Students and politics have a great relation between them.Some people think that this relation is good but think bad of it.What is politics?"Politics is the refuge of scoundrels",said Dr.Johnson.It is not possible for an honest man to remain in politics for a long time because one has to tell lies,make false promises and think of his own interest.
By keeping the above mentioned aspects of politics,we can say that students should not take part in politics.The primary duty of the students is toward their education.When they take part in politics their mind is diverted towards the politics and they leave their interest in studies which is not good for a student.Politics would create a tension in their mind and they would always be thinking of staging a show-down of the other party.
Student can easily be exploited by the politicians for their personal benefit.The politician generally try to pick up one or the other problem concerning the universities or colleges and make the students to agitate against it.The worst part of it is that the college and university teachers are themselves politicians .So in order to win favour of their patrons they try to make capital out of situation.this is very bad for the health of our nation.
Some may say that complete indifference to politics will make the students politically ignorant.
In my view students should understand politics through education though they should not take part in it.College unions create unhealthy atmosphere but unfortunately these are patronised by the political parties.Educational institution should be completely free from politics.
