“Youths can change the course of the nation and they should prepare to be holistic politicians. I feel that we need to bring more women in politics as they have time and again proven to be good leaders,” Patel said.

Pune: “Only educated youths have the power of steering India to a clean India with clean politics,” said Anandiben Patel, Governor of Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh and former chief minister of Gujarat. She was speaking at the convocation ceremony of 13th batch of students of Masters in Programme in Government (MPG) course of MIT School of Governance (SOG) on Thursday.

“Youths can change the course of the nation and they should prepare to be holistic politicians. I feel that we need to bring more women in politics as they have time and again proven to be good leaders,” Patel said.

Addressing the students of MIT-SOG, Patel said, “You as public servants are indebted to serve the people of the country. It is indeed a very unique thought of a school which teaches you nuances of politics which you must implement in thought and action.”

Earlier, Maj Gen Anil Verma, in his speech, advised students to assess the current state of Indian democracy and think about solutions to improve it.

Sachin Sawant, who transited from an IT marketing professional to a politician said that his inner calling of serving the country drove him to politics.
