Mangaluru: Politicians need training in discipline, restraint - Khader

Daijiworld Media Network - Mangaluru (SP)

Mangaluru, Jan 1: "Political activists and leaders function among the general public. They need to be taught about discipline and self-restraint," felt state food and civil supplies minister, U T Khader.

He was speaking at the valedictory function of National Rovers and Rangers Moot of Bharat Scouts and Guides organized at St Aloysius institutions premises on Sunday December 31.

Khader lamented the fact that educated people have been actively indulging in corruption, terrorism, and other forms of crime. "I therefore am of the opinion that discipline and life values should be included in educational curriculum. Rovers and Rangers should in the coming days, initiate scouts and guides movement in every village. There is no doubt that people who work in this organization emerge as excellent citizens of the country," he stated.

Dakshina Kannada district deputy commissioner, Sasikanth Senthil, speaking on the occasion, said that even small things acquire importance in one's life. He said that when working as software engineer, his work did not provide him psychological satisfaction. He revealed that his training in scouts and guides inspired him to choose the current profession.

The programme was organized on the occasion of the birth centenary of freedom fighter and former national commissioner of scouts and guides, Deendayal Naidu. Dignitaries offered floral tributes to the photo of the late Naidu.

Leader of Rovers and Rangers Moot, Analendra Sharma, presented Moot report. State commissioner of scouts and guides, P G R Sindhia, was felicitated. Rector of the college, Fr Dionisius Vaz, delivered valedictory address.

    U.T. Khader's words of advice apply in equal measure, to politicians belonging to all political parties, whether they belong to the ruling party or to the opposition.

    The exercise should start with the top leaders, and filter down to the lower rung of leaders and then, to the party workers. Then only, will there be no scope for hypocrisy and fake behaviour.

    100% agree with Khader that politicians desperately need training on how to handle their job.
    Most of the present day politicians are crude, uncultured and "toxic"
    This is extremely dangerous for our country.
    Their only aim is how to win an election, how to amass wealth and then how to win next election.
    Rest everything has taken a back seat.
    AND to win an election they stoop to any level, that's why I call them "toxic"
    Just look at Ananth Kumar Hegde and the way he is abusing the ruling party using filthy language.

    Discipline should start at the top then it will go down to lower politicians. If the top people open their mouth and talk rubbish rest of their folk talk rubbish. People should respect the dignity of the post they are holding. If a uneducated person gets the top most post, and talks rubbish then dignity of top post is lost.

    Wrong. No one building a roof first and then the foundation when constructing a house or Building. Morality/discipline/concern for others must start at the grass root of our families. If this happens, you dont need parallel policing...

    Cubs, Scout or NCC we need them back at school levels and their participation alongwith the Traffic Police on Road Discipline is the need of ghe hour. One may find it silly. But in no time public will realuse that what is taught by their own sibbling and the way they have to respond itself will be a revolution.

    People will definitely forget communal politics and march towards a healthy education

    For everything one need not depend too much on parents and teachers. We ourself should cultivate and develop discipline which is very useful in our routine life. Let us observe others and try to learn from them and mould our life. Too much dependence is very bad. We are human beings and we can do our best.
