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.

Yes can politic atleast have a minimum of PG degrees in the hand to run a national like India. We are Indian behind because of educational. Our politics do have much more level of educational so run a nation but in others country such as USA, china, England etc. They had much more educational people in the politics to atleast run the nation with growth of the economic of the country.

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.

Not only educational qualification but also the knowledge which is not existed in education system but that knowledge gain from naturals. Educational qualification teaches so many things which we can't seen in the world.

Every time it is impossible to learn things from the natural but we can able learn from the education system.

I agree with you all. After all, knowledge matters not education.

However, physics or chemistry does not apply much in solving the country's problems. What is more important for a politician is leadership qualities and mainly, EXPERIENCE.

Educated think practically, whereas experienced think logically. According to me, our current prime minister, Mr. NARENDRA MODI can be our role model in concern of this topic.

I am supporting you all, let me say something about this topic, firstly education is not the matter for the politicians to give the service but, they are too experienced to solve the problems at the same time they need to dynamic personality, honesty, kind heart, strong decision making, and leadership, and also devotion about the society. If these all things are having the politician the country is become peace.

Hi friends,

In my point of view it is not necessary, because leadership qualities are not coming to the studies, its by birth. Studies are only giving to the knowledge. So many politicians are educated today but her not to try development of our countries, other then there involved number of scams. Finally my thing is education qualification in not necessary to politicians but leadership quality is main thing.

I believe that education should be must for a politician, to understand the problems of the society and to find the right way to solve it needs correct approach and deep understanding of the world around you.

And education works in developing a person's mind to be able to do deep thinking and create an understanding. How can we imagine our leaders without the basic etiquettes and knowledge.

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.

According to my point of view, yes of course there must be educational qualification for the politicians because now a days one needs to be well educated to keep pace with the current world. Education brings you to think differently in all aspects.

In politics decision making skills must required so without proper education it is difficult it bring down the problems. So education must be there to decide and can overcome the problem that our country is facing. For that one must be a good administrator as well to handle those kinds of stuffs.

In my opinion, politics has nothing to do with educated or uneducated in fact majority of professions have nothing to do with education.

Can't be explained in a single sentence but the only driven formula for success is collecting facts and capable of placing right people at right place. This of course requires good understanding on the game.

We have given reservations in Rajya Sabha on the grounds of expertise in various fields, and also we have many bearcats (IAS, IPS, IRS etc. ) within country it's just a matter of picking up suitable decision and matter of implementing it.

I guess one of the major reason, that we are still a developing nation is the lack of education, the leaders who took responsibility to run the government must be strictly educated. Education is the base of humanity, one can become a successful person through his skills, but one can never gain respect out of it if he/she is uneducated. Its not just about prestige, its also about the self respect that could only be earned through proper education.

Educational qualification might not be made mandatory in politics, education may be but it is not the ultimate way to earn knowledge, all we need is a great ruler with knowledge of what to be done for the best of our country.

At least there could be a single person who have enough knowledge and potential to rule us. So he should be given a fair chance. As our literacy rate is 74 %, are we really excluding the remaining 26% with an educational barrier.

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. Politician education should be different from other. How to interact with people, how to make good decision for our country etc.

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.

Hi everyone,

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.

Hi I am Alli,

First of all I am very glad to speak on this topic.

In my opinion, educational qualification must be necessary for politicians. Because even for a simple job we have some eligibility criteria to get through it. But politics is a very responsible profession compared to others.

If they are well educated and qualified then they can take their decisions by their own without depending on others. So that I support this.

Hello friends.

In my opinion minimum educational qualification for the politician should be there and it should not be less than post graduation. Because we all know that in our country, there is min education qualification for even sweeper in govt jobs, then why should these people who are going to run these governments can be illiterate?

Education widens a person's thinking ability, decision taking power. Although there are IAS officers who are making the polices for the government but the final decisions are taken by the politicians, so if they are well educated then only then can serve the society in a better way.

Thank You.

Good Evening My friend,

According to my point of view if the country ruled by educated politician where is the guarantee that he make the people fool. Either educated or uneducated is not a matter character of the person and willingness of person is important. Because Educated politician make the people fool in simple. There are nobody to ask any thing about mistakes. If any one ask then he simply escape by telling some rules. What I am saying is that people should educate. Then There is no mistake while choosing politicians. Of course I agree with all comments that Politician should educate. But people should also educated. That is my conclusion.

Thank you.

Because without qualification of an MLA, an MP they don't read any circulars for this purpose they maintain one pa for reading this sources.

Illiteracy is considered as curse everywhere in the world but in India we hand our whole political system to an illiterate person who can be easily be-fooled by anyone.

We need smart people, and people with little or less education can't be able to be smart. It is true that representative should be a person who is sensible and represent the whole society but in country like India can't we find a single qualified person who posses all that abilities of leader.

Friends I have something to say.

I personally feel that education qualification is not a great requirement for a politician in India. Every minister will have highly experienced IAS officers under him. No person in our society will become a CM/PM directly (except in very rare cases) , he will have to face tight competition in politics. He will definitely learn the real governance through his experience in the local level politics.

As concerned about knowledge a politician should be able to think in broad manner like an IAS or its equivalent. He should be in a position to understand what is happening around him and what is the present senior of the things going on. When he acquire that knowledge he will be in a position to understand others and can think for a solution of a problem in more sophisticated manner.

