The Aam Aadmi Party's (AAP) aspiration for joining national politics is like a newborn willing to join college instead of starting from scratch, spiritual guru Sri Sri Ravi Shankar said here on Tuesday.

During an informal chat with TOI, Sri Sri said Arvind (Kejriwal) may be doing it with good intention. "But we need a strong government at the Centre. Can't take risk with a party with no experience...Right now the country is on a ventilator. We need a strong and decisive government. If AAP can't handle Delhi, how can it handle the nation?," Sri Sri asked. He was here to attend Foresight, an annual event of private news channel OTV.

Sri Sri cautioned voters to think twice before they elect a candidate for parliament. It should be to ensure a strong and stable government.

Asked whether Narendra Modi or Rahul Gandhi will make a better PM, Sri Sri didn't take a name, but said experience should mater. Speaking about the current state of affairs in the government, he said a situation has arisen where no officer wants to take a decision. Bureaucrats and police are afraid of taking action, leading to policy paralysis.

On Delhi Police should stay with Centre or Delhi government, Sri Sri said wherever the institution stays, there must a mechanism where honest officers can be able to work without fear. Sri Sri said Indian education is more theoretical, not practical leading to unemployment. Skill development centres are more important. There is a lot of opportunities for employment if students are imparted various skill training, he said.

Sri Sri said agriculture sector in the country needs to be revived. He blamed NREGA for ruin of agriculture sector.

 Art of Living founder and spiritual leader Sri Sri Ravi Shankar said on Saturday that though it was not appropriate for him to favour a particular party, he said it was time to get rid of 'khhichdi sarkar'.

He said coalition governments in India have not been a good experience. He also appealed to people not to vote for corrupt politicians who offer bribes to woo voters. Speaking at a news conference in the city, Sri Sri said people accept bribes due to poverty. "But that is not a sin as a corrupt politician would only be giving prospective voters their own money, not his. So, even if they take money, they should not vote for such a candidate. This will nip corruption in the bud," he said.

Sri Sri also addressed around 1 lakh followers in the city in a satsang and exhorted them to vote for morally upright candidates. "I am here to ask voters to select morally upright candidates, not the corrupt. Parties give tickets to immoral candidates merely because they have a vote bank," he said.
