Raring to Go
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.
