Admission Notification
POLITICAL SCHOOL BATCH 2017-18

One Year Residential Training for the Youths Interested in Politics

TRAINING SCHOOL
FOR ENTRANCE TO POLITICS
Jalandhar, Punjab (India)

60 years ago, the champion of social justice Dr. B R Ambedkar with his thirty long years experience in active politics established 'Training School for Entrance to Politics' in July 1956 to groom youths for effective and genuine representation in our parliament & state legislatures. But, this visionary school was shut-down very soon after his death. It was such a unique institution in India that even today there exists none of its kind. Now, in the current scenario, when youths have disenchantment towards politics with inefficient, immoral and irresponsible representatives and many maladies in our parliamentary democracy in general and politics of social justice in particular, it becomes indispensable to revive this cherished institution of Ambedkar on an urgent basis. Therefore, Political School Foundation (a registered non-profit organisation, MCA, Govt. of India) is pleased to reinstate this precious thought by initiating one year training program in order to provide a golden opportunity to youths in enhancing their skill & knowledge in practical Politics.
