Politicians can work better if they have deep knowledge of the root causes and remedies on those problems. And it is possible only by the education so All the politicians must be graduated to their respective area of politics.

Hello everybody.

Its great to see you all participating with such enthusiasm, but let me ask you one thing, how does a person's educational qualification has any connection with the mindset and the opinions of the person, say for example: our honorable prime minister Shri Narendra Modi is not well educated, but after all he is taking measures to improve foreign relations, while many of you may think he is having world tours and all. But its helping our country in many ways.

Hi friends,

As per my view's the politicians must be graduate so that they can understand about the route cause of the problems. A person who is not educated how can he rule. How can they would take the correct decision? We can see a lot of example in Indian history that we have been facing the problem only for basic facilities like water, electricity, home due to some uneducated politicians.

When the constitution makers wrote our constitution, they did not put any clause regarding educational qualification for people for a good reason. It was because the leadership qualities of a person cannot be judged by how much a person has studied. It depends on the work he does for his constituency and and his decision making capabilities.

If an educational qualification is made mandatory, it will forbid people from remote areas of our country who have worked a lot for their society but could not make it to a school due to some reason. Knowledge can also be earned through experience but we don't have a formal degree for that.

An argument is often put forth that an illiterate person make a sound judgement. Let's be honest, even after having a bachelor's degree, we cannot be sure of the decisions we make. Politicians have groups of academics to give their suggestions and with the help of his/her own experiences, he/she can take decisions.

Also, intentions of a person are more important than his qualifications. Even if a person is well educated, he can still indulge in corruption.

Hi guys,

In this era education is very important for everyone. Politicians are those people who are chosen by crores of people to run a country. In this era a uneducated person is not able to handle himself he had to take help of others he is actually a dependent person in many of his works. So do you think that a uneducated person who is not able to handle himself can handle a country of crore of people.

So there must be a minimum qualification for politician because these people have the life of crore of people.

This is a good topic for discussion. According to my view, as we know that education is more important for all the people even thought politician. With out education we are same like as a frog in the well, take a example if we want to become a software engineer we have to complete some degrees, same as if any one want to become politician, government have to make some rule to pass that degree. Because our whole life and our country development is totally in hand of politician. So our politician should have educated.

Hello everyone.

Education is good for everyone, but its good when you utilize it in a correct way. For all the politicians education should be made mandatory. Best results could come out making the nation as well as the people using advanced technologies. Eg - The concept of bullet train in India. The PM has took the initiative to make India sophisticated and lead to better development.

Even without a qualification the politician in earlier times ruled with a correct judgement in all aspects and all were in favour not against it. So whoever is appointed, he/she must have a good knowledge of judgement, correct utilization of powers and a support from public.

Hello friends.

Me Kratika Gupta.

According to me education give us the ability to explore our idea's, increases our knowledge and enhance our thoughts towards society and people. Hence if our leaders are educated then they can innovate their ideas more and can implement programs more efficiently, which can provide a high rate of growth to our country.

So there should be a minimum level of educational qualification should be mandatory for getting a ticket and take part in election as a "leader". Because a leader by winning election becomes a minister or MP OR MLA he/she has to run a "Administration", to run it efficiently he/she must have good knowledge of administration and also have faith and knowledge of our constitution.

So I think there should be a kind of skill testing exam should be held for politician so that their thinking toward citizen of India, thoughts for the growth, and idea's and the must skill that is "" LEADER SHIP "" skill should be tested. Most important thing is the skill testing exam must be transparent.

Thank you.

Education is most important in our life so our parent spend lot of money for their children's education. Education is a basic need in human life like home, food etc because the world is moving towards digital world so if want to see our self in this world we need education. Now we comes to point education qualification of politicians, if a normal person can not live his life without education so how can they, they are our leader they should be well educated.

Education gives a wide and deep understanding of any issue of a human life. But one point is important that we can not define one's behavior by his educational qualification. So I think there should a minimum qualification criteria for politicians they represent our country in the world and for good representation and good growth can be done by a good education.

