Bangalore: A unanimous voice among the Indian youths of today is to enter active politics, to bring a change, freshness and flow of new ideas in Indian politics. Youth wings are present in all parties but they are used only for the promotion and advertising of the party. They play a very crucial role in major political parties but their role in National politics is hindered and inadequate. Britain, the country from which we derived much of our political framework, boasts of a 43-year-old PM, David Cameron.

But back home, the story is quite different; we have to make do with the likes of Manmohan Singh. Youngsters have still made to the first level of Indian politics with most of them bagging the tag of Member of Parliament (MP), but they have a long way to go to become minister to carry the burden of an important ministry. For now, they are behind the screens and play the role of junior ministers.

Here is the list of the 10 prominent young politicians of India who hold a promising future in Indian politics:

1. Agatha K. Sangam (born July 24, 1980):

Agatha Sangma debuted in Indian politics in the 15th Lok Sabha


Agatha Sangma debuted in Indian politics in the 15th Lok Sabha by elections after her father P.A. Sangam resigned from his seat to join state politics. She became the youngest Indian MP at the age of 29. She represents the Tura constituency of Meghalaya on the ticket of Nationalist Congress Party (NCP). She heads the ministry of Rural development for the state. Agatha has a LLB degree from Pune University and also a Masters in Environmental Management from Nottingham University, UK.

1: i can't understand you why not add this list mr.varun gandhi.jitin prsas anurag thakur ?

2: All politicians should be beaten black n blue and shot dead once they are into corruption, this has to be included in Lokpal bill.
Posted by:savitha - 13 Sep, 2011
3: There are many other names which are missing from this list like Jitin Prasad, Sandeep Dixit,Ankur Singh who have done much significant works as compared to these guys.
Posted by:Prateek S - 11 Sep, 2011
4: It is unfortunate that most of the ten, except Naveen Jindal and Priya Dutt are sons or daughters of politicians themselves. Well it looks like even Priya Dutt is, considering Sunil Dutt was a politician of sorts.

Whatever little is written here about Naveen Jindal is impressive. All power to him.

5: None of them are self made, all came from dynasty only....
Posted by:Sandeep - 07 Sep, 2011
6: The young made the big leap to become an MP but after that they are just taking home their perks and funds. It is high time such young people are given Portfolios according to their qualification. IT, Telecom, Industries, Rural Development, Urban development, Environment, Sports, Civil aviation, Education and Welfare of Children and Women should definitely go to these you MPs who are below 40-45 yrs of age.

7: Top 10 young politicians - simple ques is WHAT IS THE USE?

8: interesting.....I can see only the names of the sons and daughters of great political leaders....it reflects politics is a private business in India......It is something to worry about the largest democracy of the world.
Posted by:saurabh yashraj shukla - 05 Sep, 2011
9: Except one Navin Jindal all other names in the list have inherited their plitical constituencies. Don't understand why do they feature here. Beconming MP and ministers by legacy is the only their qualification. Due this attitude ofmedia other young people who are other wise quite active in public life are not able to enter the politics.

I fully endorse mr.AM.It is a pity that the list of 10 young politicians of India has very purposely omitted the most important young MP Mr.Varun Gandhi and also most of these people are the offsprings of rotten politicians.Again family rule ?

20: These politicians will make Hi-Tech corruption and create "Loot Lo India" picture in 3D/Animation version.
Posted by:Manoj - 05 Sep, 2011
21: None of the ten are first generation Politicians. Its the family tradition that has got the ten into the Politics
Fresh faces with fresh ideas are needed to change politics. Not the same type who grow up and get trained in the traditional politics.
Posted by:Prof K.K.Pande - 05 Sep, 2011
22:
True, this is what Indian politics. No more, common man like me or you never become MP.
Whatever reasons, India never going to change, unless there is big revolution. I think, we need common man, who has vision for the country- not for selfish. Hoping for those days and those people---do we have answer?

24: Dear Frend He does not want that the loan should waived off .. but denied that the loan or something else persist . The corrupt Govn had Rounded him .. it seems you do not watch even news or you are son of a corrupt politicians who heated by Mr. Kejriwal
Posted by:vineet - 05 Sep, 2011
25: what is the intergrity of Kejriwal?
he wants the loan to be waived off as he was working for the public good
Posted by:Victor - 05 Sep, 2011
26:
Victor integrity of Kejriwal is he took study leave for studying RTI acts implemented in the better democracies compared to ours. His loan would not have been a loan if he had completed service of three years after returning from the study leave. Unfortunately he realised after one year of service after returning that the work on RTI act was not going anywhere and hence to devote time for compiling a version of the act that can be brought as a bill in the parliament, he took unpaid leave. Because he could not fulfill bonded three years service, he has become a bonded labour to Govt to return the money and thus that money has become a loan for which he is asking for a waiver because he was working on the same subject for which he took the study leave. Ultimately the RTI act was passed again because of the dedication and Anna Hazare's fast in Mumbai. Surely you have a twisted sense of an irrational brain.
Mahen Replied to: Victor - 05 Sep, 2011
27:
It is observed that Mr. Mahen has heard clarification given by Mr. Kejriwal. He has stated that after his study leave, he has served the I.T.Deptt. for about 3 and half years. Regarding leave salary, he has stated that he has donation for social cause. Besides this, he has stated that any dues outstanding, may please adjusdted against his G.P.Fund. You must his zeal for assisdting make draft for anty corruption and efforts done in this regard. You are requested to introspect your self.

