“Just as students in our country dream of studying at Harvard in America or in another country,” he said. He said the Kejriwal government is the only government in the country spending 25 percent of the total budget on education. “The government has set itself the goal of getting the educational institutions in Delhi among the best educational institutions in the world. Because if the level of our university is high, the country will also reach new heights of development, ”he added.
The fate of every country should be written after the history of its universities, he said, adding that the role of universities in the economic development of any developed nation must be studied in order to learn more. Using Israel as an example, he said that it was a small country, but its universities had played an important role in its economic development. “Their educational model focuses on developing extreme confidence in children,” he said. At the convocation, 2,480 students, including 2,233 UG, 557 PG and 50 doctoral students, were awarded their degrees.
