No doubt India is the biggest democracy in the world and its achievement cannot be deemed to rely first on the educational qualification of its leaders or politicians.But It's only education that gives a human being the ability to differentiate between right and wrong, good or bad.
India has a history of highly educated leaders since the time of independence but the significance and the pivotal role of education in the decision making leadership and as a power to run a country has disappeared desirable to make a minimum educational qualification can be executed so that our leaders are prepared with the ability to appreciate various issues with our sighted vision.
India is undergoing various challenges involving economic development, infrastructure, health and Hygiene, poverty, unemployment etc but the reason behind loss in the elimination of these depravities is corruption that is prevalent in our country because political power converges with economic power.
