It is noteworthy that debate was extempore. The topic of the debate was “There should be minimum education qualification for people’s representatives”. Given the relevancy of the topic an interesting debate was witnessed at the event.
Speaking in the favour of the topic, participants argued that minimum educational qualification should be essential for public representatives as the opposite might endanger the very foundations of democracy. However, opponents contended that leadership quality is not dependent upon educational qualification as it requires practical knowledge rather than bookish knowledge.
Judges declared Faiz Khan and Aprajita Singh as best English Speakers respectively while Ananya Bhatt and Suchi Sharma were declared Runners up.
