Students of Delhi government schools are becoming smart entrepreneurs as well as responsible citizens by learning the concepts of establishing their start-ups at a young age, Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia said on Monday. Addressing students at a government school in East Delhi's Mandawali Fazalpur, Mr Sisodia said that through the 'Business Blasters' programme, the students of Delhi government schools are turning into job creators and not job seekers.
"I am happy to see that the children of government schools are dreaming of starting their own businesses and are eager to experiment in their respective fields. The Delhi government will support their determination and hard work in every way and their businesses will create new job opportunities," Mr Sisodia said.
