POLITICS IN INDIA - YOUTH GIVING IT
A NEW SHAPE
The youth is definitely the dynamic strength of the nation, cream on the cake as they call it.
And with the majority of the population in India in the 25-35age category, the power of
youth cannot be under-determined. And if this power comes to the ruling class in India, the
It was a sad state to see our political system. With a majority of senior players in the front,
the political system lacked dynamism and innovation. Young political leaders were not
encouraged to come forward, nor given the push. But times are changing. Though the
involvement of youth into mainstream politics is very dim, the number of youngsters getting
interested in the politics of the country is alarming.Statistics say that while 1996 had only
43% of urban youth interested in politics, this number has risen to71% (as of 2001). This
good sign can only hope for more young politicians.
Now a sudden increase in the interest for politics could be reasoned to the increasing
corruption cases that have come out in the limelight.Telangana’s issue, rape cases, Anna

to join them. Political parties should also care for the youth and execute plans that benefit
It’s a no brainer to foresee the power of the youth. With brilliant ideas to execute, the
ability to understand the woes of people both young and old, and the passion to follow
through the rules honestly, will set apart the youngsters from the senior politicians. For the
success of our country, we need honest and able youngsters in our cabinets.
Another immediate benefit of young politicians is the sense for developmental needs.
Infrastructure, benefits and opportunities will never be missed and will work towards
bettering the lives of the people.
With the right amount of encouragement and motivation, youth can serve for the Indians
and make our country proud.
