Doctor Johnson said. Politics is the refuge of scoundrels In fact, if a politician wants to be a success, he should either be a rogue or become a rogue after entering politics. It is not possible for an honest man to remain in politics for a long time because he has to-tell lies, make false promises, and think of his own interests. Despite these negative aspects of politics it has glamor and attraction. A number of people with the remote hope of coming to the top ruin their career. Moreover politics is so much time-consuming that it is not possible for a person to pay attention to anything else.
In view of the above-mentioned aspects at politics. We can say that the students should not take part in politics. Their primary duty is towards their education. They should not indulge in politics because it will divert their attention and make them follow the wrong path. It they neglect their studies, their whole life will be unhappy. Politics would create a tension in their minds and they would he thinking of defeating the other party. On the other hand, studies need a very balanced and patient approach.
By bringing politics to the universities and colleges, we will make them unsuitable for helping the nation to progress Young people are enthusiastic so is their zest for bringing certain changes. They do certain things which may not be in the larger interest of the country. Politics if indulged in by immature people may endanger politics. So it is said that the students being immature in their thinking should never indulge in politics because it is not in the National interests.
Students can easily be exploited by the politicians for their personal ends. They try to utilize the youth force for their personal a. This tendency is also not conducive to the welfare at the nation. This type of exploitation generally results in violence.
In fact, the students are not so much interested in politics as the politicians want them to be. The politicians generally try to pick up one or the other problem concerning universities or colleges and make the students agitate against it. The worst part of it is that the college and university teachers are themselves politicians or they have political affiliations. So in order to win favor of their patrons they try to make capital out of the situation. Till this interference by the politicians in the affairs of universities of colleges is not stopped, it may not be possible to weed out politics tram these institutions. So students will stop taking part in politics it the politicians observe the code at conduct and do not keep their personal interests in mind.
Some people may say that complete indifference to politics will make the students politically ignorant. On the other hand, in a democratic state citizen must be politically aware. They may infer that till students take part in politics they will not acquire the qualities of a good citizen, they should understand politics but they should not take part in it. College unions create unhealthy atmosphere but. Unfortunately these are patronized by the political parties. Educational institutions should be free from politics.
