Indian politics is perceived to be dynastic and ridden with corruption and favouritism. Politics can’t provide a steady source of income to young people. Moreover, huge amounts of money and years of struggle are needed to succeed in politics. Hence, young people avoid joining politics in India. Political leaders often invoke caste, religion, region etc. to divide the people to garner votes. Hence, young people usually avoid joining politics in India.
The following steps may be taken to motivate young people to join politics:
• Curbing the use of black money and corruption during elections.
• State funding of elections to reduce the use of black money during the time.
• Universities may provide a practical course on politics at graduation and post-graduation levels.
• The youngsters may join existing political parties as an intern on stipend paid by the government to learn the practical aspect of politics.
• A certain number of seats may be reserved for young politicians in elections by every party.
• Government may promote ‘start-up’ parties and provide them financial support, publicity on government media and an office. (177 words)
