    THE CONGRESS PRESENT POLICY THE YOUTH SHOULD FOLLOW THE GROWTH OF INDIA BY RULING POLITICS. MODERNIZATION IN INDIAN POLICS IS NECESSARY SINCE ALL THE MINISTERS AND MOST OF THE RULING IN CONGRESS AND ALSO IN BJP AND OTHER PARTIES CROSSED MORE THAN SIXTY OF AGE. EFFICIENCY WILL BE BE MET ONLY BY YOUNG . THAT IS WHY THE GOVERNMENT IS BROUGHT THE RETIREMENT AGE SIXTY FOR GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS AND SEND THEM WITH PENSION BENIFIT. THE SAME POLICY SHOULD BE FOLLOWED IN POLITICS ESPECIALLY IN RULING POLITICIAN NOT MORE THAN SIXTY WHAT EVER POST HE MAY LEAD. IT IS RIGHT AND REAL POLITICS. THE SAME WAS PROMOTED IN HIMACHAL PRADESH ASSEMBLY

    The list is erroneous. Mr. Prem Kumar Dhumal is actually a Doctorate and hence termed Prof. Prem Kumar Dhumal, yet here he is shown as only a graduate.

    I’m not saying that makes him any better though.

    The qualification of Mr. Prem Kumar Dhumal does not seem to be correct. As he supposed to be a Professor.
