BANGALORE: Old stereotypes of politicians no longer hold good. And for those who have had done enough of ringside criticism and are ready to take the political plunge themselves, here’s a start.
The National Institute of Political Excellence was launched in the city on Sunday. Former chief minister H D Kumaraswamy inaugurated the course at Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan, in the presence of law minister S Suresh Kumar and freedom fighter H S Doreswamy.
Institute authorities said the course includes classes on Indian Constitution, history, culture, law and religion. Communication skills will be a focus area. Finer nuances like mingling with different sets of people and handling them will also be covered.
The course will give the students a chance to watch house proceedings and subsequent discussions on the floor. Fees for the three-month course is Rs 5,000.
