We may rant and criticize about our politicians and how corrupt and under qualified they are to govern us, here is a myth breaker The following politicians, CMs of various states are amongst the most educated in our Country!
- Dr. Ramesh Pokhriyal(Nishank): The current CM of Uttrakhand, fondly known as ‘Nishank’ is a poet, teacher, journalist, author, Sanskrit scholar and a politician! He holds a triple M.A. in Sanskrit, Hindi, Political science before pursuing his research! However his exposure to the Liberal Arts education has not restrained him from straining to the path of corruption and dishonesty! Despite coming from such a literary heritage, he has soiled himself in many petty scams and the huge debacle around the Kubh Mela! Clearly, our politicians are known more for their corrupt practices rather than their education!
- Dr. Raman Singh: The CM of Chattisgarh, Dr. Raman Singh is a B.A., B.A.M.S. (Ayurveda) has been instrumental in reducing corruption in the State by a considerable margin! He was also a hard-core social activist as a student! For a change, some of our politicians tried to do something outside the gamut of corruption!
- Shivraj Singh Chauhan: The CM of Madhya Pradesh, Shivraj Singh Chauhan is a Gold Medalist in M.A. (Philosophy)! He was also a member of the Hindi Salahkar Samiti from 1994-1996!
- Tarun Kumar Gogoi: The Assam CM is a B.A. and LL.B. apart from being an avid sports lover and a great teacher! He loves to read and has also been a part of many anti-corruption drives in the country!
