The Indian Institute of Democratic Leadership (IIDL), started by BJP vice-president Vinay Sahasrabuddhe, has launched an academic programme in leadership, politics and governance.
The course, according to the institute, aims at providing participants with necessary skill-sets for making a career in politics and public affairs.
The induction programme of the course, which the institute, said is s post-graduate programme, was held at the Rambhau Mhalgi Prabodhini in adjoining Thane district today.
Sahasrabuddhe, a Rajya Sabha member, is vice-chairman of the Prabodhini.
“For the first time we have started a post-graduate programme in leadership, politics and governance. This is the first of its kind programme in the country,” Sahasrabuddhe said.
“There is a dearth of leadership in practically every walk of life. We don’t have good institution leaders to man our colleges, universities, NGOs. We don’t have good thought leaders. We lack good managers in socio-political sphere,” Sahasrabuddhe told
