Rar­ing to Go

India Today - - MAIL - S. K. CHATURVEDI, Jhansi www. in­to­day. com PRAKASH F. MAD­HWANI,

It is in­deed a very good trend that ed­u­cated youths from af­flu­ent fam­i­lies are par­tic­i­pat­ing in pol­i­tics these days and even man­ag­ing min­is­te­rial berths (“Pri­vate In­dia Goes Public”, April 30). Un­doubt­edly, this trend is a long sought one and will surely de­liver pos­i­tive re­sults. The coun­try has long suf­fered be­cause of its peren­nial prob­lem of politi­cians be­ing too old or not ed­u­cated enough. Young blood will in­vari­ably in­fuse new en­ergy into the sys­tem. The young MLAS from Pun­jab, Ut­tar Pradesh, Goa and Ma­nipur seem to be quite en­ter­pris­ing. One no­table fact is that bar­ring two, all of them are welle­d­u­cated and come from qual­ity in­sti­tu­tions. Some have chalked out their plans too, and if they stick to their agenda, they will emerge vic­to­ri­ous not only for their own good, but also for their re­spec­tive con­stituen­cies. I wish them all the best.
