Politicising the youth


Many politics parties have started giving the youth demographic much importance but this is not necessarily a good thing. Some political parties are trying to hijack the youth and only limit them to politics and use them for their own interest. Political parties should give the youth a platform to express their respective talents but must refrain from using them for violent ends and to promote polarisation. There is a difference between healthy and unhealthy politicisation.

I feel political parties should organise different kind of events for the youth to demonstrate their true talent. Events like declamations contests and Model United Nations (MUNs) should be organised to inculcate leadership skills. Likewise, sports ands and other events should also be organised to channel the youth’s energies into positive directions.
