<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis today said academic qualification has been a lesser acknowledged aspect in politics, which has led to an assumption that being a politician one has to be cunning. The popular notion that to join politics, one has to be street smart and cunning, should change, Fadnavis said in a video message. He was addressing a gathering via video message at the launch of Indian Institute of Democratic Leadership by Rambhau Mhalgi Prabodhini here in south Mumbai. “It is necessary to have a broader perspective of the society and understand the challenges. Sometimes, even IAS qualified students do not understand the complexities of society,” he said in the message.(This article has not been edited by DNA’s editorial team and is auto-generated from an agency feed.)
