Like NEET, Why not MEET & PEET for State Assembly and General Elections????
So a student, irrespective of his/her best performance in +2, has to score good marks in NEET to get admission into Government/Premier Colleges.
The main purpose of conducting entrance exam is to judge the student’s ability, sharpness, knowledge, etc. Fair enough.
Similar to NEET Examination, why not judge a politician’s ability, knowledge, integrity, etc through an examination????
Further if you look at the Minimum Qualification Criteria for an MLA & MP, it is just the age:
MLA - “Not less than 25 years of age to be a member of the Legislative Assembly”.
MP- “Not less than 30 years of age in the case of Rajya Sabha and not less than 25 years of age in the case of Lok Sabha”.
Of course, this is as per Constitution and no arguments…….
These people are the Law Makers and also potential Law Breakers !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Unfortunately, the current political arena doesn't provide any scope for the educated and honest people to serve our Country.
Is it not time to reverse this situation?????????? When the Earth itself is not static, what stops the Government from changing the Election process????
Why not the Central Government make the below tests mandatory:
1) MEET (MLA Eligibility cum Entrance Test) Examination for State Assembly Elections
2) PEET (Parliamentarian Eligibility cum Entrance Test) Examination for Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha Elections
Set a minimum vote percentage for the contestant to become eligible to take the test.
Declare the 1st rank holder in each constituency as an elected representative (on merit basis).
In my view, even a 1% filtration of filth would be a deserving change for the common man.
Request LC to take it up with the Highest Authority in the Government. more
When just to study MBBS/MD/Engg., we have so many entrance exams, why not similar exams with minimum 60% or more eligibility criteria for those politicians who are going to rule the country and decide the fate of our future generations.
Politicians with any criminal or anti-social background must be debarred from contesting ANY elections at even the most basic levels, for minimum 20 years after they complete serving their punishment. more
