even a good person later becomes corrupt as he enters the political system, thus corruption is a different story as a whole. Just imagine we have a corruption free government plus educated leaders, then we could not have asked for anything more.

I believe that education qualification should be must for candidates contesting in an election. I don't say that candidates without educational qualifications will not be a good candidate. The political leaders are the people who represent the society or country as whole, hence it is necessary for them to be qualified. If the people's representatives are not educated then how can we think that our society can progress.

A well educated leader would be more better at communicating his views to the people or the world. The thinking perspective of the individual changes, which would help him in taking better decisions for the development of the society.

I want to say that education is not only the set of degrees and certificate but it is more than that it develops the person intellectually and fully. An educated person will think in a different way than an uneducated person.

On the other hand I also want to say that it can never be possible that an educated person will never make a mistake he will but will reform it as soon as he can. There are examples in the past in which the leaders who do not had the good qualification had done well but what happening today is the sons or relative of the politicians are driving our country and spoiling the resources they know that they will get ticket easily.
