“Until the top brass institutes like IITs and DTUs take a resolution that the students passing out will majorly be job providers, not job seekers ― the curriculum design teams of the institutes should have something for introspection. As a Nationalist, the nation expects you to be techno-entrepreneurs in-stead of becoming Job seekers only, that’s the greatest need of the country today in the era of growing unemployment.” Dy CM and Delhi Education Minister, Shri Manish Sisodia said this at the 5th Convocation ceremony of Delhi Technological University, in the presence or Lt.