So for a well and good politicians, a higher degree certificate isn't necessary because if we implement this rule then a politicians can buy it from a well reputed colleges or institutions as like buying vegetables in the vendor shop which the left hand game of some notorious politicians not for others.

On the other hand we can also say that there is no criteria to scrutinize them on the basis of the Government rules, democracy system like etc. So for this, people must be beware for this our politics and this is in their hand.

Hey guys.

Well coming to qualification of a politician, A politician plays a role of a normal citizen plus a politician. He/she must be qualified in order to provide the best knowledge to the nation that could help them to protect the people from other greats. We can take the example of APJ Abdul Kalam being the ex president of India, he played the role of both being a normal citizen understanding the problems of the people and a scientist i.e. missile man providing the nation with hi tech technology. This not only helped our nation to withstand with other well armored nations but also gave a great contribution to the youth.

Even in olden days where the education is not given much importance the kings used to rule with good educational qualification. Where as now it is much more important to get educated.

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

It was also good to some extent but the appointed person may have the chance to wrongly utilize the power of the politician.

Education is very important for politicians because we can't hold the state or country in the hands of uneducated people. This may stop the growth of a country by taking improper decision made by politician.

Hi friends. From my point of view there is non need of degree for politicians. Because if we talk about their degree so they can buy it from any institution. So there is no need of degree. I support only how the leader take efficient decision in any time of instance. So that leaders have more experience about their field.

Basically degree shows how you alter yourself from studies. But the real fact behind the good leaders is having more knowledge about his field. If they have more knowledge about their field. So they can do any type of work in any type of hardly situations. However I want to support the experience not need of degree.

In my opinion there should be an educational referendum for the politicians as it will not only help them in understanding the situation better but as well as it will make them disciplined which I think has become necessary seeking on various events like one in up parliament.

Overall, if a leader is educated then it will form a clean image in front of the people of the country and people will try to take part in the politics actively and the young leaders with well education could come up in front and make politics clean, holy and work oriented rather than caste oriented.

Kind of higher degrees is not required for the politicians from the incident times. The politicians are coming from various background, it may be family tradition or their willingness inspires themselves. A man need to be very careful about the situations he is passing through.

So to handle any situation the experience is enough, there should not be any higher or lower degrees. So it can be say that he must be educated as much that could help him not to stop in his way of politics, but he does not require very much degrees.

Hello everyone,

I want a add a point to the above discussion is that, every politician should not be a degree holder because if we ask them for degree they buy it from the institutions for them it is like buying vegetables from the market.

They should have a basic knowledge about the government system for what it was meant for and what are the main objectives of govt while contributing to the development of the country.

Final conclusion I want to give is that instead of asking for degree they need to test the ability of the competing politician. And I think it won't happen in INDIA, because politics is a business. I hope for the change in coming years.

Non-Educated politicians are main obstruction to our country's development. Government must take the step in terms of politicians education. Our politicians should have the master degree related to the field for which they are appointing. Education helps us to think out of the box, practically and very important how we can utilize our available resources.

Our politicians always depends on others opinion to take any action. Even, they don't know about their rights and responsibilities as well. So, I am not able to understand that why they come in politics, if they don't know anything about our country. They come just to earn lots of money, by hook or by crook.

In conclusion, I will just say our politicians must be educated to take the necessary steps and actions for our country and their citizens.

Presently even the security of the present politicians are mostly well qualified (IAS/IPS) and it is ignorant that these IPS/IAS officers are compelled to do whatever these politicians asks them to do, even dance to their tunes.

But I think nowadays politician growing up highly as a result many undeserved people are eating job from deserving people who are very hard worker.

I agreed that there should be educational qualification for politicians or eligibility test of some kind for them to be eligible for contesting elections.

I believe, after all we are electing our representatives, who are to decided our future and the future of our country. Politicians which don't have any knowledge of issues of national interests, how they are expected to run the country. The person who doesn't know our culture, traditions, and most importantly about the problems which the country is facing has not right to represent the people in my opinion.

