Those adopting developmental politics will be re-elected: Kalam
Hyderabad: Former President APJ Abdul Kalam today said that people focussing on "developmental politics" in the country would get elected again in 2014.
"According to me, politics has got two components -- one is political politics and another is developmental politics. In our country political politics is done 70 per cent and 30 per cent is developmental politics and actually it (such trend) should get reversed.
Few states are doing developmental politics and again and again they are getting elected. So probably...In the general elections, we may see a trend that the people who are doing developmental politics they will get elected," Kalam said.
He was replying to questions after participating in the convocation ceremony of the 92nd degree engineering course and the 19th technical entry scheme course (B Tech Programme) conducted by the Military College of Electronics and Mechanical Engineering (MCEME) here.
