Former Governors joining politics: It's unfair
It refers to former Arunachal Governor (also former Army Chief) Joginder Jaswant Singh likely to contest for elections to Punjab state assembly as a party candidate.
There should be a rule whereby persons having held posts of President, Vice President and Governors may not be allowed to enter politics.

Even nominated members of Raya Sabha should also not be allowed to remain active politicians to contest any direct or indirect election.

Persons desiring to enter active politics must not accept such high posts of President, Vice President, state-Governor and nomination to Rajya Sabha.

To avoid life-long ambitions of politicians, there should be an upper age limit of say 65 years to contest direct elections. Experienced persons if needed in politics can be sent to Rajya Sabha with useless concept of state legislative councils (Vidhan Parishads) abolished.

One-Person/One-Post should be applicable in all legislative memberships. Since being a Parliamentarian or state-legislator in itself is a big task taking also care of their voters and constituencies, Parliamentarians and state legislators should not be allowed to hold any post in party or even in other private bodies.