Some kind of eligibility test like CTET, NET etc should be made compulsory for contesting elections and this test should be taken by ECI to ensure transparency and this could be one of the solutions, otherwise just fixing educational qualification as graduate or post graduate will not help, as everybody knows taking paper degree will not be difficult for politicians.

Hi everyone,

According to me, educational background should be one of the criteria for qualifying or disqualifying a person for being a politician. Having said this, I don't completely agree to the fact that having a bachelor's degree or a PG degree is sufficient. The person's ethical and past background must be thoroughly checked and evaluated so as to ensure that the person aspiring to be a politician won't be corrupt once he assumes the designation as a minister.

Criminal background must be checked to ensure that the person has a clean past background and is not entering into politics just because he/she is not able to find any other job because of this reason. Also, an attempt should be made to verify if that person really has an interest to selflessly serve people of the nation.

Politician should be a graduate. And I agree with some of my mates that yeah scientists, doctors, etc anyone can be politicians. Leadership qualities are not developed in one day. A good leader is one who understands his own flaws, works upon them; should be a good listener, and has the ability to change things.

There's a difference between a scholar and educated person, what I believe is that a politician should be well educated in order to control and lead our country.

I think education is very needed for politicians, because if there is a calamity, or disaster happened then how to handle that situation needs a qualified mind, and also if the political member is not educated then how he can understand to use the new technology for the development of the nation, an illiterate person can't never brought change in the nation, so, I think education is very important in political systems as well as for politicians.

According to me education is always good for everyone, either politicians or mango man. And I think politicians should be educated because they represent our country in front of the world. They are the leader of our nation they have some responsibilities.

The education means not like "he should be a degree holder" but at least they have some education qualification I think there should be some qualification criteria for politicians according to his job or should I say post.

It provides help for developing our country. We all know educated person are handle many problem easily more than uneducated person. Politicians make lots of decision for people so they must be educated.

I accept experience is also good but before experience education must. For example: In our collages 1-5 sem we learn about our field then they give us chance for training why? Because learning is important. At the last I want to say, only educated person should be politician.

What are the rules have been kept by government how can follow there rules, how we can judge the government if they take wrong decision these all things people should know. And coming to politicians, our government has been preferable only educate persons.

A few things we need to keep in mind when talking about making educational qualification for politicians essential in India, are is it viable, is it democratic? and some other key terms. Now, examining the current scenario in India, we find that not all politicians are well educated. Yeah. Some even have fake degrees. Educated leaders are the need of the hour for a developing nation like India. It will not only help all sections of the society but our economy too. It is, in fact a very viable solution. But there is another Side to this argument too.

Making educational qualification essential for all politicians deprives people from a poor or backward region the chance of holding office. It is, frankly speaking undemocratic.

Now if we give a broader perspective to the situation, we need a minimum qualification even for a sweeper's job. Does he need to apply any formula to clean the floor? it's just the enlightenment that education provides. Therefore, there should be a minimum qualification for politicians.

Even a poor is now doing great endeavors to climb the mountain of backwardness, discrimination, illiteracy and poverty. It is also a fact that today also many are starving and die due to no medication facility. But that doesn't mean to keep the politicians uneducated.

Hello friends,

As we all know that education is a very important part of the country. India, in which country we try to educate every poor child then the people who are going to rule this country or we can say going to develop this country, how can we take their qualifications so easy. At least they should know the condition of country and what are the factors which can improve the condition of country qualification should not based on only degree, it should be based on their quality of leadership and their way of thinking about each category of people who live in this country.

As many people in our system have fake degree so if we goes on the basis of degree we can never understand actual qualities of the person. As we know now a days Jitendra Singh Tomar having fake degree was MLA of Delhi government. So educational qualification should not be only criteria for a politician other factors are also effect our countries requirement.

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.

It was a former chief minister of Tamil Nadu Mr. Kamaraj, who was a good leader who did not have his education but was the one to implement compulsory schooling to all children below 13 in the mid 1980s along with the mid day meal scheme to attract the poor children. Where did all this idea come from? Was it because of his educational qualification?

