Andez Raj started this petition to Citizens of Indian Republic

India has been a vibrant democracy for the last 72 years, despite several odd circumstances which challenged the democratic order. We have 545 Parliamentary constituencies in India, through which we select 545 Members to represent the constituencies and select the Prime Minister of India. Though the Constitution of India assures an opportunity to its citizen from all walks of life, the parliamentary proceedings have proven that it sometimes proves to be the billingsgate of India. Some kind of talks by the MPs prove they don't even have the basic civic sense. Moreover ,when the nation has evolved to admit our medical, engineering and other professional students with an entrance exam, the lawmakers who represent the people must do qualify to have some eligibility criteria, which must include their knowledge about the constitution, civic sense, basic political science, public administration, history, geography etc, which will be crucial in law making. 

Our constitution offers Equality of Education, still we introduce a eligibility criteria comprising the minimum skill/ knowledge requirements. Taking precedence from that, introduce an Eligibility Entrance Exam for Politicians, make it mandatory for every Politician who wants to contest in elections.
