Manmohan Singh  - Qualification 
The best thing happened to India was that some sensible people elected Dr. Manmohan Singh as the Finance Minister in 1991. Now Sonia Gandhi selected him as the Prime Minister of our Great (full of corruption) Nation. At times people settled abroad and others living in India talk about how he is running the government, and lots of time I hear that he is not a strong leader, he is a puppet of Sonia etc. Guys PLEASE support him for 1 term in the government, we need him more then he needs the post of PM. He will change the nation if we give him 100% support for 5 years. Is it too much to ask? We have supported people like Devi Lal, V P Singh (made the country bank corrupt) and many others, those who had no idea or experience to run a nation of 1billion people. We have corruption in most govt. departments, no infrastructure, no basic roads etc. etc.

So people please have faith in this man and give him 110% biased free SUPPORT and if you think he is not qualified person then read his CV and I can assure you that he will become your choice for the PM post not for 1 term but as many terms he likes. 

We all love India and the only way we can help our country to become stronger is to support right people for the right jobs. In my view there should be minimum qualification requirement  for all politicians, at present if you can kill, know how to cheat, qualified as corrupt person, never went to school,  passed your exams by cheating and love to lie is the criteria today to join Indian politics.

How can our nation be strong if have such people are running the economy of  the country with population of over 1 billion people? Today if you need a job as a receptionist, clerk etc. in a multi national organisation you might have to go through at least 2-3 interviews, background check, may be a test to get a low level position, but to become a minister or a PM of India you do not need any qualification. Which century are we living in? WE have people like Lalu Prasad Yadav, Mulyam Singh and many more ask them their CV, and you will realise how qualified they are, No organisation will hire them but they are the rulers of our GREAT nation.

If you think any of my views make any sense and you want to add some more to it please feel free to email me. I would love to hear from you and in case you support my views then please spread these views to others. To build a strong nation we have to change some basics and simple things.

What  we need is -:
1. Minimum qualification requirement for Politicians
2. Retire age for Politicians (In India no politician has ever retired)
3. Every child to get educationl 

If we can try to fix these 3 simple things then the changes will be huge on the nation. Now you will ask how can we change all this living here in US, Australia or any other country? Guys lets first believe in our 3 core values and if we can have huge numbers around the world agreeing on our 3 core values then I can tell no one in the world can stop us to make amendments to the constitution.

So it is simple and easy if you like the idea send me an email and start promoting the idea to others, as we need number we are not a political party, we are we are the people who wants to change our GREAT country to be the BEST in the world. I am sure if we Indians can do so well overseas then no one can stop us to change few basic things to make India a better country.