You spelt my mind. The young politicians only there to safeguard the family assets looted from us. Nothing will change until a revolution exists.

32: Dear Suhrud, I am very grateful to your mail. We want evidence to come out, that is transperancy. Unfortunately my comments were based on lack of knowledge about the ten young politicians, I went only by the information provided in this article. The 4th Estate, that is the media unfortunately is so scared to talk truth and call a spade a spade that their so called investigative reporting is half truths which can make more damage than no truth. We want the Kejriwals and Annas and Kiran Bedis of India to really bring the corrupt to book. The politicians are so savvy that even a Narayana Murthy who is simple soul can be taken by their soft spoken highly articulated political talk. Mr. Murthy is all praise for the Politicians. I see very little of that praise in his support to the Anna and team, most of his talk was guarded and with some conditionality in praise. Even he does not have the courage that a Narendra Mody, a Kejriwal, a Bedi or a Prashant Bhushan have. All the politicians, media and other comentators consider themselves the custodian of Indian thinking. Unfortunately it is only half truth or guarded comment and not the WHOLE TRUTH. Bravo Anna, Narendra Modi, Kejriwal, Bedi and the like.

In gujarat bharat solanki son of Madhavsingh solanki .... he has several wives he wants a new lady ever month ... he drinks a lot even though there is prohibition in Gujarat ,he and his family is involved in all sortrs of illegal trades ,he is involved in some worst quality politics dividing society into several segments, IN FACT IT SHOULD BE SAID THAT MAN LIKE MODI IS SUCCESS AND CONGRESS IS AT LOSS BECAUSE OF SUCH PEOPLE IN CONGRESS , PEOPLE SEE THAT MODI IS BETTER AS COMPARED TO PEOPLE LIKE BHARATSINGH IN KANGRES what about pawars daughter .... karunanidhis daughter ,kanimozi.....Rahulbaba above all... arrested at American airport with a daughter of drug mafia and illegal money, rape of sukanya... false degree certificates... list and their deeds are endless

With regards, I don't agree with you. I am prepared to argue so that you may think in the right direction to see the scams done by the politicians, burocrats, corporate sector and NGOs. Crores of crores money earned on the cost of poor people, lying in the foreign banks. Do you justify that people in crores are below dthe poverty line and a few not more than 200 have to think that how to spend money for their aiso aaram, vilasta.
Ved Prakash T. Nagpal Replied to: Suhrud Patel - 05 Sep, 2011
35: I see comments which are very subjective and devoid of objectivity. The ten promising young politicians can have any heritage but they can rise above the heritage and be their original self and have the courage to find a path away from the path followed by their parents. Except one, the rest seem to have the makings of good politicians provided they show their education and experience means they are not necessarily clones of the political class of yesteryears but they have their own mind supported by rational and honest approach which can give them the courage to break the shackles of their elders.

37: where ever these sons and daughters of Politicians study whether its Boston, Harvard or Cambridge but the blood they carry is of those corrupt politicians who have sold the nation not once but several times. These young lads grew up seeing all that therefore corruption might be something usual to them.
Where were these idiots when Anna Hazare was fasting for the nation. None of them came up to show courage.
No Indian can see any hope in these faces. They are just big names and nothing else.
Good For Nothing. They must remember than even INDIAN donkeys are earning something for the nation.

49: It is definitely not a sin to be a politician's son/daughter to be in politics. However, it is a sad commentary that among the ten young politicians the least educated one holds the most commanding prospects in politics. This confirms that unless you have connections, money and god knows what other LINKS, competence, knowledge as well as integrity takes a back seat in Indian politics when the world is struggling towards more transparent and knowledge based polity. India progresses, not because of the powerful politicians and bureaucracy but DESPITE the stranglehold of them.
Posted by:Mahen - 05 Sep, 2011
50: It's not the sin to be son or daughter of a politician once the integrity of the individual is unquestionable. So instead of getting knee jerk judgemnetal we should appreciate that only the best can survive anywhere.
Posted by:Robin Ray - 05 Sep, 2011
51: Almost all of them are sons/daughters of politicians. To bring effective transformation youth from ordinary apolitical families need get elected.
Posted by:V.K.Saini - 04 Sep, 2011
52: This is disgusting. We talk about merit for every job, from an attender to CEO. But see the list, it is slap on democracy. Not even an exception is possible where people with merit will enter into politics. We should ban family members of politicians enetring into politics. That is the only way where other well deserving people can get into politics. With this kind of inheritance Indian politics will not get the talented people it has for its service.
Posted by:Laxman M - 04 Sep, 2011
53: Very much true and agreed. when we talk about the young politician then how much of them is not relative of existing or former politicians.
What is the luck of the worlds biggest democracy is if you go for a job of peon then your minimum qualification required but for being a Parliamentary member no minimum qualification.
If you are a govt servant your minimum retired age is defined but if you are a politician then you can be parliamentary member till 100 years of age.
Posted by:vks - 04 Sep, 2011
54: Look at each and every young politicians, these all are son/daughter of passive/active politicians, no any other youngster without political background. It means politics is hereditary, we must change it.
They even don't know necessary needs of comman man.
We must change it by supporting young and honest youngster who know problem of Indian society.
We must change hereditary in politics.
