Voting eligibility Minimum Education is to be fixedIn Indian anybody who completes 18 years is eligible for voting. Many of the voters are iilterates. They don't even understand actually what is the vote and what power it has.
If you go to some remote villages where these uneducated people are there. In that village there will be a leader for each caste. Whatever he says all the remaining people of that caste will obey that. The politicians will take care of those leaders as per their political affiliations. In truth he will see that all his caste people will cast their vote to the candidate suggested by him
No one believes that even today many SC and SC candidates even don't know the benefits they are eligible and avail.
To avoid this and to make the selection process meaningful, I feel a minimum educational qualification should be prescribed for getting the voting power. People who don't have voting power can't contest in election. I want to know the views of ISC members.
