Jyotiraditya Scindia, one of the prominent MPs among the youth leaders in Congress, has said that he supports sting operations as long as they are in "public interest".

He also stated that he is against a retirement age in politics.

"Why retirement age in a profession? The decision as to whom to elect is taken by the people. We are living in the world's largest democracy having more than a billion people," Scindia, second time MP and Congress leader, said in an interview.

Noting that the current Lok Sabha has also the largest number of young members, he said that if the "graph of young members is on the rise, then there is no cause for worry".

Jyotiraditya, who plunged into politics some five years back after the death of his father Madhavrao Scindia, described as unfortunate the televisionexposes involving MPs, but said "I can support a sting operation as long as it is in public interest".

He also shrugged off questions of hisaspiring to be the future chief minister of Maharashtra.
