Are the Politicians of Haryana Educated Enough

Naya Haryana

Among the other states and union territories, Haryana ranks 22nd in terms of literacy levels - testifying to the inadequacy of the state government to emphasise on education. While these are the overall statistics, the women of the state have exceptionally low literacy levels  and not much has been done to correct that either. While analysing the situation, it may be inferred that the levels of education among the political leaders of the state is not very high, unlike most other states of the country.

In Haryana, the politicians and political leaders hold precariously low levels of education. Among the politicians, lying about one's educational qualifications and obtaining bogus degrees is also not unheard of in the state. Given this scenario, the lack of development of educational facilities and the lack of collaborative ventures with foreign universities is not surprising.

The educational background of Haryana's political leaders came into spotlight in the Geetika Sharma suicide case of 2012. Haryana Legislative Assembly member and former minister in the Hooda administration, Gopal Goyal Kanda was accused of harassment and exploitation by MDLR air-hostess Geetika Sharma. Kanda was also accused of harassing Ms. Sharma's family and her mother who later killed herself as well. Commenting on the issue, the Chairperson of the Delhi Commission for Women Barkha Shukla Singh said that this was a problem that stemmed from a lack of education among the state's politicians. She also said that it is time that the electorate takes steps to change the political system.

The reason the constitution of India opened up administration and leadership without any specific qualifications or stipulations was to ensure that an overall representation of the people is achieved. Popular candidates should not remain left out due to their lack of educational backgrounds. It has, however, become increasingly important that well-deserving leaders with experience, exposure, and education are chosen to handle various portfolios in the state ministry. Only a person with some background in financial and economic handling capacity will be equipped to fill the state's economic portfolio. Lack of education among the state's current leaders is a great setback in matters of development. The state government must take initiatives to allow suitable candidates to fill in relevant portfolios and existing leaders to undergo development training programs to improve their administrative skills, no matter which political party they belong to.

Our vision of a Naya Haryana is a dream of a glorious state where wise and able leaders inspire the people to achieve goals that shall set benchmarks across the nation. Neither should lack of education inhibit a person's potential for progress, nor should a person with no desire to learn and develop himself/herself and the state be propelled into leadership roles. Achieving such a harmonious equitable balance is the only way ahead for our state.

Lack of education and literacy has been one of the major challenges faced by the state of Haryana since its inception. In 2001, the literacy level in the state was 67.9%; in 2011, after a decade, the figure remains a mere 76%. Among the other states and union territories, Haryana ranks 22nd in terms of literacy levels - testifying to the inadequacy of the state government to emphasise on education. While these are the overall statistics, the women of the state have exceptionally low literacy levels  and not much has been done to correct that either.