In my point of view education should compulsory for all politician leader, because a well educated person can lead a government in a effective way and easly understood the problem of public. Now a days Indian citizens are selling their voting rights for money. In our nation who have more assets they can became a political leader.

They are buying the voting rights of our citizen by giving money people choose a not suitable leader. It is far away for a wise man to became a political leader. My suggestion we should keep some criteria for a candidate to became a political leader and contact entrance exam to the candidates otherwise people should choose a ideal person.

Hello everyone.

First of all I would like to say that there are four basic needs of a human being. Food, clothing, shelter and education, and without these basic needs its very difficult to survive in today's world. A well educated man can run a house in a far more better way than an uneducated man. So if an uneducated man cannot run his house properly, then how can anyone expect from him to run a state or a country. An experience person could be called as well trained not educated and there is a huge difference in both the terms.

Experience can teach him how to do it but education will teach him When, where and how to do it. Certainly there should be an eligibility criteria for politicians. I am sure an educated politician will run the country in a much better way. In my opinion, uneducated politicians are becoming a constant barrier in success of this rich and amazing country.

Hello friends,

Yes, it should be mandatory to have minimum qualification norms to become a politician. The first reason is they are the person who handle the responsibilities and if they are not qualified then how can they understand various scenario of economy. To get any kind of job we need to have minimum qualification required then why not there is any minimum qualification requirement of politician.

According to my point of view a politician should be qualified because an educated leader manages, organizes, motivates and directs the country for continuous growth. And they also take right decision at the right time. An uneducated person can run the political system with the help of his experience but he can't manage the work's properly as like an educated leader. Education of politician must include the knowledge of agriculture and technology means he should have all the necessary knowledge for the overall development of the country. It is not necessary that he has a number of degrees but he should be aware whats going on in the world.

He should have good planning skills and decision making capability, he must be able to understand the problem related with the people and country and able how to handle them. Due to illiteracy our ministers and politicians doing fake politics they do not works for public service and they also depend on govt officers for English speech and many other works. As far I think education qualification is must for public delegates.

They should and must have minimum qualification because if the leaders will visit the foreign country, they should communicate in English only and they must gather information about their country and their technology to develop and change our country in various ways.

If this is the case there is no difference between a literate and illiterate. Education teaches us how to live in the society. When there are any conferences with other countries they need to talk with them in English, at that time education is must.

Lets see friends, if our bike punctured we went to puncture shop and take out puncture, similarly car servicing, marketing, shopping etc we do near the people who does not have the qualification in their stream but they have experience. Many tailors does not did fashion designing, most of the farmers does not have agriculture degree even they do different vegetables and we eat them.

This shows experience is more important than qualification. As it is a group discussion the negative points are if we are not well then we prefer doctor with qualification instead of local doctor with experience because we care our self, similarly nation is like our health if we do not care then we only the people who will suffer. So the minimum qualification for politician is required.

In my opinion politician should be well educated because politicians are those people who are leading our nation. So they have many responsibility. An uneducated man how much can do.

And we know that that education is the true power. A pen is stronger than a sword. So politician should be well educated then he can understand the power of education. Education is only thing which can solve many problem like high population, pollution etc.

Politicians have to make many decision at a time. No need to say that an educated man can do better than any uneducated man in this case. An educated leader can do proper utilisation of power. So every politician should have minimum degree in any field. Its necessary.

Hi friends,

Many people thinks that a particular language is enough for a life for an individual. (For example: Hindi, Telugu, English, Arabic, etc) But when the time comes to read or write anything they keep their mouths shut. You can write or read only when you are educated means (i.e. literate) when one normal individual can't serve his life without education then how it can be possible for a "politician who is going to run a state or a country or etc". Today or else tomorrow he/she may become a "Prime Minister" "Chief Minister" or "any other Minister".

So, according to me a politician should have a minimum degree in any field. (its must) I hope you people may have heard this "idiom" that the pain of a educated people can only feel by an educated people.
