Even one of the most prestigious post holder of the nation CHIEF JUSTICE of INDIA has a fixed retirement age of 65.

I guess people are forced to retire at a certain age mainly for two reasons. 1. They may not be able work as effectively as they did during their 30s/40s. 2. I think retiring old people will enable the younger generation to get into the work pool. If there are any other reasons, please let me know. So when all government employees (right from a clerk to the topmost admin) have a retirement age, why isnt there one for people contesting the elections. I got the list of current Lok Sabha MPs and there are more than 150 people who are 60+. Thats more than 25% of the House. Some argue that experience comes of age.

There certainly shud be a retirement age for PMs MLAs and Ministers.
Senile old men are controlled by their sycophants! Most of the oldies in power are NOT capable of taking decision themselves!
