The Chief Minister said: "Delhi government gives a lot of importance to education as they believe that no country can develop till the citizens are prepared."
"Many governments said they would built smart cities and smart villages but it didn't happen. If you make citizens smart, then they themselves would make the city smart," Kejriwal said, in an apparent reference to the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)-led central government.
He said there is no developed country in the world whose citizens are not developed.
"Educated citizens is the necessary and sufficient condition for a country to be developed," he added.
Addressing the students, the Chief Minister said: "When you get out of here, you shouldn't search for jobs but give jobs, you should become entrepreneurs."
Education Minister Manish Sisodia presided over the function and Speaker, Delhi Assembly, Ram Niwas Goel was the Guest of Honour and Secretary of Training & Technical Education, Punya S. Srivastava was the distinguished guest.