I can say education is not required for Indian politicians now because here most of them are coming to earning money and fame not for doing good. Instead of education if those would have had some other qualities such as good heart, courage, right decision making skills would be more helpful. If we think about growth and to be competent then education is very mandatory. No need education for sustaining the present level. I don't think so India has reached that mark.

Education is essential in politician qualifications, because he is the one who owns the responsibility to take feasible decisions in typical situations. Country/city development depends on his conclusions.

When we came service, it is not obligatory. It is the matter with heart, here essential qualifications are honesty and kindness.

So, politician has to make sure that not abandon above qualifications.

Narendra Modi, with not so strong education background, a sublime politician, an influential personality India has seen in years. Since elections, he made visits to many foreign country and surprisingly none questioned his educational background.

Rahul Gandhi, strong family background, high educational qualifications, yet not supported by Indians.

This makes one thing clear, we Indians demand a leader who is pragmatic, sincere, and offers viable solutions to the most intense problems faced by our country today, and we will always support them.

I wish I could have said that education is must, because then how will the politician understand the depth of the problem if he has no idea of that field, how will he ensure good relations with other countries if they have no common language to interact.

But our respected prime minister answered all these questions through his sincerity, hard work, honest and transparent behavior towards his followers, towards Indians,

And I think if a leader has those mentioned qualities, education hardly matters. :).

It may be any field or any situation in life, arguing that uneducated person is better than educated one is IRONICAL.

Coming to politics, political career of a politician doesn't solely relates to his own interests rather it decides the FATE of people under his governance.

So it's obvious that a person who governs state/country has to be well educated to take the most APPROPRIATE AND EXPEDITIOUS decisions.

An educated politician can well understand the requirements of various status of society and work for their upliftment by taking right decision at right time.

Good morning friends,

Now a days education is most important to all of us. To isolated any good or bad decision only to make a knowledge. Some peoples told education is a not a matter, its apart from the knowledge. And current politicians were comparing to the great speaker of Kamaraj and Anna. Its too poor. Because they are legends of politics and more influences of the peoples. Don't they compare with current politicians. They are only fame at serve only for people in our life of death. But current politicians only fame at notorious fame.

So education is more essential in politicians for solving problems and taking of innovative and creative ideas. Same mix flour doesn't to mixing is invaluable.

My point of view is that politicians should be educated. When the government necessitates that one should have at least a bachelors degree for a clerk post, it is all the more important for a framework that necessitates politicians to have a minimum qualification. And I also think this is important because even though they have many advisers in their cabinet who are individually experts in their field, for, the politicians to individually understand, believe and take a rational decision they must be asked to possess some higher qualification.

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 Theresa 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.

The only thing is a person should be proficient in what he/she is doing and education is only a mean of quantifying your skills.

In India there is an entrance test to be at any post. But to be a politician you need not to qualify or to meet any criteria. All you want is a support, doesn't matter whether the person is a holy man or a criminal.

There must be a criteria to be a politician:

1. A person must have matriculation certificate.
2. A person must have a clear background.

And its not difficult to meet this criteria as one can get knowledge to this level from government schools. Government has launched many schemes to provide education to all.

I am strongly in favour of the fact that it not and absolute necessary for our politicians to be educated. Because the qualities of leadership, organisational skills are not only taught by education.

We learn it as our life progresses through observation, implementation and experience. We find at many instance that the educated sometimes does not have organisational qualities. Where as the uneducated may possess the qualities.

Some are born to be leaders. Some are not. So a politician who deserves the seat by virtue of his qualities should always be given a chance irrespective of the fact that whether he is educated or not.

2 - They are pillars of our country and represents our country outside our India also if they are not educated enough then don't have the ability to judge right and wrong for our nation as well, as well as with education come the manners and dedicated to behave properly in front of everybody.

2. To get any kind of job when we (common people) need to have minimum qualification required then why not there is any minimum qualification requirement of politician.

Today, the test of being a politician is, your money power, your caste, how many degrees you have, but these should be avoided. The real test for politician must be his knowledge about the necessity of his countrymen. The politics must support the development of country. Politicians education must include the knowledge of agriculture and technology means he should have all the necessary knowledge for the overall development of the country. He must support the poor people.

He must be aware of the basic needs of the poor specially the children who are the future of the country. He must know how to work in a group. Today, the politician do not work properly and they give up their responsibility towards country's development.

1]Thinking 2]Saying 3]Action.

Thinking quality matters a lot here. If you think good about nation, you do good for nation. Thinking good does come from education.

Good Morning friends.

In my opinion educational qualification of a politician doesn't matters. But what matters is the knowledge he has about politics which can't came only from by education only but can come from the practical knowledge. You can take the example of King Akbar who was uneducated but was one of the leading leader of his time. He was not at all educated but was having a lot of experience due to which he was able to make correct decision.

Secondly we can take an example of a mechanic who doesn't have any theoretical knowledge but has practical knowledge about vehicles and on the other hand we have mechanical engineers who have theoretical knowledge but no practical knowledge due to which they are not able to repair there own vehicle. With this what I am trying to say is that practical knowledge is more important then theoretical knowledge so therefore it is not mandatory or it is not necessary that a politician is very well educated but he should have practical knowledge about the politics.
