Comments Karad, “India is rapidly moving towards robust and structurally sound global economic superpower but to win this race we will need progressive and knowledgeable leaders who can cross this hurdle that arise in political decision making. At MIT-SOG we are trying to bridge this gap and committed to create leaders for tomorrow who have the required dedication for the nation-building. To strengthen this, we have started the UGC approved two years Masters in Political Leadership Government (MPG) and BCS which is the largest classroom of over 10,000 politically active students of India and the world for creating future political leaders. BCS is critical to developing a sense of character and the right ideals among the youth, and giving them an opportunity to interact with some of the best minds in the country. The overwhelming response to the last eight editions has positioned BCS as a platform for the youth of the country, where they can share their views and concerns on the issues pertaining to them. On this occasion, I would also like to thank Devendra Fadnavis – honourable chief minister of Maharashtra for supporting this endeavour by becoming the chief patron.”
